  • Intermediate Recommendations in Kitchener/Waterloo

    I'll be spending 16 months in Kitchener starting May 1st 2018. I'll be a 21 year old university student and am hoping to find a home course with a decent practice facility. Work and home will be in downtown Kitchener and convenience is pretty important factor for me. Any recommendations for where to look would be appreciated. Thanks!
    Edit: it appears like Westmount is an ideal location but has a pretty extensive waiting list. Any other suggestions would be welcomed!

    Westmount is pretty reasonable for intermediates right now. Hard to find a better track

      This.

      I can't say enough about the staff and facilities at Westmount, truly first class.

        If you're looking for affordability, City of Kitchener ran an Intermediate Membership special last year with a membership to their 2 courses for around $850. Good deal and Rockway is very accessible from the downtown area.

          I enjoy playing Rockway, but it is very slow pace of play unless you are first off.
          Even though it is short, it is mostly driver friendly if you're in the mood to swing the big dog

          I've played Doon quite a lot this year, usually being first off, and call it my "practice course" as I can use most of my clubs.
          Doon has an OK driving range too.

          Rebel Creek probably has the nicest driving range of the public courses in KW.
          Elmira has a nice range but a bit farther of a drive if you are living in downtown Kitchener.

          I love the variety of the Tri-City Golf club website.
          I have range cards at a few places in the area ( Wedges & Woods in Cambridge, and at Guelph Lakes & Vic East in Guelph )

          I'm a member of the Tri-City Golf Club website and have 75 credits for next season.
          ..... the weather better be good next year !

              Private courses with nice practice facilities include Westmount, Deer Ridge, Whistle Bear.
              ... call them up and see what the pricing is for you.

              Otherwise join Golfnorth where you can practice at Rebel Creek, and play a handful of their better courses within a 10-45 minute drive of KW. These include Rebel Creek, Grey Silo, and Mystic, along with several other nearby courses -> Conestogo, Dundee, Oaks of St. George, and a few other shorter courses.

              Other than the 3 private + Golfnorth options, that's about it for KW offerings for you.
