    Greens on first 6 holes were poor. They still had winter kill and were very slow. Greens need to be cut shortly. For long putts it felt like you needed a cannon.
    Greens improved for the last 12 holes but the first 6 set the tone. Not much contour and quite a variance in size.
    Fairways were a big improvement from the greens. Yardage markers were very good.
    15th hole has very poor markings and is misleading from the tee. The hole is a sharp dogleg to the right and it looks like you can use a driver. A driver will put you through the fairway onto another hole. Ouch!
    Not bad size tees but some leveling is still required. Not always flat.
    Not very many bunkers and the few that lie around the course can be gotten out of by running the ball through. The biggest cause for concern are trees and the odd large rock. Some fairways can get a little too narrow.
    From the 9th hole (on the 18 hole course) to the Clubhouse is a 10 to 15 minutes walk.
    There are lots of other courses in the area that offer a better bang for the buck on the weekend.
    Not overly challenging from tee to green. The greens in their present state are not to my liking.
    Metcalfe was farmland that has been turned into a golf course. High voltage cable towers run through the back of the course.
    Mature trees are the highlight of the walk.
    The marshall was out and about often but I never had a chance to talk to him.
    We encountered the beverage cart a couple of times and it should have been very busy with the warm day we played.
    A halfway house was closed when we passed it around 11:30am.
    Pro Shop staff hastened us along as they were quite busy.
    Clubhouse is designed for casual tournaments and can handle a fair size event. Not spectacular in appearance but suitable for any informal occasion.
    At one point there are two signs within 30 feet of each other; one says 10 minutes to Clubhouse, the other says 15.
    Directions are clear where the next hole is but on a couple of holes you could get lost from tee to green.
    Large, unpaved parking lot can hold a large number of vehicles.
    A little too pricey for this quality of course on a weekend. The price is probably fair for a twilight round.
    Advertised tournaments at the Metcalfe Golf & Country Club have always seemed to be reasonably priced.
