    Located 30 minutes north of Toronto in Aurora, St Andrew's Valley is built on some of the richest farm land in Ontario. The look can best be described as a large TPC type stadium course. Designed by noted golf course architect Rene Muylaert, the 'Valley' is laid out so there is a beautiful blend of sand, fairway and water on almost every hole. Good Shots are rewarded; and if you end up in trouble, you deserve it. The already rolling terrain is enhanced with additional mounding, so you never get the feeling you are playing beside another fairway.
    The course features five tee decks on each hole. This allows every golfer the chance to pick the right course yardage for their game. From the back tees it's "US Open" distance of over 7,300 yards, making it one of the highest rated courses in Canada... From the front it is just 5,600 yards of fun for the ladies. The 'Valley' is a par 72 course, with five threes and five fives over the 18 holes. Built to stringent USGA standards, this championship layout is in prime condition at any time of the season. For you the golfer this translates into lush lies on the fairways and putts that run true on the greens which are kept at a sensible speed.

    St. Andrew's Valley is one of the more difficult courses I've played in some time. Without the help of a member (of which we had one join us on the first tee) we each could have added 2 or 3 strokes to our game. Some of the hazards are not visible from the tee and it is rather easy to lose a ball if you select driver in these cases. A course layout on the scorecard would be a welcome addition.
    I took a gamble on the par 4 12th and tried for the green off the tee. Listed at 360 yards, my rangefinder stated 288 to the pin. My drive left me an 8 foot putt for eagle (I made birdie). I was pleased to hear our playing member say he had never seen anyone hit the green in 21 years.
    The greens can be a great challenge as some significant contours were encountered. Some unlikely pin placements saw 3 putting be a minimum from a few landing locations on a green.
    I had 4 3-putts on this day is an unusual occurrence for me.
    The fairways were in very good shape. The four tee boxes offer a wide range of total yardage ranging from 5,530 to a challenging 7,315 yards.
    St. Andrew's Valley has one of the nicest practice ranges I've ever seen.
    I was caught off guard by holes 13, 14 and 15 as they cross a road to another area of the course.
    The clubhouse was rather small and can only handle casual dining but there was a larger building that I didn't investigate its use.
    The pro shop was stocked with basic golf supplies and clothing.
    I found St. Andrew's Valley offered a great challenge and was very reasonably priced when compared to other courses in the Aurora area.
