“great little course”

Baddeck Forks Golf Course
Attraction details
Reviewed July 19, 2015

Went up to the family farm in cape breton for vacation and wanted to play a little golf. They had a tough winter so i wasn't expecting much as far as course conditions. Played Bell Bay and Cabot Links, great courses but because of winter were still rebounding. Found Baddeck forks and wanted to play a quick 9, wow, the conditions of the greens were perfect. What a great little course, if you get a chance, stop by and play it. Just don't forget the bug spray.

If you haven't played this little gem of a course in the last couple of years it's time to head out and give it a try. Having already playing the course twice this year it is truly amazing what Darren and Loretta have done to upgrade again this year. The short rough and fairways are well defined this year. There has been more clearing and additional drainage added this year. Even the addition of new flags and more ball washers has made this year's opening a real pleasure. The clubhouse and restaurant, like always, are warm and inviting. The entire staff make you feel welcome and everyone is treated like a member. With all the other courses in the area unfortunately receiving so much winter damage it's a great time to try out the Forks. You will not be disappointed.

The husband and I aren't "great" golfers but like to try courses that are not too difficult and have a nice layout and great groundskeeping - and this one was perfect and reasonably priced. Had been bought out a couple or so years ago and the clubhouse, pro shop, restauraunt, bar looked quite new. Fairways well kept and have never seen such perfectly 'manicured' greens. It's only 9 holes but rates are very reasonable ($25 for late Sept) and you can play another 9 for just another $10 plus, tax. About a 10 min. drive north from Baddeck.

This is a great 9 hole golf course for beginners. Seeing as this was only the 3rd time my husband and I had golfed, we appreciated the staff and the friendly atmosphere. There wasn't any pressure, only just some helpful hints and suggestions. The only down side was the number of flies, but I can't blame nature on the golf course. The club house was clean and a great place to have a few beers. We didn't eat here, but other people's food looked great.

Great course; well maintained. Wonderful new owners and new club house. Lots of new changes to the course and the staff is fantastic. Food in the clubhouse is wonderful and prices are great. Come out and enjoy Ladies day on Wednesday's at 1030. You will enjoy.
