Had played this course a couple times in the past and was never a fan. But after today will NEVER go back. WARNING - The photos uploaded on the side are FAKE nowhere does the course / layout look like that. Walking up to the pro shop noticed the flag out on the 9th and the green completely destroyed. Pro shop attendant lied to my face when I asked if work was being done that day on the greens and said "just 1 or 2 holes". Blatant liar as every single green was in absolute pitiful shape, the WORST Aeration job I have EVER seen (pictured below). on top of that the fairways were littered in leafs and debris, and hard as a rock. Course grass not cut properly and impossible to find a ball. Every time you hit the fairway dirt flew like it landed in a bunker or something. And just when you think it couldn’t get worse, there are HUGE tree roots everywhere, lying just below the surface INCLUDING the middle of the fairways. At best you will hurt your wrist/hands just once, but more likely multiple times or completely break it before the back nine especially if you have any competency hitting a ball (which includes taking a small divot).

He would not play this course again.

Greens were in excellent shape, however, the fairways were not. Fairways were very patchy. Have played here many times and for the money, the course is well worth a visit.

I play this course at least once per year. But this is the worst I have ever seen this course.

prepare for a 5hr round. Slow play and no marshalls to speed it up. Greens fast and hard. Fairways rough in spots and hard.,

Holy Challenge!!!!!!!

You have to do yourself a favor and come more than once. Like a lot of Stanley Thompson courses, which this is not, there are very few flat spots on the course.
With INCREDIBLE GREENS, this course is a challenge for any and everybody. The staff was extremely accommodating and even lent me his pair of shoes that I had forgotten at home, THANK YOU FABIAN.
The beverage cart staff were quick and very pleasant to deal with, having the remote debit machine made life easier for purchases.
The club house was quaint and the food was tasty and for the portion, GREAT VALUE.
Remember your landing zones and pay attention to the contours of the fairways. The greens were running at about a 12 this day. The weather was fair but HOT and most of the courses I have played this year are dry and burnt. When this course recovers from this years drought, IT WILL BE FANTASTIC!!!!

All in all......Bang for buck The best course in the Bomanville area BY FAR.
GO PLAY IT!!!!!!!!
