    A much used course where the greens are kept in decent shape. Not a lot of contours or varying shape.
    150 markers were located on one side of the fairway. Yardages were sometime difficult to determine as markers were not easily visible.
    Fairways in good shape.
    Worn tees, but not overly so for such a busy course.
    Three sets of tees with the longest yardage being just over 6100 yards.
    Quite a bit of backtracking to the next tee so stay alert.
    Hole #1 has one of the most difficult tee shots to start a round. Not much room for error left or right so if you come away with a par you're well on your way to a decent round.
    Hole #10 also doesn't allow much room for error. Thank goodness it's a par 3.
    A bit of water, not much sand, and the course is flat. An easy walk.
    Price is very reasonable for the Niagara Falls area. Extremely good value and a recommended location for holding a tournament.
    Each 9 starts out tough but then seems to sag toward the end. A few par 4s are reachable from the tee with a little risk.
    Not a difficult track.
    Nothing extra to see. You're here to play golf.
    Starter (Bob) did an exceptional job at handling a tournament as well as fixing our tee-off.
    Clubhouse Manager (Toni Golfi) was always on the move but did have a brief chance to stop and chat (although I could see her legs were ready to move to the next task on hand).
    Designed nicely to accommodate tournaments and others at the same time (multiple rooms and tents). Meals (and drinks) were very reasonably priced and tasty.
    Niagara Falls Golf Club offers onsite accommodations (not many course do) so if you want to get away with a group everything can be handled with one phone call.
    Keep an eye on you scorecard as you can make the wrong assumption with where the next hole is.
    Probably one of the few courses in Canada that could be open every day of the year (weather permitting).
    This club is in my price range and skill level so if I was living in the Niagara region I'd probably be a bit of a regular.

    The ball roll was true on the greens with average speed. The greens were on the small size but reasonable. This course gets a lot of tournament play.
    The fairways were better than the greens and were well marked.
    The tee-off areas were average at best. The large amount of play on the course made it difficult at times to find a good spot to hit from.
    Overall the design of the course was good. Several of the par 4s were very short and therefore less challenging. Several of the holes required us to go back towards people hitting into greens which felt fairly dangerous.
    At $40 for a weekend rate this course is excellent value and is a highly recommend play for tournaments and large groups of friends looking for casual golf.
    Short par fours and fives make this course a relatively easy course to score well on.
    The course has done a good job of maturing in an area that is dominated by farmers fields. The course was well built and designed to make maximum use of the topography available.
    The Marshall was very good and the clubhouse and restaurant staff were very nice and helpful.
    A great clubhouse layout for tournaments. Pro shop was very sparse but the food selection and quality was excellent.
    The food in the clubhouse was excellent. The range is very poor and has clearly been neglected (or is just being built which I hope is the case).
    A good course that is excellent for tournaments. At $40 its excellent value.

    Greens were quite small and relatively smooth. There were very few large contours. Pin placements were fair with a mix of difficulties in pin locations.
    Most fairways were reasonably wide and even when missed most shots could be recovered without too much difficulty. The grass was in need of cutting. There werenít many yardage markers except for the ones at 150 yards out.
    Tee boxes were not overly large but most were in good condition. Some of the back tees were in rough shape.
    The layout of the course was a little tight in some places (i.e. proximity of tees to the previous greens). The variety of holes was good. Overall the course was quite flat.
    The value was good when compared to the cost of other courses in the area.
    Overall, this course was not that difficult, although there were a couple of exceptions that were very challenging (especially hole #1).
    The course was well-trimmed. Inside the course boundaries was quite fair, but if you went beyond the boundaries your ball was lost.
    Very friendly and courteous staff. Since we played very early in the day, there was no beverage cart. This may have been intentional as there was a scramble tournament being played at the same time as we were playing.
    The clubhouse and restaurant were nice. There was a large tent outside which was used for the tournament while we were there. There was plenty of room to park in the large lot.
    Many holes required you to come back alongside a fairway you had just played to get to the next tee. This seemed unnecessarily dangerous. The markings to the next tee were sometimes weak and the cart paths frequently crossing didnít help. The first cut of rough was in need of cutting when we played.
    This is a reasonable course for the average golfer. A low handicapper would find it a little on the short side.
