    One green in rough shape. A few small greens as well. One green was under repair for drainage on the back and much dirt was being moved about. However, we were warned of this before we teed off.
    Flat fairways, but in nice shape. I can see why so many members use electric pull carts. Patches of burnt grass but I'd chalk this up to the high temperature for the month of June.
    For a course built in the city you would think you're in the country. I only remember one hole where I saw houses.
    The 18th hole looked lovely from the tee with it's multiple bunkers.
    A good course but relatively pricey for non-members. Membership appears strong.
    Course played tougher then it looked but this could be due to the fact that we were playing our second 18 of the day.
    Kawartha was clean and well groomed. I imagine when the course was build there was nothing around it. With the surrounding land now developed into housing you wouldn't know it.
    It took a little while to get served as the attendant was joking with a member. A serving station was out on the course with a regular beverage cart visible.
    The clubhouse is not the strong point of the course. The entrance to the course from the road could easily be missed.
    We had a little difficulty finding a hole or two. A few more signs would help. Carts were on short order but the hot weather probably had a lot to do with it.
    A Stanley Thompson design that holds its age well. The course has been around for over half a century.
    One green was under repair on the back and much dirt was moved about. We were warned of this before we teed off.

    Nice and fast greens, but some were under repair at the time.
    Nice fairways but kind of flat. Nothing crazy.
    A few issues with the tees, but probably because of the heat and all.
    Pretty nice course design considering it's right in the middle of the city of Peterborough.
    Pricey, but still worth playing.
    Nothing too hard, although it's was hard to stick to the greens which meant you had to chip on a lot.
    Pretty cool scenery considering your in the city.
    Staff were busy with members, and we were non-members...you figure it out.
    I enjoyed the history there... fairly old course. Lost are way here and there, but it was our first time.
    It was fun, tough to stay on my game as it was my second 18 of the day. Still nice to play.
