CROSSWINDS GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB (866-319-5991)
Ontario Golf Course Review
Crosswinds Golf & Country Club in Burlington is a gorgeous 18-hole championship course that as one of the area's top facilities, is open for public play. The design meanders
along 200 acres of varying terrain, with a mix of tree lined and open fairways highlighted by picturesque landscaping and wonderful conditioning from tee to green.
The Clubhouse features a restaurant and bar with banquet and outing facilities that afford beautiful golf course views. There also are locker rooms with showers, plus a well
stocked pro shop. Practice facilities include a grass range, short game area plus putting green. The regulars who we encountered during our review rave about the facilities and
consistent conditioning of this layout. The attention to detail is apparent especially in the tee box areas, which often include flower beds and other aesthetic touches.
There are 5 sets of tees designed to provide opportunities for golfers of all skill levels to enjoy a round here. The tips measure a formidable 7240 yards and play to a slope of 136.
Alternate sets measure 6576 yards/128 slope, 6010 yards with a 124 slope, 5478 yards/119 slope and 5092 yards with a slope of 120 for ladies hitting from the forward tees.
There is a mixed gold/silver set as well, that plays to 6293 yards/129 slope. 100, 150 and 200 yard stakes serve as directional guides as well as yard markers on all par fours and
fives. These are especially useful on the many holes that dogleg left or right. Color coded flags indicate front, middle or back hole locations and Visage GPS are mounted on all
There are 65 intricately shaped, white Temisca sand bunkers situated along the landing zones on the gently rolling fairways or greenside, and water comes into play in, but from
the front tees the hazards are primarily situated on the perimeters, making this a women friendly course. The course design is such that most golfers will have an opportunity to
use every club in their bag.
Both nines have stretches of fairly level and open terrain, mixed with consecutive holes that provide tight tree lined and undulating fairways. The signature hole is the par three fifth
– featuring a gorgeous island green. The bent grass green complexes are usually undulating, so recognizing and landing on the correct portion of the putting surfaces will go a
long way towards lowering your score. Many of the greens have surrounding mounding or collection areas that create challenging up and down opportunities.
With the 5 tee areas, plentiful room near most greens and well conditioned and landscaped playing surfaces, this is a course that can be fun for all levels of golfers. This is a
good value for the area and highly recommended by this website! For more info, visit our page for the course with direct link to their website by clicking here.
