  • Calling London (Ontario)....

    Having recently played 54 holes at FireRock and forgot how solid a track it is.....and played 36 at Forest City National about 3 weeks ago - one of my favourite courses in SW Ontario (play it every year)....I've also played Tarandowah a few times, not my fave

    I likely can't get access to any of the 'Private' tracks - though I would graciously accept an invite

    .....can some of the 'locals' chime in with 'other' courses that are 'must plays' in the area

    Every great idea starts out as a blasphemy

      Pretty sure shooter played St Thomas a few years ago. I'd say outside of a few private courses you have played the must play courses around here. For public courses Firerock Forest City and Tarandowah would be the top 3 imo. Nothing else worth the drive.

        I believe that STGCC is having a public day on October 10th. You can phone and book your tee time.
        Gone golfin' ... be back about dark-thirty.

            Drove by The Oaks. Looked amazing. Private but 12km from FireRock iirc.

              Not exactly in the London area, but as a Londoner, I always make sure to get out to Otter Creek 3-4 times a year as the drive isn't that bad.

                If you're coming from the GTA you can always give Innerkip Highlands a look. A bit closer and in pretty good shape generally. The island green is a fun hole although I find the back nine a bit uninspired.

                    Played Craigowan TWICE in the last month.....Prefer that layout over Innerkip

                    This is the first time since they opened, that I haven't played Otter Creek -- love that track
