This hilly course has an abundance of wildlife living on and around its grounds. The course is located close to both Lake Ontario and Eastman Lake, providing some wonderful scenery. Water hazards come into play on three holes, plus the tee boxes and fast greens are elevated. New owners made several changes during 1997, including the shortening of a few holes and the addition of a water hazard on hole #9, a 414-yard, par 4.

|OK, This course is a great course. I allways have fun, and have shot very well. They have just completed a phenominal club house, and things are really starting to shape up. For the price, this is a great deal. The only problem, yes, the slow nature. Inexperienced golfers tend to eat up the clock, as they think they can shoot 50 shots a Hole. If they could improve this, I would give this course a better rating, but to take 6 hours for 9 holes is rediculous.|

|This course is an excellent example of Robert Trent Jones' genius. The course is not long, by modern standards, but many holes have elevation changes which make even the shortest of holes interesting and challenging. It winds through a beautiful, heavily wooded section if Durand - Eastman Park and in and out of two hugh revines which makes even your poorest round a joy. Some of the greens feature Jones' unique mounding that makes you think an elephant or two was buried there. The green speeds are not consistent for hole to hole, which makes for some interesting decisions on the pace of your putt, but considering the amount of play the course receives they are usually in pretty good shape for a public course. There are few long holes on the course, but the ones that are long are really difficult to to par. The only complaints I have about the course are; the speed of play (there are many not very accomplished golfers that tend to slow things down) and when the weather is wet the holes in the lower parts of the course stay pretty wet because there seems to be a problem with drainage. All things considered, this course is one of the best values for my golfing dollar that I have ever encountered.|
