The greens were small but were a size indicative of an executive course. They look nice but you can tell the grass is a bit uneven and rolls were not always true.
The surrounding fairway grass is trimmed neatly and the overall appearance is very nice. Being an executive course there really is no rough or fairway. Play on!
The tees are something unique (to me anyways). It was the first time I've run across artificial turf on a course. The tee pads have 3 rubber plugs like the kind used at a driving range, and you're asked to use them.
Not all the holes have yardage signs so you'd best keep an eye on your scorecard.
Executive courses typically do not do anything wild or elaborate. Canadian Shield uses what is available in ways of trees and a small pond. There is some elevation change on the course and a few green side bunkers can come into play.
Good price! I paid $14 for a pleasant walk around an all but empty course and got to practice some much needed iron work.
For the average golfer you can almost get away with only bringing a wedge and a putter. Only the 7th (166 yards) and possibly the 9th (120 Yards) may require a longer club.
The course is very clean. I don't remember there being and garbage cans at the tees so I had to carry and empty golf ball sleeve with me until my round was over.
Staff was courteous and hoped I would come back to the clubhouse after my round was over to have the luncheon special.
The course does take debit and credit cards but they were unable to get the transaction processed with my visit. Good thing I have cash.
The pro shop and dining lounge appear to be very clean and suits the course in every way. Only the basic golfing supplies are available but this was expected.
I was surprised to see a nice putting green near the clubhouse.
I did notice that the scorecard yardage differs from the signage on course. Which is correct? This always makes it difficult from the tee.
Use the scorecard to navigate the course.
I was very surprised to encounter this quality a course in the location where it is. When I pulled into the parking lot and saw the appearance of the course I just had to give it a try.
