Previous reveiwers must be staff. As a former member when it was private OCC has declined. Tees are mostly crabgrass and clover, no sand mix, that are only cut once a week. Bunkers have crabgrass growing in and around edges. Fairways have been narrowed by 5 to 15 yards, fairways are cut once a week. You will get flyer lies in the fairways. If this is your what you are looking for, then this is perfect. Should change the name to Ontario Muni. Go to Wayne Hills for great golfing experience.

No idea what that other guy was talking about in the earlier review, probably had a bad round. But I played in the same week and the course was in the best shape I've seen in years! Greens were rolling true! Pro shop staff was great and the food was excellent! Round was a little slow, but the course was packed. I will be back!

Considering the drought we have been in for the last two months, this course was in outstanding condition. The tee boxes and fairways were in great shape. The greens were immaculate, and quite challenging. All for the reasonable price of $35.00, for 18 and a cart.

Jim in the pro shop was very friendly and helpful.

The course was in OK condition. The center of many of the fairways was bare.

The greens were in good condition.

I played the Senior Tees, which were very fair for us older golfers.

The course has a great layout but the condition was disappointing. They had a drainage project earlier this year and the fairways have not recovered and are spotty and greens are slow. Overall though, can't complain given the Golfnow rate of $14.

Played this track on golf trip to Rochester... About 30 min from downtown but worth the drive at the price.... Great layout and design... Classic parkland track... Only drawback, and probably because of recent rains, rough was shaggy and balls just off fairway were very hard to find.... Will play again.

Went to the course, on Friday Afternoon-should have turned around after seeing the parking lot FULL! Golfed 12 holes-had to wait at least 10 minutes between holes. Do not know if there was a gridlock, but the foursome two holes ahead was slow and slower!!!!

I like the scenic aspect of the course. It is not exceedingly difficult but you can get in trouble if you are not careful. The green was a little slow today and we played around midday. It did not look like it was cut or mowed in the morning. All in all, we had fun with the round and would recommend it.

Was pleasantly surprised on the conditions, given the large amount of rain we've had recently. Pretty dry, with some fairway roll. Pro shop staff great, and was even able to get us off 15 min earlier than we booked it at. Only suggestion would be to add more speed to the greens. Otherwise, keep up the great work.
