Nine hole golf courses rarely receive the attention they deserve. Indeed, at one period in time golf courses consisted mainly of nine hole courses, but now everyone seems to think golf is 18 holes. To each their own we say.
We’ve been visiting as many nine hole golf courses as we can this season and King’s Bay was one of them. Located just north of Port Perry, Ontario on a peninsula jutting out into Lake Scugog, we visited during prime time weekend and played for just $20 walking.
The night before saw some serious rain in the area. Many of the local courses were closed so it’s a testament to King’s Bay that they were able to remain open. As expected, the bunkers were washed out, but other than that and some wet patches, the course was in pretty good condition. Fairways were long in spots and greens a medium speed, but at just $20 — take into consideration a bucket of balls at the driving range around Toronto will cost you about as much and an hour on a simulator even more — we had absolutely no complaints.
Despite working its way through a housing development King’s Bay is rather scenic. It gives golfers plenty of room to spray the ball, even having more than one split fairway, and a routing lining the shores of Lake Scugog provides some very nice vistas throughout.
