Pros: Mountainous course, that has a large variation of holes. Steep incline on hole 10, 15, 16, and steep decline on hole 18. Some holes are wide open like hole 5 and 25 and 26. Other holes like 2, 4, 11-14 are tight and technical with lots of trees and selected lines that limit where you can successively drive. I greatly enjoy every round out there. Some people prefer to play the first and last 9, skipping the middle holes, but they are the most challenging but also the most fun holes on the course.
Cons: Some people may think the length is to long on a hot summer day. The course amenities are limited to area trail maps, garbage cans, and signs directing you to the different holes. No bathrooms, no water fountain and no sunscreen dispenser, but which of those do you really need.
Other Thoughts: There are 3 spots to access the course. First is the one listed in the course description that you access it from Spruce Grove fields. Secondly you can access it from the Scandinave Spa located off of Mons Road (when you turn around the top corner of the road to the parking area of the spa, park close to the corner on the gravel). Thirdly, you can continue driving down Mons road and continue right and follow the road instead of driving into the Sabre industrial lot. After turning, continue straight and onto the gravel road up and over the dike/valley trail, continue through the parking area till you get to the foot bridge, and park there. Follow the trail after the foot bridge, up the hill and go right along the rough off piste trail (orange flagging tape), like 80 feet from the bridge. Follow the trail, go across the old fire road, then across the double wide bike/hike trail and you enter the course at hole 4.
