WHITETAIL GOLF CLUB (613-628-3774)
Ontario Golf Course Review
Whitetail Golf Club in Eganville, Ontario is a par 72, 18-hole golf course that has been voted by Flagstick Readers as the Best Public Course in Eastern Ontario and Western
Quebec with green fees less than $45 in 2011, 12 and 13. It opened as a 9 hole course in 2003 but with the dedication of the owners and management, it quickly expanded to
become the beautiful 18-hole layout that it is today.
The clubhouse at Whitetail Golf Club features a nicely stocked golf shop that offers name brand equipment as well as clothing and other golf accessories. It also offers a
restaurant, and a licensed lounge and patio with scenic views of the 10th and 18th holes. Catered outings, special events and tournaments at Whitetail are available for up to 230
guests. Practice facilities on property include a large targeted grass range, putting green and a short game area with a chipping green and bunker.
The course is a wonderful layout that traverses a nicely wooded, hilly landscape that is typical of this area of the Ottawa Valley. Four sets of tees offer challenge and playability for
all level of golfers. The blue tees measure 6,496 yards with a slope/rating of 125/70.9, whites measure 6,100 yards (122/69.0), yellow measure 5,309 yards (111/65.6) and the
reds measure 4,904 yards with a slope of 115 and rating of 68.7. Water comes into play on 7 holes and 45 bunkers dot the course and guard the greens. Yardage markers
include stakes in the middle of the fairway at 100, 150 & 200 yards on all par fours and fives. Front, middle and back hole locations are designated on the pins with red, white and
Bent grass greens at Whitetail are mostly large, undulating and sloping, and are immaculately manicured - as are the fairways. Two of the par 3's (the opening hole and the 17th)
play over water and, while ample landing room is provided, greenside bunkering will challenge your iron play. Many tee boxes at Whitetail Golf Club are elevated and offer
beautiful views of impeccable fairways. The 362 yard hole #10 - rated as one of the best Par 4s in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec is a prime example with a view of the
green guarded by two fairways ponds, greenside bunkers and trees. Though these holes may be notable, every hole on Whitetail has a uniqueness and offers a special challenge.
Whitetail provides golfers with a layout that offers a nice mix of golf hole designs - from the wide open fairways, to the long narrow doglegs, to the drastic uphill approachs, and
well-bunkered greens - this course will not disappoint. Reasonable green fees and friendly, family-style service are simply the icing on the cake. This experience is highly
recommended by Two Guys Who Golf - a not to be missed - must play - in the Ottawa Valley!
