The fairway is also the rough and fringe
No point lining up a putt. The greens are... Lumpy?
So you have no idea where a putt will go.
The fairways are the same length as the rough. Funny thing, the fringe is the same length as the fairways!
Also the grass on the greens were as long as a normal fairway would be.
Never have I gone to a course and thought, "man I might lose a kidney here". So that was a wild first.
Spend the extra money go to a slightly more expensive course.
If you choose this one still then I look forward to reading your review.
last played this course 2 yrs. ago and conditions better however greens still need work.
Value for money.
I haven't played here in a decade and before that I was a member when I was a teen and back then the course was in its prime. I'd say as the owners would describe its a work in progress to bring it back to its former glory. We had a cart that was failing but was quickly switched out . The club house needs an overhaul, signs need to be hung back up on some holes and the garbage bins were full on a lot of holes. For the online deal of 30 bucks for 2 to play 18 obv not much to really complain about but pointing out a few needed improvements. The course is great for medium and short hand game. Fairways were a bit long but greens were decent. If your trying to compare this course to an 80 dollar course don't, just go play here and have a good time.
Staff was helpful
I have requested to tee off early and since was not too busy that time the staff had allowed me to come early!
Upgrade from last time
From previous years this course is definitely upgraded. New staff, clubhouse is open, owner isn’t driving his car on the course to yell at people to get off, so that’s a big bonus. The only downfall the last 3 times I’ve been there is the greens were recently punched and there’s mud on them causing the ball to bounce when putting and the grass is the Fairway isn’t cut short enough along with the grass is the rough, lose balls to easily. Easily fixable though so definitely a 7-7.8 from before which was a 3-4.
Nice course to sharpen your skills
This was my second time in consecutive days ( since I was holidaying with my family at Niagara Falls.
I would love to go there and play anytime. The pace is great, no one pushes you and the layout is fantastic.
Nice one for beginners
Liked the layout of the golf course but it was a bit muddy in hole 2, otherwise it was good. It’s a bit complex because of the narrow fairways but it is good to gain experience. The staff / owners are really nice and helpful. If it was a bit nearer to my place I would have gone here more often.
Nice and friendly golf course
This is a very good and quite golf course. Loved playing here.
This shouldn’t even be called a golf course.
It’s completely unplayable and unenjoyable I read reviews online and they were bad but I thought they were being picky
They weren’t lying greens aren’t even greens it’s black dirt
Payed for 18 but couldn’t stand to play the back 9 and got a refund
Price was right
Price was right with a hot deal. Course conditions were expected. Same level cut grass with bumpy greens that are a working progress. Staff member was very friendly and kind. Great course for beginners to get out and hit some shots. Great for long drives and approach shots. Play at your own pace which was fantastic. Fun day to swing some sticks and not worry about the score card.
This course appears to be neglected. Tee boxes not cut, greens are full of dead grass. Carts run poorly. There are way better courses in this price range/difficulty. I would not recommend this course to anyone, even beginners.
Good practice course for high handicappers
I love the game of golf I'm not very good at it (I typically shoot around 100) and it's an expensive and time-consuming hobby. Ever since COVID, golf courses in the Niagara Region have become much more expensive and very crowded. I'm not interested in paying $70+ to spend more time watching the group ahead than actually golfing. Most courses I used to go to go now take 5 hours on average to play 18.
I tried Water Park for the first time recently. Admittedly it is a very poorly maintained course, and it is 100% a cow pasture - zero elevation or creativity. The fairway is actually first-cut rough, the bunkers are literally unplayable, and the greens are very slow and bumpy (but somehow they still roll pretty true). If you're looking for a proper course, this is not the place.
However, I was able to finish 18 holes in 2.5 hours on a Saturday at midday in July. Unlike other discount courses such as Brock or Garden City, you can pull driver on most holes and the six par 3s are all of decent length. Therefore, for someone of my skill and budget level I will very likely return to this course with friends of a similar ilk.
Good for value
I like the layout of the course. But some of the tee boxes have long grass to hit from and the greens are basically unputtable.
Good price ($12) poor greens and long grass
Not the best kept fairways (super long grass both on the fairway and tee off blocks) and greens were TERRIBLE!! With how bad they are they should add an extra stroke to par because your ball will bounce all over the aerated greens…. Almost like golfing moguls. A few redeeming qualities of this course are it’s not super busy so pace of play is good, it’s CHEAP, and most holes are good distance so great to work long game.
