Pros: Compared with area courses, the Robert Burnaby course has quite a bit to boast about. It is one of the few courses which can challenge players who are a bit more experienced and it has great potential as a safari or practice course.

Penalizing rough: The rough isn't really very thorny or so thick that you can't even get in, but it has enough teeth to adequately penalize shots that aren't thrown properly. You want to be on the fairways and you should be, because the holes are so short. If you miss, though, at least you'll have to really work to save a par.

Variety: Because of the hillsides and tree cover, you'll need a more varied bag of shots than say, Mundy. The distances aren't all that long but the uphill holes and those with low ceiling shots add a bit of additional technical challenge.

Safari Potential: The rolling hills and not too dense tree coverage makes for a nice safari practice course. I could definitely see taking a basket or two out here to add a little variety to the course on a summer afternoon.
Cons: Navigation: Finding your way around this park can be quite challenging. When we entered the park, we parked in the incorrect parking lot but even from there and throughout our round, we found ourselves lost at several points with no available signage or numbering to help lead the way. There are several holes that look to be either newly removed or newly installed and it is very difficult to tell if the tee you are standing at actually leads to a basket or if it is possibly just a temporary hole. Likewise, we saw several homemade-looking baskets which had no tee's nearby.

Repetitiveness: The course overall makes great use of the hillsides at this park but you'll find that you will likely be playing several uphill holes in a row and then several downhill shots. Just a consequence of the available land rather than a fault of the current design but it is less than ideal.
Other Thoughts: Overall, Robert Burnaby is definitely worth a play and besides the Langley course, might be the best in the area for players looking for a bit more challenge. The hole lengths might be short, but there are both fairway obstacles and serious rough to contend with - these are often not available at other nearby venues.

Pros: Great elevation changes.
Beautiful scenery
Cons: Don't go when it rains.
No flats, only hills.
Tee pad could use some help
Only 9 holes
Other Thoughts: The day I went the course was so wet it was unusable. I was with newbies so they won't be playing ever again, too bad.
