Pros: Concrete tee pads and great signage. The course design is excellent with both right and left shots to challenge all. Manicured and absolutely beautiful with the Toronto skyline in the background.
Cons: Not much to complain about. No elevation change but not a big deal. This is a day excursion and not a jump out of the car and start playing. Time your visit to the ferry crossing then 10 min walk to the course. Plan your day accordingly
Other Thoughts: This is one of the prettiest courses I've played. Well maintained lawns and relatively easy to navigate, The course is long but not difficult for the newer player. Advanced will find lowering your score very challenging with the long tree lined fairways.

Pros: Beautiful, scenic course a short ferry ride from metro Toronto.

2 practice baskets about 70 feet from each other near 1 tee.

Friendly locals.

Course plays tough but fair from the white tees with most holes falling between 260 and 650 feet. difficult and demanding from the longs with lots of tight lines, tunnel shots and massive trees all over the course.

Locals play everything as a par 3 although there are 3 holes that are every bit a par 4 (6, 8 and 16 and 1 if you play the championship tee near the practice baskets)

2 sets of big asphalt tees on each pad

Grounds are maintained by the city and are always pristine.

People complain about the amount of non gofers on the course but if you can get over there any time that isn't a weekend in the summer the course is mostly deserted.

Great league that runs Wed night in the summer and Saturday morning all winter (yes ALL winter)

Be prepared to air out some big bombs and every shot in your bag will be needed.

Best view of the Toronto skyline anywhere.

Feels like a golf course with each hole being a separate entity.

Easy to spend a a whole day golfing and hanging out on the best parkland in the GTA.

Baskets are getting older but are still in great shape.
Cons: The cost of the ferry is a con although I never feel it isn't worth my money. Also if you are a local or are planning on going a couple times with some friends you can buy a 10 pack of tickets at a discount.

The land is flat.

Course can get busy in the summer with both holders and tourists.

If you can bring a bike as it is a bit of a hike to and from the ferry

Multiple pins aren't utilized. Typically it plays all long pins in the summer and all short pins in the winter.

Island residents aren't big fans of the course and go out of their way to sabotage work on the course. We tried to add a new amazing hole and the locals took the basket out of the ground and threw it into the water.
Other Thoughts: This is the first course I plays and it will always hold a special place in my heart. 4 years later and I am still honored to call it home.
