Upon further reflection of my stay at Cobble Beach Resort I've only ever had similar feelings of a course/resort which date back to 2012 when I had the chance to play Cabot Links and stay at the then brand new Cabot Links Resort. I've only been able to take away many positives from my stay at the Resort and my two rounds played there.
From the engaging and attentive staff that meets and exceeds your expectations, Cobble Beach is truly a place I tell anyone that asks, "Go there you'll love it!"
Cobble Beach #1 Stewart - A great starting hole, uphill par three where par is a great score.
The course is great for all handicaps it will both entice and excite at almost ever hole. With every hole having a view of Georgian Bay, Cobble Beach is a very scenic course. You'll love the 17th a beautiful par 3 with a tough green and a perfect view of "The Bay".
Cobble Beach Links is a very well maintained course and talking to the staff you can really tell they take pride in their jobs and the appearance of the course especially the greens. The second day I played the course they were plugging some spots on and near the green on #10 and you could tell they took pride in what they were doing.
Meadow Hole #3 A wide landing area but trouble both left and right
It's not surprising Cobble Beach was just ranked #17 for ScoreGolf.com's Top 59 Canadian Public Courses the Doug Carrick designed course will appeal to all levels of golfers. The setting of the course could not be better to get away from the hustle and noise of the city. Although a fair drive from Ottawa my wife and I found our two days more like a week with dining and spa treatments complimenting the scenic golf course. Definitely worth the drive for the whole Cobble Beach experience.
The Cairn Hole #6 A fun par 3 that's deceiving longer than it looks.
Chi-Cheemaun #7 A hole to let it rip carry it over the crest and you'll have a shot at the green in 2. Tough green with another amazing backdrop.
Your short game will be tested at Cobble Beach with many greens having run off areas plus shaved down areas so good chipping/pitching and putting will save you a few strokes.
Nahnee #9 Straightaway Par 5 with trouble both left and right. A 3 shot par 5 for most, enjoy the scenery and be happy with a par.
Ruin #10 A tough uphill par 4 with bunkers scattered in all the right places, tough green that slopes back to front. Good luck!
Temptation #15 A short downhill par 4 you have to go for it right?
Lighthouse #17 A par three that you'll want to play over and over, tough green but who cares the view is worth the price of the green fee.
The Cobble Beach Resort is the perfect place to get away for a few days of golf and relaxation. Don't be afraid to book a couple of days at the Inn and relax with some world class dining and an amazing spa after your round. A great place to recharge your batteries and play one of Canada's top public golf course, do check it out.
Bluff Hole #18 A long closing par 5 with an amazing view of Georgian Bay and the clubhouse.
