    Large greens in exceptional shape. A pleasure to play!
    Flag colour identifies pin position.
    The condition of the front nine fairways is much better than the back. The back nine had quite a few "ground under repair" areas or regions where the grass hasn't taken hold.
    Nice yardage plates for 100, 150, and 200 yards although I'm not sure why the plates are green in colour. It would make more sense to have them coloured then standard red, white, and blue. Stakes are also visible at the side of fairways.
    Fairways are quite forgiving.
    Five tee boxes ranging from 5784 to a massive 7065 yards.
    Tees in very good shape with lots of area to change your angle of approach.
    Signage is on a black post near the back tees which is a bit difficult to read unless you're quite close.
    The course is well designed with lots of nice bunkering throughout but I found they rarely came into play off the tee. The bunkers were either too far or easily cleared for my driving distance.
    eQuinelle is relatively flat and plays through a housing development. Even with some visible housing I can't think of a location where there was even a remote chance of hitting near a yard.
    eQuinelle has the makings of a premiere course in the Ottawa area. As the course matures (it's only been open a year) this course will be worth every penny.
    I'll be making a regular eQuinelle a regular stop.
    The starter indicated that scoring should be done on the first six holes. I'm sure this was opposite for me. I did notice that the fairways tightened a bit after the first six holes.
    You'll need to putt well to score here.
    The view of almost every hole looks picturesque from the tee. The only backdrop near a green that I didn't like was on hole #9 which is spoiled by uninteresting housing.
    I am concerned that future development may spoil the course landscape.
    It seemed like there was staff on every whether it be repairing or cutting grass.
    Staff was friendly and efficient.
    With all the development that was going on in the area I expected a bit more than a trailer-type clubhouse.
    The parking lot is a good size but unpaved at present.
    Electric carts seemed minimal but perhaps they were located elsewhere.
    eQuinelle had superior push carts for rental.
    Basic food stuffs can be bought at the clubhouse.
    No beverage cart was visible.
    Follow the cart path and you can't get lost.
    Ball washers available on every hole. There was even a club washer on hole #13.
    eQuinelle has one of the poorest scorecards I have seen in a long time. The scoring area is too small and needs to be turned 90°. Plus, I often take notes on blank areas of a card this one is all black.
    Washrooms on holes #5 and #16.
    eQuinelle is a very walkable course.
    With the current clubhouse I'm sure eQuinelle will be missing out on a few tournaments but perhaps that's not a concern at this time.
    As improvements are made and the course matures, eQuinelle will most likely be an elite course.
