    Meadows is in very good shape. Their greens are back to Meadows speeds however, much slower than they were a month ago.
    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    Not near as slow as the Meadows of old (velcro greens ),but a bit hairier than a few weeks ago
    At the end of the day ... It gets dark

    Greens have always been slow (high cut), and they have little to no water for irrigation on the course... In my opinion....

    I know, the green speeds were awesome at the beginning of the year, it was great...now they are slower, practice green is much faster than the actual greens... still in good shape...

    I played Sorcier yesterday for the 1st time this year.

    It was drizzling all morning so there was moisture on the greens.

    These were the slowest greens I have ever played on.

    The tee boxes are hard as rocks and full of divot holes making it difficult to find a level spot to hit from.

    It is a fun course though.

    Kind of a shame the greens are so slow.

    Has anyone played Mont Ste. Marie lately?

    I haven't played there for years but I always liked that course.

    Played Mont St. Marie on Saturday and the course was in great shape but the greens are very slow which is typical for them but still excellent condition.

    Played Cascades yesterday and greens are excellent with plenty of speed. They are also re-sodding several white tee boxes which is great news and badly needed. They moved the white blocks closer to the blues and a couple to the reds which adds some different looks and yardages.

    As usual, Nation is in immaculate condition tee to green. A few holes are still recovering from the small punch but they are still rolling very nice though. Checking in is now at the bar (door at the parking lot) as they are fixing up the pro shop I think. Starting hole is #7 for now.

    Played Montebello and was dissapointed. First off, bunkers, rocks and more rocks. Fairways where just okey, greens where just okey, not fast enough to my liking. Overall condition of cart pats is simply not up to par for a course that charges 90.00+ right now. A lot of the steps going up to tee boxes would need attention. I wont be going back and its too bad cause it used to be one of our favs.

    Super sad. We played last year and it was horrible. The whole resort needs to be sold to someone who will give it some love.

    Summerheights is one of my favorites these days.

    Played Meadows yesterday. Had only played there once close to the season opener.

    It was in great shape with the best greens I have played this year. Early Spring it wasn't very nice, now it's great.

    dbleder would recommend the original 18. This is the one you see when driving in not the one that is near the 401. I think it is hole number 11 a long par 3 we always play it as a two putt green because green as to much slope like the old Nation 16. Good luck and post a review.

    Played Summerheight a few times---well worth the drive at todays prices for other courses. Makes you really wonder where all the $$$ is going on these 80.00 and 90.00 courses ?????? I'll drive to the country anytime
    Does the 2nd hole-n-one come easier ?

    I always play MacLennan. Supposed to be a bit more difficult. The other 18 is probably also very nice.

    Played Loch March this morning. Course is in good shape from tee to green. Bunkers are bare and mainly rocks but the bugs! It was unplayable with the bugs. I think we played in about 3 hours walking and thatís because we just didnít care about golf anymore. Thought weíd need blood transfusions at the end of the round. Iíve never see bugs like that on a golf course.

    Thanks buddy for letting us know about the bugs. Will stay clear until later on in the year.

    Played Smugglers on Wednesday, course was mint and greens were super fast. We were in a tournament, so they were cut and maybe rolled that morning.

    The change in management at Stittsville and Lombard has produced the best playing conditions I've ever seen at these two courses...
    Defiantly the best in 10+ years

    Renfrew is in fantastic shape. Greens are very fast, rough is thick and punishing. Some tee boxes on the white tee blocks a bit spotty, but no issues from the back tees. Great pace of play as well .
