Hunter's Creek is an established nine hole, par 32, executive golf course composed of four par 3's and five par 4's. Hunter's Creek is located in a picturesque, quiet country setting. Fairways are carved through a maple forest with formidable water hazards and challenging terrain. With a short layout and few bunkers, this course may initially appear simple, but the obstacles to par begin immediately. Golfers must work the ball past trees on every hole. A visit to the woods generally results in an unplayable lie. Water comes into play on four holes. Narrow fairways and wooded rough lead to small well manicured greens. To score well at Hunter's Creek players need straight drives and a precise short game.

Although small, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the green at Hunter's Creek. Hitting them was tough. The pin location wasn't identified by colour, nor do they need to be.
The fairways were quite narrow but the rough wasn't much longer so there was a bit more forgiveness than expected.
Tees were quite wide and offered some variation for approach. Yardage signs were at each tee but were on the smallish side. The greens were always visible from the tee.
Hunter's Creek is a shorter 9 hole course reaching approximately 2,000 yards from the tips with only a handful of small bunkers (with only 3 really being in play). A small pond on #7 will come into play on a poor tee shot or possibly for short hitters.
The course is flat and a very pleasant walk.
#4/13 has a split fairway that offers two completely different approaches to the green.
Hunter's Creek is priced fairly for what it has to offer. The course is well-maintained and is most likely the course of preference for cottagers in the area.
With no par 5s and short par 4s, Hunter's Creek won't put up much of a challenge for a single-digit handicapper.
I'm sure the laneway to the course is a bit of work to maintain in the winter. The course is surrounded by trees and offers a serene setting. Quite relaxing in every sense of the word.
The lady in the pro shop was courteous and processed my round efficiently.
A gentleman chatted to me after my round and commented on my John Daly shorts (which are normal checkered shorts by my standards). Perhaps golfer's at Hunter's Creek are a bit more reserved.
The clubhouse was perfect for the location. I wasn't expecting anything quite this nice. Ample parking was available.
The scorecard could do with a little work.
The course is very easy to navigate.
Hunter's Creek is ideal for a quick round or to practice your game. The short par 4s could create a bit of a log jam on a busy day.
A great family/seniors course!
