Course Review and Comments
Our course is a picturesque,9-hole test of golf, cut from the Canadian Shield which offers hills, rock, mainly coniferous forestation (there is some poplar, birch and oak), streams and a pond.
On the score card our physical yardage may come in at under 3000 yards but the adjusted yardage, due to doglegs and forced lay ups is near 3150 yards. In terms of course design, our track can best be described as a combination of the penal and strategic styles of golf course design. The course is still a work in progress, with work and upgrades to existing bridges and cart paths ongoing and the construction of more bunkers slated for the future.
There have been scores of 62,63 and 64 fired over 18 holes at par 70 during everyday play and a score of 29 is believed to be the lowest 9 hole score but under tournament conditions, with the course set up sternly, the official course records are 31 for 9 holes and 67 for 18 holes.
I have spent nearly 50 years enjoying and competing on this fine, small-town Northwestern Ontario course and in 2008, after gaining Teaching Professional status, am proud to be its' first resident Club Professional. I welcome everyone to our Club and look forward to seeing new faces tee it up here.
