    Wow! What a nice golf course. I had read a number of reviews on Cobble Beach and I haven't heard a negative word. Cobble Beach Golf Links was ranked #52 by ScoreGolf for 2010 and 2012 and would probably rank higher in my Top 100.
    I had the feeling that Cobble Beach was going to be flat and windy with limited trees and lots of fescue. I was wrong with most of my assumptions. Cobble Beach is not flat and would not be a recommended walk for someone in below average health. There were trees, more than I expected, but this is not a course cut through a forest. Yes, there was fescue and, yes, the course can be very windy.
    The practice area is very nice and I took advantage of the facilities; something I rarely do. Before my round started I was thinking how glad I was to use the practice green but after 3 putting the first hole followed by my first 4 putt of the season I was very concerned. Things did get better.
    There are many holes on this gem of a course that are memorable:
    Hole #7 is a long par 5 where not a lot of the hole is visible from the tee. Your 2nd shot should unveil a great hole layout.
    The 9th has Georgian Bay to your left with a pond on your right. From the clubhouse we thought this hole was very tight but it wasn't nearly as bad when it actually came to hole.
    Hole #10 is a gradual uphill climb to the pin so don't expect to get much roll on any shot.
    #12 is a tough par 5 that swings left around a large pond. The temptation of angling across the water to reach the green in two will be there for a long hitter.
    The short par 4 16th looks like driver is the club to use off the tee but you'll run the risk of having your ball disappear into a soft marshy area protecting the green. This hole is all downhill.
    The 17th is my favourite par 3 on the course. The backdrop of the Georgian Bay provides a gorgeous view and the wind can certainly play a part in your club selection.
    In my opinion, the Cobble Beach back 9 is much more difficult than the front.
    Cobble Beach is one of the nicer and tougher courses I've played since writing for Golf in Canada. The variety of holes and the condition of the course from tee to green brought only accolades from me.
    This year Cobble Beach has built some Play & Stay cottages on top of the suites already offered at the Cobble Beach Inn. The Nantucket-style Clubhouse (Inn) is host to the pro shop, spa, and Sweetwater Restaurant. The Sweetwater Restaurant is an area favourite for fine dining. Many other amenities are offered by the club.
    Cobble Beach Golf Links is one top notch course that I highly recommend.
