    Buckingham was in good condition. Greens still have some cut marks from last fall but rolled well. Fairways where also good, not much winter kill. Great day and well organized, no issues.Over 325 players !!!

    As others have pointed out, Casselview's greens are in good shape. Their cup system is great, with a lever that your can use your foot/putter to retrieve the ball. Fairways on 1 and 10 were in tough shape and quite wet when I played (8:00 am). Else than that, probably one of the best deals at this point in the year. Round took 3h40 minutes so really can't complain... aside from my short game that seems to have disappeared over the winter.

    I'll second this, just a roll and double cut on the greens away from spectacular.

    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    Equinelle is awesome. Front 9 greens a little slow. Back 9 was better.

    Mapleview , 3 players w/ carts , 3 hours 20 minute round teed off at 10:30. Course is a bit dry believe it or not , greens are on the slow side as most are at this time of year. Always a pleasure to play this course , laid back valley golf. The marshall did a nice job today keeping the pace moving. Will go back

    Oaks of Cobden was in a bit of rough shape.
    Greens have quite a bit of damage from the winter, fairways were ok , some areas had a lot of damage from critters digging for grubs .
    But for $33 walking on a Saturday, it's still a good day out
    At the end of the day ... It gets dark

    I guess a colored ball would be out of the question.

    Emerald Links South
    7.5/10

    Had a great time, overall the conditions were good for this time of year. Some tee boxes could use some love.

    Well organized at the check-in tent. You are allowed to do chipping/putting at the practice green after checking in. Once the tee is ready, they will call your group to the tee off area.


    Course (18) has a few dead spots on 4-5 fairways, they will need some rain to grow. Other than that it is very playable. Greens are yellowish and thin but roll at a good pace. It's kinda hard to see the break with the yellow part.


    Overall, it's a very relaxing walk. The group behind (cart) caught up to us on 1-2 holes but respectfully stayed on a distance away.

    Not sure what is the protocol for playing through

    They also have washing sink with pedal pump and soap/sanitizer on a few holes. Very good to wash your hands and balls if you need to.

    In this heat, it's always good to have an option to wash your balls

    Not sure if you can't get your balls over the sink since it has been in the bag a while and dropped with age

    Hawkesbury , well organized check-in , 4 players riding 3.5 hours to play , teed off @ 11:30.
    Fairways are not in good shape , winter kill plus the rain overnight caused a day of mostly lift, clean and place. Greens are very good.

    I would say "good shape". The greens were still recovering from aerating and definitely on the slow side. Patchy spots on some greens. Patchy spots on many fairways, but easy to work around. Overall good, but not great .. just my $0.02
    You always hit a good shot on 18 to keep you coming back.

    Played Emerald Links on Tuesday, well organized all 3 nine holes were available. We played as a foursome 3 carts in just less than 4 hours. Green have been verticut so putting was hope and pray, but overall very playable.

    At Cartier - slow, and a lot of dead patches. Maybe later in the season.
