Course Review and Comments

The worst experience of our month trip. We are private members in Canada and found the service, course, value, etc. the worst we have ever seen in our many travels. The only thing they could have possibly been more rude would be to spit in our path.

In fact, we were leaving the Golf Course due to the poor behavior from their members to the caddy's, the poor state of the golf course and the rude service, when I was hit in the head by someone teeing off! We waited as a player was teeing off in our golf cart, waived to acknowledge our pass, then the next player did not even both to wait as we were driving on the path. It hit my forehead, ricochet off the cart and continued to hit another tree 10 feet away. I was rushed to Emergency and a CT scan, 4 hours later, after they sent a cleaning lady to hold ice on my head and watch that the CT scan came out negative, they left. The member who hit me (and knew) did not even stop to apologize. It's like the "Emperor's New Clothes". I can't believe anyone would be gullible enough to pay in excess of $2M US for a membership or $500 green fees as we did! We had to delay our flight by 48 hrs as Doctors would not allow me to fly due to possible swelling.

The General Manager's words were when he purposely did NOT acknowledge me but intentionally walked by the empty room to inspect curtains. "I know who you are. I was kept informed by my staff who took care of you. People get hit by golf balls all over the world each day!" There was not even an offer for a ride back to the Hotel and they did not want to refund any portion of the 18 holes which we played 9 until being hit. We were simply told by 5 staff members to turn off our cell phone as we were trying to make arrangements with our Doctors back home, change flights, and hotels, etc.

I was also told by the cleaning lady that held ice on my head all day that this happens often and a caddy lost 3 of his teeth recently, along with several other injuries of late.
