Just across the street from another course, Glen Eagle, both courses seem to look fairly different. Of course, as most ClubLink courses are, the course is maintained very well. As for the course itself, once you step out of the pro shop, you’re able to see some (17 & 18) of the types of holes you’re going to be battling throughout the round. However, some of the elevations changes you see on those holes is about as exciting as it gets from a variety perspective. Outside of the elevations, it’s primarily setup with a number of above-average length par 4′s, with many of them pretty straight forward. Also, with only 3 par 5′s, the course amounts to a par 71.
I can’t say the simplicity of the course translates into the same type of challenge when it comes to your game. The course can definitely hold it’s own if you can’t hit the ball too straight, specifically around the greens. The fairway bunkers seemed well placed, even for the longer hitters. All in all, it’s a solid track that would provide any golfer a good test.
To top off the season, I’m hoping to play National Pines later this month. I played this course last year and it was in great condition… it doesn’t help that the Canadian Tour’s Championship is held the week after though!
