Rainy day in September

Public play allowed in September. Good but not great for a private course. Not up to standards of other area private courses like Muskoka Bay or Clublink. Good value for $95.

Members get better treatment

Semi private course, played with a buddy that has a cottage on the lake and we boated over. When they are busy they give the better power carts to members and the less charged ones to guests. We had two power carts that ran out of battery before finishing 18 which was frustrating. The staff have some customer service skill they need to polish up. Oh and don’t play after a rain or you will be walking on swamp grass - poor irrigation on all holes. If it weren’t for the “cool factor” of boating over and being picked up and at the dock and dropped off after the round I’d rather play a local muni

Great weekend course to play with friends

If you have a cottage on the lake this is the course to play. You can boat over to the dock and get a ride from one of the guys in the pro shop up to the course with your clubs. The course has large fairways that are easy to hit so you can bring beginner golfers here and they will enjoy themselves.

Classic Stanley Thompson

Course conditions were excellent. Very old mature Stanley Thompson that is fair but challenging. Located a bit off the beaten path but worth the drive.

Very nice course. The staff was very friendly. Unfortunately, some of thre fairways were being aerated which took away from the otherwise pleasant experience.

Great conditions, rude staff

The course was a little wet after heavy rains but otherwise in great shape with the greens very smooth. We walked it in three and a half hours as a slow foursome let us play through. This is a classic old style layout with interesting design and small greens. Fair but challenging. Unfortunately our only interaction with a staff member was the young lady who checked us in and was very rude. Seems that the GolfNow bookings aren’t as welcome as the members. I had a similar experience earlier this year where I was greeted with “oh, you’re the GolfNow group”. If they don’t want public play (they always needed it pre-Covid by the way) then don’t allow it. Treating green fee players like second class citizens in the one year that a pandemic makes you busy doesn’t seem like a good long term plan to me. Like I said, excellent course though. We will keep playing here and endure the 2 minutes of poor treatment at check in.
