We loved this course. Very picturesque with vista views of the Bras D'Or Lakes. We played from the seniors' tees and the course was plenty challenging for us. (We are not low handicap golfers.) From the men's tees (5456 yds) this course will challenge most...More

Staff very friendly. The course was challenging yet very playable for the average golfer, man or woman. The scenery is beautiful, great views. Greens are tough but in great condition. A must play.

The Lakes was recommended for an emergency 9 and exceeded expectations. Immaculate conditions. Only negative was the afternoon bugs and horseflies.

An absolutely beautiful and challenging course. Liked it so much, returned the next day. A tad slow, but the views compensated for the times we had to wait.

Could be a great golf venue but poorly maintained. The course has multiple elevation changes which increases the challenge. Views are magnificent. Course is poorly maintained and could be a premier track. No marshal and there is a divot issue!
