Funny how goat track comes up so much for these courses. Maybe it would be fair to know what score people would shoot at these courses.

Curious if Cresthaven is still a course? If so it seems odd Castlemore is the only course in the poll that no longer exists. Also curious how Parkshore didn't make it onto the poll.

If we are only talking GTA then Camisle is the worst I've played. Bantys Roost was over hyped for its awfulness IMO. Still not good though.

3rd on my list would be Indian Wells. Pretty awful conditioning and quite a few horribly designed holes. The low price doesn't make up for it.

Here is what you said in 2005 on best and worst courses.

Streetsville Glen would most certainly take the poll today. It's nothing but an 18 hole middle finger to anyone unlucky enough to play it.

This will be a very odd statement

Muskoka Highlands but only the back nine.

My reasoning in the foot soccer holes everywhere with the pins I think it ruined a gr8 course

+1. Played it last year for about $25 from UnderPar, and wished I could get a refund.

FWIW, I don't think Richmond Hill belongs on this list. I know the place doesn't get much love around here but it is not comparable to a place like Ananadale or Streetsville. RH is always well maintained, it's just over priced for the level of challenge it presents. If it was priced more like Glen Cedars or Don Valley there would be a lot fewer negative comments.

Strange about Annandale. Has one of the worst reputations going, but it is always very busy.

But the conditions seem to be irrelevant, I think no one goes there because it is too crowded.

How about Winchester. So many holes where you feel like you are about to get hit from an adjoining hole.

Wear a hockey helmet if you venture there.

I would nominate Ayren Links on Taunton as junk as well.

Cresthaven still open and actually in good condition this year. Unfortunately it gets very little play. Have yet to see it crowded in the past couple of seasons.

It really should not be included in this list. It is a Par 3 and does not market itself as anything more than what it is. A short, walkable, quick to play course for beginners, kids or those practicing their short game.

Agree that Richmond Hill is generally in good condition. And in a great location for quick, easy access.

It is however highly priced and probably too 'tight' for many and too 'short' for others.

I agree with the approach taken by Top Gear when they tried to determine the worst cars ever made.

The did not include those cars that were admittedly cheap and without pretense. Instead they focused on cars made by respected manufacturers, and that had pretensions of being good vehicles and missed the mark.

A cow pasture that charges $25 and has no pretensions, should not be ridiculed for being exactly what it presents itself as.

But a badly designed or a badly maintained course or a course that rings out 6 hour rounds and then charges top dollars for the experience should be publicly denounced.
