First Time Playing

Tried the sparrow course for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. This course being the shorter of the two on this property was a great length for all golfers. Fairways and greens are in great condition considering the low cost of this track. Some beautiful holes, my initial favourite is the the first part 5 on the front. Dogleg with a hazard carry to the green. Had a friendly round with a member and a former member. I will be back to try the Huron course!

Another Great Round on The Sparrow

We love the Sparrow. Purchased a Hot Deal through golf now. With the fee charged, it would have been almost cheaper to book through the golf course directly. Thankfully the weather, although a bit chilly, was great. We would not have been able to cancel if it was raining as predicted.
The course was, as always, a pleasure to play. We were able to get out a bit early which was awesome.
