Dragonfly is a natural looking 18-hole golf course with two nines that blend nicely but are slightly varied in look. The back nine holes are more like target golf where the front nine is a links style.
The fully irrigated fairways stroll beautifully through a hundred and seventy acres of diverse and dramatic rolling terrain that includes dense forest, turquoise ponds, exposed rock faces and spectacular views of the Ottawa Valley.

Some greens are extremely large. A good selection of contours and pin placement. Generally in good shape.
The front nine is fairly flat with good fairway width. The back nine has nice rolling hills but this makes it a tough walk. For many it will be walk the front and drive the back.
Yardage markers are clear and visible.
Almost all tees were in rough shape. It was tough to find an area that wasn't pitted.
Yardage signs at tees were not always positioned well (depending on the tee you were hitting from). The scorecard had no layout of the course so I wasn't aware of a few hazards. This probably cost me a couple of lost balls.
An interesting design. The front nine will build your confidence. The back nine gets tougher where even hitting a fairway can see your ball end up in the rough with a sideways bounce off a mound.
Bunkers were visible but didn't come into play with my game. A few gullies and marshy areas.
18th hole is a nice elevated par 3. 15th has a monstrously deep green.
The golf was reasonably priced.
Golf carts were not reasonably priced.
Pricing for drinks and snacks appear to be rounded off to the nearest dollar and were higher than average. My wife made a purchase which was run through the cash in the clubhouse and the server rounded the figure up to the nearest dollar taking an instant 'tip'. I don't care who or where you are but this is a big "no-no".
Dragonfly became very challenging on the back nine. I'm normally a very straight hitter off the tee and still managed to lose a few balls. Partly because of lack of knowledge of the course design and partly from bad bounces.
A nice country setting with a nice country atmosphere. No tall buildings or houses are visible from any hole on the course. A "getaway from it all" type place.
The beverage cart was around frequently and the courses was very busy. Quite often we had to wait to tee off and it didn't appear that any one was playing slow.
Clubhouse staff always asked to serve but appeared a bit more interested in watching the baseball game on the TV.
A plain clubhouse that's designed for a quick hot dog and beer.
Pro Shop has a few necessities but isn't abundant with selection.
The clubhouse is well off the road.
My wife still can't get over her disappointed with the pricing of food...
At least 3 ball washers were missing from the course (perhaps vandals?).
Confusing paths when going to the 9th hole. There appears to be 3 possible routes.
The course layout needs to be added to the scorecard.
This is my first time playing Dragonfly Golf Links. I'm willing to take the challenge again but will be visiting for golf only.
