Our Smiths Falls golf course is conveniently located 7km south of town. An exciting shot maker's golf course awaits you!
Lombard Glen is an 18-hole, semi-private Smiths Falls golf course which is beautifully designed by Golf Course Architect, David L. Moote, B.A. We feature challenging water hazards on nine different holes, contoured tree lined fairways and large bent grass greens. Golfers are offered a well designed landing area off the tee or they can choose the "risk reward" drive. Lombard Glen is a course that is fair, challenging and continually interesting to play for any level of golfer.

The greens appeared to be in very good shape. I did find a few putts dipped on me and I tried a few of these again. Perhaps the greens needed to be rolled as the second putt normally brought a truer roll (or did I gag?).
Holes 9 and 18 share the largest putting surface I have ever seen.
Lombard Glen is tight. Straying from the fairway is an easy thing to do. You'll require all the clubs in you bag.
I wasn't used to seeing dandelions on fairways; which is not a bad thing. Too many of the city courses pour the weed killer on. You do however mistake that odd white capped dandelion for a ball.
Tee boxes were large in depth so distances of holes can vary. It was nice to have the tee boxes line up with where you should be hitting the ball. So many course have crooked boxes.
I challenge anyone to get back to back pars on 15 and 16. The par 5 15th require 2 excellent first shots and you will still be left with a strong iron to a narrow, water protected green.
The signature 16th is surrounded nicely by trees but has a large green and a massive dip toward the front. Pin placement one this hole can produce a real challenge.
Not a lot of elevation but a great layout and use of surroundings.
A fun course to play. I'll come back to Lombard Glen in the near future. Too bad it's just a little too far for me to play on a week day.
For the challenge, I'll be back.
A good mix of holes and the course really makes you think. Although a little short in length (it plays a par 70), big hitter will still find this course a challenge.
Much of the course feels to have just the right amount of everything. Not too many trees but enough to cause a problem. A few nice houses decorate the course but not to the point of feeling like your in a subdivision.
A few scenic locations give you a glorious view of a number of holes.
The beverage cart was around regularly and prices were reasonable. Staff provided excellent tips and suggestions.
Nice to see a club that reads their email regularly as well. Too many clubs have web sites that have dead email links and don't respond to messages.
Clubhouse is a little tough to evaluate as we didn't go inside. We were a little pressed for time.
Clubhouse didn't appear overly large but it looked to serve its purpose.
Cart paths were very visible with white crushed stone. Ball washer were well positioned and signage was visible. A sign to the 10th hole would be nice.
As far as the course layout goes we wouldn't change a thing. We did discuss switching holes 1 and 10. I don't think this would cut down the length of overall walking but it would shorten the walk between holes 10 and 11.
Lombard Glen was a pleasant surprise. From the drive by you would think it's just another course and to that you would be mistaken.
