A public course with excellent conditions and reasonable rates, Falcon Golf is a can’t miss stop for any golfer looking for a games between Ottawa and Montreal.
The course exceeded my expectations in almost every way, it was interesting, challenging and a fair test of ones game. The one downfall is the greens are painfully slow, probably no more than a 7.5 on the stimpmeter.
Montreal based Graham Cook designed the course. Graham’s known courses are way too many to list, but some highlights include Fox Harb’r in Nova Scotia, Le Maitre de Mont-Tremblant in Quebec and Dakota Dunes Golf Links in Saskatchewan.
The course opened in 2001 and changed ownership in 2008.
Daily Fee – $$
At $72 prime time on weekends, but only $58 prime time on weekdays and under $50 for off prime on weekdays, the cost is reasonable, actually better than reasonable when you realize how good the course is.
Memberships – ??
No information was available on their website about annual memberships.
For my money, the par 3 12th was the nicest hole on a course of nice holes. A long, but downhill par 3 with water on the right.
Why I Would Go Back:
If I lived closer, I would play this course everyday. I liked everything about it. The conditions were great and the layout was fun. I played it on a particularly wet day, and would love to see how it plays under dryer conditions.
As much I enjoyed the course, my time to play it may be running out. In December 2016 it was reported that the course was up for sale and redevelopment was a possibility.
Bucket List = How high on list of courses I want to play
Overall it was a great track that enjoyed playing and I will be back, hopefully it stays in business long enough for that to happen.
See you at the turn,
