    Good sized greens. Very slick. Great shape.
    Large practice green was indicative of greens on the course. Lots of practice pin selection to work on everything you could encounter on course.
    Pin location was identified by color of flag (red, white, blue).
    Some very tough pin placements can be had.
    Good fairways. Look ahead to see but whether you can use your driver. On a few holes you'll want to keep the big stick in the bag. Varying fairway widths can also determine your choice of club.
    Yardage markers are in mid-fairway at 100, 150, and 200 yards. Sprinkler head are painted white so they can be a bit confusing when in the 150 yard range.
    A little work is required to smooth the tees. We had to move our tees on a number of holes to get smooth footing.
    Double yardage signs at tees is a nice touch. More courses should do this.
    Yardage can be a bit tough to determine of a few par threes. Look around for markers.
    I believe the back to be tougher then the front and the toughness is at the beginning of the back 9. The course ends with pars of 3-4-3-4-3 so the finish is not long.
    Hole #18 is a nice par 3 to finish with as water can come in to play.
    Many of the holes seem to be in the 350 yard range from the whites.
    Course length from the tips is just over 6400 yards although from all appearances the course could be lengthened if required.
    Bunkers had no lips. Putting out of bunkers around the green is a possibility.
    My expectations of Smiths Falls was a bit high. The price was fair but for some reason I expected more.
    After 3:00pm on weekends is a bargain at a 2 for 1 rate,
    I had stopped at Smiths Falls a couple of years ago and had a look around. For some reason I thought the course had more elevation and would produce a greater challenge. Perhaps it was the tee blocks we played.
    There's lots of room to bail out on most holes.
    The par 5s are challenging, especially #7. A good tee shot will leave you with a daring run at the green over a pond.
    I don't remember seeing any buildings besides ones belonging to the course. Lots of trees.
    A creek wanders through the course. Water can come into play on about 7 holes.
    Beverage cart was around once on the front nine and put away as we passed to the 10th hole at around 3:30pm. Attendant was pleasant.
    Attendant in pro shop was efficient.
    The clubhouse could support a reasonably sized tournament. Building is well positioned to overlook the course.
    Pro Shop is a separate building and is well stocked with reasonable pricing.
    The scorecard is well laid out and contains a course overview.
    A bit of confusion can arise between holes #6, #9, and #17. There's a bit of a crossover so take a look at the scorecard. Signage is not well marked in this area but the rest of the course is fine.
    Ballwashers were located on every hole.
    Smiths Falls is a nice track and the layout shouldn't see any stray balls heading your way.
    I'll definitely take a look at the course again when I can take advantage of their bargain rates.
    I get the impression that Smiths Falls Golf & Country Club would have a very good social membership.
