    A fresh new challenge awaits you at Cloverdale Links Golf Course. Located on Highway 31, south of Ottawa and north of the 401, Cloverdale Links is easily accessible to all who enjoy an exciting round of golf. This impressive 18 facility opened its first nine holes in July 1996 to rave reviews from golfers and the media. The second nine opened in July of 1998 and boasts many of the same great traits as the first nine with the addition of more water and some unique designs that will excite everyone who tees it up at Cloverdale Links.
    Cloverdale Links Golf Course is truly a links style golf course. Very reminiscent of the Scottish links with wide fairways and large greens, this course is certainly a joy for golfers of varying skill levels.
    The wind at the Links can be most unpredictable, a factor that you quickly learn to respect when selecting the proper club. The natural setting of Cloverdale Links allows for beautiful rolling fairways with slight undulations. Subtle changes in elevation are made possible by the classic mounding of renowned architect Graham Cooke. Cooke makes very good use of the property provided and has increased the challenge by adding a number of lakes to the course. Cooke has designed many courses in Eastern Ontario Region including the Patterson’s other fine facilities, Emerald Links Golf & Country Club and Anderson Links Golf & Country Club.
    The Patterson family welcomes you to enjoy the challenges of Cloverdale Links. You will find our staff to be among the most courteous, eager to ensure your experience with us is an enjoyable one.

    It's been a couple of years since I last played Cloverdale Links and nothing has really changed. This year I did notice that lots were being sold around the property to start a new housing development but I have no idea where the housing will go or the type.
    It's early in the golf season and the course was in fair condition. Traditionally Cloverdale Links, Anderson Links, and Emerald Links (same owner) have very good greens while the remainder of the course doesn't mathc the quality of the greens but that's fine in my books.
    After now golfing a number of years and seeing my game improve I now find the Cloverdale Links course to be extremely easy. There is lots of room to spray your ball around and hazards can be easliy avoided as there is always a side to bail.

    The best greens I've played on to this point of the season. In most cases they ran true and produced no complaints from our foursome.
    Fairways still need work to clear patches of winter kill.
    Tees are uneven at times. Location should be moved around a little more regular.
    Course is reasonably wide open, flat, with very few areas to lose a ball besides the holes that border the outer fence. The course does sport a few water hazards that can swallow the odd stray ball (as they did on this day).
    The first hole is a nice challenge.
    If you visit on a Wednesday evening the price can't be matched.
    A great place to learn the game.
    Nothing glamorous for scenery.
    Staff is always cheery and courteous.
    Although functional, the clubhouse doesn't offer much more than a place to pay and have a quick beer.
    Wind can be a major factor as this is a true links style course. The course is easy to navigate. No cart required.
    Cloverdale Links offers a great deal for their Men's and Ladies' Night (Wednesdays) throughout the golf season. $27.50 gets you golf and cart, plus a meal. Their Men's and Ladies' Night is open to the public and their is no fee to join.
    The course never appears to be overly crowded and we completed our round in 3 1/2 hours.

    Greens are nice and big.
    Fairways have rolling mounds, but no big hills.
    Average size tees and condition.
    Typical links course. fairly flat.
    Great prices, with Wednesday night special for $30. Golf, cart, and dinner after 4pm.
    Some water here and there, but very open.
    Used to be farmland I think. Nothing but open fields.
    Staff is always friendly and helpful. Nice home cooking.
    A recycled farm house for a clubhouse which definitely needs improving.
    Decent course to let it rip on for a great price. But if your looking for something harder, play the sister course at Emerald that one I love.
