beautiful Stanley Thompson design which has a lot of traditional
character to it. This course over looks over Georgian Bay and was
established in 1920.

This price range falls into the A rating category.
The difficulty for this course was fair. The are definately a few holes
that were challenging and a few that were easy. The wet conditions made
the course play longer although I don't think the course would play
short in dry conditions. A "B" rating is right for this
There are a lot of nice looking holes on this couse with so many mature
trees and the Georgian Bay background. The course had a great
traditional feel to it using a lot of tree lined fairways and
undulating and contoured fairways a mix of water, elevation and some
sand could be found as well. This course is deserving of an
"A" rating for scenery.
The green conditions were pretty good and with so much rain they
drained really well. They were smooth and true. The ball rolled pretty
well despite the wet conditions. I have to give the greens an A rating
as they were is decent condition.
Fairway conditions were very good. They may be were a little long and
soft due to the rain but the drainage was pretty good. I think an A
rating for these fairways is appropriate.
The clubhouse has full facilities and sports a cottage type look to it
but the look is definately fresher than some of the old club houses

The layout was a little choppy for this course at times. To get from
the 9th hole to the 10th hole you had to cut across two fairways
literally when people are playing.
All in all the front nine holes were terrifically carved into the land
with very subtle challenges such as the uneven terrain on the left side
of the first hole fairway and doglegging on the 6th and 7th holes. The
course rating for this area is a high B as some holes definately were
