The course is nestled in the trees of the park and was very picturesque. Challenging enough course, but only one set of tee boxes. Fairways were wide, greens small, but very consistent with a course of this age. Staff were helpful and friendly. Only complaint was the fairway grass was too long and needed some attention.

Based on the other reviews I was very skeptical to play there. But I enjoyed it very much. Beautiful setup by master golf architect totally surrounded be green vegetation. The condition of the course can be better but the big plus is that course is natural and not sprayed with chemicals. And it's not kids and family course only. It's... More

Sad to see a Stanley Thompson course reduced to a tourist trap. Customer service is pathetic, with kids in charge demanding customers take care of their issues and returning dishes to the kitchen so their internet browsing is not interrupted.

This is a golf course that is NOT the greatest as far as conditions are concerned..It is only 9 holes and is more for a short visit for a beginner and family.

Elk island golf course is a nice 9 hole situated in the national park itself...but the price is a little steep...because you have to pay to get into the park...then pay for the course itself...so $50 for 9 holes is a little much...the course has a couple challenging holes which are neat...and the clubhouse food is decent

Very nice location with nice rolling hills. Course is not difficult, but has some places where things get tricky. Get Club House. Reasonable rates.

Over the years very little has been done to maintain the golf course. Rates have gone up but little has been done to justify the increase of green fees.

Dont get me wrong this is a very nice course with lots of hills but is kinda expensive because its out of the way and you have to pay to get on to the Provincial park
