    The conditions of the greens were quite good, but they needed to be cut down a bit as I found them to be a bit slow. Nice contours that weren't too difficult to read. No multi-level greens to worry about. The greens did vary in size from small to medium. They just need a cut as I think they might of ran at a 8 to 9 maximum.
    Is it just me or did the fairways run uphill? Wow, were they tough. Fairways were not in the best condition considering we're at the end of June. They could have also used a trim.
    People should learn to fix their divots.
    Fairways were nice and wide with a lot tough uphill shots.
    The yardage sign were nice and very informative, but the tee boxes themselves needed some work. The were pretty rough considering how nice this course is.
    A bit of time should be spent on the par 3 tee boxes, they were the worst of all.
    Wow, how beautiful is that view? Add in the elevation changes, lots of hazards and take in consideration that the course runs through the mountains and a stones throw away from the Bras D'or Lake. There's a lot of target golf type shots that you have to think about before teeing off. If you just grip it and rip it it could cost you.
    $59 to golf at peak times, or $69 per person to golf and stay at the resort. Now that's worth it. It's a beautiful resort that overlooks the lake.
    The course is almost too tough, but the view is worth it. As I mentioned before, everything seems to shoot uphill and because of the wind and the cool weather, I think you lose 10 to 15 yards per iron. Add the uphill fairways and you're coming up short on almost every shot. It's one tough cookie!
    The scenery is where Dundee shines and shines and shines. I found myself stopping many times throughout my round taking pictures of the view. Check out our photo slide show.
    Everyone seemed to be very nice and more than helpful to assist with course information or even just to stop and take your picture. Thank you course marshal. We didn't see the beverage cart at all this day, but I thinks its because of the weather; windy and chilly.
    They just opened their brand new clubhouse last year and, let me tell you, it looks amazing. There's a giant balcony/veranda that stretches from one end to the other in front of the clubhouse, which overlooks the 18th hole. We didn't have a chance to go inside but if it looks as good inside as it did outside, I'm sure its amazing as well.
    Weather...umm, a little cold and a little windy. We were told it's not normal for this time of year.
    They had ball washers at every hole with paved cart paths throughout. Today was "cart path only golf" and that made it slow playing.
    I lost 2 balls on one hole and that was keeping it fairly straight. It's tough. There was an older couple playing in front of us who were walking the course, and carrying their clubs. Unbelievable.
    Try Dundee! I don't think you'll be disappointed. The view alone is worth it.

    Greens were soft and slow. After playing Northumberland Links this was a tough adjustment. They can be difficult to read because of elevation changes to the landscape around the holes. Most greens were medium to large in size.
    The 150 was a standing marker while 200 and 100 were ground level markers. An honest fairway width in good condition despite the elevation of the course.
    Par 3s had many divots and needed filling a little more frequently.
    Most tees were average width and size. Some blind tee shots where knowledge of the course would certainly be an asset. Two tees featured mounted mirrors to help see when the fairway was clear.
    Dundee is a tough, fun course to play. There are lots of slopes, uphill climbs, and downhill drives. A few ponds are visible but rarely enter play. Bunkers are found on every hole except for #13.
    When we were there a great deal could be had at the Dundee Resort. For $69 per person you could play a round of golf with cart and your lodging. A real bargain. Regular rates are around $50 and still a bargain.
    The course plays a lot longer then the yardage provided on the scorecard. Uphill par 4s were very hard to reach in two even when they were sub 400 yards in distance. I much preferred the downhill holes but even these were tough. Wind can certainly play a major factor and it seemed to change direction frequently on the same hole.
    It's tough to beat the scenery. The view of the Bras D'or Lake can be breathtaking. Beautiful elevation changes throughout the course of play.
    The marshal made frequent stops and was most helpful.
    No beverage cart was seen and we could have used one.
    Newly opened last year, the clubhouse has an outside deck that overlooks the 18th. The clubhouse sits far enough back that viewing is excellent yet it's out of range and shouldn't add to finishing hole nerves.
    I'd like to see carting mandatory become mandatory at Dundee. Walkers can greatly slow carters down on this course.
    The scorecard is excellent.
    I'm sure I would have enjoyed Dundee much more on a sunny day and with a cold drink. We played on a cool, late June day with heavy cloud cover.
    Dundee Resort is most definitely a recommended play and a stay at the resort is also highly recommended.
