We have about a foot and a half of snow on the ground. I'm thinking nothing is open up here.

Camisle brings back memory of 15 years ago when my father-in- law,teenage son and myself played it on New Years Day. I believe we were the only ones out. It was mild, with a sporadic light drizzle and we had Spanish coffee in their barn-hut after.
3 generations having a good time is all that mattered.

Nice story bl8d.

I believe the much maligned Anandale is open year round as well.

I dont know for sure but heard St Davids in NOTL and Bantys Roost in Brampton stay open year round. I would definitely call day of before heading out wherever you go.

Bantys does stay open but they usually only open and allow play if there's no snow on the ground. Don't think it's been warm enough for long enough to melt a lot of the snow

You folks in the "far east" will be pleased to know that all the courses here in Victoria are frozen at -1. I did manage to play Olympic View on the 31st with most greens temporary. Last year was much warmer!

This Weekend - The Driving Range will be open for practice.


Monday or Tuesday of next week we are expected to be open all 18 holes on the golf course. Stay tuned for further details.


I look forward to see you all on the 1st tee!

The good drainage and willingness to be open whenever they can was a big reason why I switched my membership to Pine knot. The staff there are amazing and they are true golf nuts as well. I really love the course too and it's quite protected from the wind which is a nice change for me. I'm going away for 3 days this week but I hope to get in a round on Saturday.

Is there any courses open down in the Niagara Falls or Buffalo area? I drove through on Boxing Day and was shocked that there wasn't any snow, given the huge pile I had left behind like 1.5 hours away.

Is this still the case?

Played Pine Knot yesterday and it was just amazing to be playing in January, thanks to TGN for letting me know that this course existed.
