  • Niagara - Battlefield vs Whirlpool

    hey all,
    looking to golf next week 1-2times and wondering what your opinions are on one versus the other.
    Also wondering about the conditions of each of you’ve played this year.

    Thanks

    Haven’t played this year but I liked battlefield way better. Whirlpool just left me disappointed because I believe it is supposed to be the better track

      I actually prefer Ussher's Creek (the other Legends of Niagara course), but Grand Niagara is the 1 in the area that I would choose
      Every great idea starts out as a blasphemy

        Played Battlefield last week , great condition. Whirlpool is still my favorite of the Legends courses except for the helicopters.

            They're fairly different courses being from different eras and architects. Whirlpool is the older Thompson course - fairly flat and not much wow-factor. That isn't to say it's a dull course, you need to be on your game. Battlefield is the newer course designed by Carrick; as a result, it's flashier and is much open, more visually appealing, and has more bunkers and water.

            I've only played each once, but I did like Battlefield more - the visual appeal is great if you like that sort of thing. I wasn't playing well at Whirlpool and was tired, so that may have tainted my perception.

              I agree Grand Niagara is probably the best course , however the question involved Whirlpool or Battlefield .

                Thanks for the input so far. I’d consider any in the region.
                I wish Hunters Pointe was still around.
                i do love the old design but when I played Whirlpool last, the conditions were not great. Love a tough course too.

                        It's a bit of a toss up for me. I have family out there and I'm usually asked "Battlefield or Whirlpool?" as far as where they should book for us to play. My answer is always "Either". I probably prefer the layout of Battlefield a little more, plus they have a driving range which Whirlpool does not.

                        Seems like the Legends courses have more 'deals' as well, as they're a little more off the beaten path (and they have 2 full sized courses as well as an executive 9 to fill)..

                          Battlefield suites my eye over Usshers. Played all 3 Legends courses last week. The greens are coming alone. Light and dark patches but rolled well. The 9 hole Chippewa course is a great warm up to your round. The practice facility is great also. The food in the main dining area leaves a lot to be desired. Better off booking dinner at The Keg.

                            I think that Battlefield is a great course, but I played Ussher's so many times on the old Red Flag deals that I came to love the layout. Plenty of room on the left for my slice!

                              Whirlpool is actually not a Legends course. Allow me to clarify as there seem to be some confusion here. Niagara Parks owns Whirlpool, the Legends on the Niagara facility and another course called Oak Hall. Legends has 2x 18 hole courses (Battlefield and Ussher's Creek) and one 9 hole executive track (Chippawa). These 3 are all at the same location. Whirlpool is a few minutes away, but at a different location. Whirlpool is a Niagara Parks course, but NOT a Legends course.
