Course Review – Falcon Golf

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.

Course Designer:

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.

Year Opened:

The course opened in 2001 and changed ownership in 2008.

Cost:

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.

Favorite Hole:

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.

Interesting Information:

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.
