Saugeen Golf Club is a cottage country golf
course that doesn't provide a lot of difficulty. Try to play the
Sunrise and Legacy courses. The Legacy course was designed by Stanley
Saugeen's prime time rate is $62 which does include golf range but not
a golf cart. This price range falls into the A rating category.
The difficulty for this course was
too easy. A mid handicapper can play from the tips and
easily break 90. The length and reasonably flat greens make this course
pretty simple to play. A "C" rating is right for this area.
There are some nice looking holes on this course here and there. The
Sunrise course I feel is definately the most scenic of the courses and
Sunset being the least scenic. The course uses a mix of trees, water
and some sand to decorate the course but some holes are quite
plain. This course is deserving of a B rating for scenery.
The green conditions were pretty good. They were smooth but maybe a
little too long. I have to give the greens an A rating as they were is
Fairway conditions were good but a little long and soft. I think a B
rating for these fairways is appropriate.
The clubhouse has full facilities however they are very old and dated.
Remember Caddyshack? I think a B rating is appropriate.
The layout was pretty up and down for these courses. There was a lot of
cutting across other holes to get from one tee box to the next. A few
hokey holes and a very flat, straight course at times too. On
the up side, there were also a few nicely shaped holes such as 2nd
& 3rd holes on Sunrise and the 5th at Legacy. The course rating
for this area is a C although I may be a little harsh here - what
do you think?
