    They charge a "covid" premium price and wouldn't let us in early to hit balls. They let some people hit balls so I don't understand whats going on. Last year they provided water and range balls for less money and at least allowed you to sit and have a beer after. Now they don't have anywhere to sit and make you leave after the round. Very disappointing.

    Played a round of golf there yesterday. I will give the course the benefit of the doubt of the fact that it had rained a lot on the friday night, none the less... First once you get there their lack of club house is definitely unappealing, but I do not rate my very bad rating based on that, I do it purely on the golf. After paying 80$ for a round of golf I was expecting a lot, and as soon as I made it to the first hole I knew it was going to be a rough round as NONE of the bunkers had been raked in the last 2 days. Each and every bunker was washed out and left virtually unplayable. Being an employee at a golf course I worked the day after the storm and it only took us a crew of 4, 5 hours to put the bunkers back in shape. If myself and the rest of my foursome are paying that much for a round I would expect that at least the bunkers be raked. It had appeared that the super there had let their maintenance crew have the weekend off. I'm actually surprised that the greens were cut after seeing what the bunkers looked like. I will never play at watsons again and will encourage friends to do the same. I could've played hy hope and their bunkers would've been in better shape. Thoroughly unimpressed with the course, and the price in which we are required to play for a course that looked like a farmers field. My advice to them, drop their rates, sell the GPS's in the carts and invest in the course itself, maybe even hire a few staff for maintenance that were non existent this weekend

    This is a fantastic course with bent grass everywhere! The fairways are some of the best in the GTA! Greens, tees and bunkers are very good too. Very walkable and the staff is excellent. Walk it from around $60! Over 7000 yards from the tips. White tees are great for the high handicapper. Get out and enjoy this one! The only reason it didn't get a five star rating from me is hole #5 is a very short par 3 that needs to be lengthened. Enjoy!!

    Be careful when you golfed in the golf course. My friend and my car was keyed in the parking lot. Not call back from the management in the golf course.
