If not hosting tournament play or closed for maintenance, you can sometimes select which side of the course you prefer to play. They have a 18 Lakes and Islands or 18 Bridges and Xena total 36 holes. Convenient drive from the City of Saskatoon. Rates are competitive with local competition. Course management has dealt with some not so well drained areas and improved them greatly over the years. They also have senior rates and other packages available through the weekdays. Will take some photos when I play again this week.
He would play this course again.
My friend just had her wedding reception here a week ago and other than the frigid temperature of the banquet room when sitting near a window, I don't have a single complaint. The facility is beautiful but not over the top, the buffet dinner contained high quality food, the servers did a great job and didn't seem rushed to clean up, and even the bartender I dealt with most often had a sense of play, not taking his role too seriously. It was great.
My friend partially chose to marry in Saskatoon because the cost of a wedding in Calgary can be outrageous, which is where she and her husband live, along with many of her wedding guests. The staff at The Willows did just as good of a job as any big city establishment and are likely friendlier. I'd highly recommend this venue for events.
