This course is an overall nice course without anything too rememberal. The maintainace of the course was great with extremely fair greens. Although there aren't many unique holes it still offers value in the price, quality of the condition of the course, courteous staff, and availability of adding a logo ball to your collection for the logo ball lovers like myself. I'd recommend this course and give it an overall rating of a B+

This course is the most challenging municipal course you can play in the Waterloo area. Very long, very difficult, very frustrating. Hit it crooked here and you will be stone dead on your second shot most times. Practice your long iron punch shots before you come out and play this beast. When you shoot a decent round here it feels like you shot even par at the U.S. Open.
