Thank you for 2 exciting days at Cobble Beach. I have wanted to go for a long time and it far exceeded my expectations. Great golf, comfy accommodations, yummy food, great scenery and a very warm welcome from everyone. You "work" in a little piece of heaven!! Thank you for taking time to play with us yesterday, a special day for me. You have to be there to believe it!!!
Thank you for your generous hospitality including the covered cart on Canada Day!!! It kept the rain away, for sure. The entire Cobble Beach staff is unbelievably friendly. They all made us feel very special.

I visited Cobble Beach with 5 of my golfing buddies on July 30th. We have visited Canada, from the states, for the past 19 years for a week-long golfing vacation. We have had the opportunity to play approximately 35 beautiful courses - public and private in that time period. Believe me, we are very discriminating when it comes to our golf..
Cobble Beach is hands-down one of, if not, THE BEST, facilities we have visited. The course is outstanding, but fair. The views are spectacular along the Owen Sound. The staff was very accommodating and friendly, and the food at the turn was great.
I have also had the opportunity to play Bandon Dunes, Torrey Pines, courses in Bermuda and Hawaii, and Cobble can more than stand up to the comparison.
I hesitated to write this review, because it's kind of an out of the way hidden gem, and I don't want to see it become too crowded, as we plan on returning.
Top-knotch in every way.

Visited this golf course again and it truly remains one of my most favourable golf experiences. The course is immaculate from the fairways to the rough to the greens, and even the traps (of which there are 96) are special. The greens were fast and tricky to read. You definitely do not want to land your ball on the high side of the greens here.
If you love to golf you just have to experience this place at least once.

Unbelievable golf course, tough as nails !!! Club house facilities are top notch, breakfast satisfying and filling. I will be back with my wife for a stay. I can Golf and she can Spa. Difficult location to get to for a day of golf book a package and stay a few nights. If this resort was closer to Toronto it would be one of the top two in Canada. Beautiful place and staff. A must play.

I played the Cobble Beach golf course this past Sunday. With the season of golf getting a slow start, with all the bad weather this winter, I was very surprised at the condition of the course. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like members of the club. Pro shop employees were polite and knowledgeable.Felt very comfortable walking around this establishment. The course was one of the best I have played. The greens were in very good condition considering how early it was. The views from some of the tee blocks and fairways looking out over the water were breath taking. I would highly recommend this course. I am going back later in the season when all the trees and flowers are in bloom. It's worth the drive to Cobble beach Golf Resort.

Great course! Aways enjoy playing the course. Watch the greens ...newcomers expect lots of 3 putts.. Had a nice family dinner..food and service excellent

Had heard lots about Cobble Beach from friends and all their accolades were justified. The course is in fantastic condition and it is true that you get a view of the bay from every hole. Some of the views from the tee blocks are breathtaking. The greens were fast and true and like walking on carpet with an inch of soft underlay. And the fairways were much the same. Generous fairways with sand traps in all the wrong places! And a bonus was that we could play all day on one green fee. Can't wait to return and try their Stay & Play package

I wanted to take the time to thank you for a truly wonderful golfing experience. On WednesdayThank you very much for your hospitality to my wife and my in-laws on this past weekend. We all really enjoyed the course and the facilities (Grey Cottage)!
I had not played Cobble Beach in 4-5 years. It has matured wonderfully. The course is a treat to play, with a challenge for all golfers. Again, thank you for allowing us to play one of Canada's true golf destinations. Your staff are first class! A great group of young people.

I wanted to take the time to thank you for a truly wonderful golfing experience. On Wednesday
July 10, 2013, myself and 2 other friends travelled all the way up from Toronto to play golf. It was
my first time but I am an avid fan of Doug Carrick designed golf courses.
The course was in excellent condition and the weather was beautiful making for such an incredible memory with Georgian Bay serving as the backdrop. Every hole was uniquely splendid and I loved
the individual characteristics. We were able to play 54 holes (my first time) of joyous golf and still
Thank you so much for the day and having such a great facility and friendly staff. I hope to make
it back soon!

I have had the privilege of golfing at Cobble Beach several times during the past few years and have always found it in excellent condition and very challenging. The golf professional and his staff appear to be genuinely interested in ensuring that you have a wonderful day on the course. There is a warm greeting when you arrive and willing staff to assist you in every way. The starters have all been helpful and friendly and marshals keep the play moving. At the end of your round someone is waiting to clean your clubs and assist you in getting your clubs to your car. All in all a great experience.

I just want to say that this is one of the premier, if not the premier resort golf course in Ontario."
-Tom Cochrane, Canadian Singer/Songwriter
Cobble Beach, a master-planned golf course community in Owen Sound, has become one of Ontario's leading locations to golf and to live. Cobble Beach is spread across some of the best waterfront land in Canada. Georgian Bay is visible from nearly every tee and green, as the course rises and falls along the route.
-Bob Weeks, Score Golf, November 2011
In an era when most courses overgrade their fairways to the point where they are almost as flat as a table top, Carrick’s work at Cobble Beach is brave and fascinating. The best holes also happen to have the strangest contours, like the dramatic 486-yard par four fifth, which also features a green site that pitches towards the front from the middle, forcing players to hit a lofted shot to hold it, or to consider playing short and pitching up.
Robert Thompson, Golf Writer
It’s a scenic and challenging course yet people who aren’t great golfers can still enjoy playing.
-Jim Craven, Cobble Beach Purchaser
I think what makes Cobble Beach so special are the spectacular views of the lake, the interesting rolling topography and East Coast character of the Clubhouse and Inn.
-Doug Carrick, Golf Course Designer
Just a quick note of thanks for an amazing experience at your fabulous golf course yesterday. From your gents who took our reservations and kindly overlooked us being tardy due to our drive in from Hamilton; to your generous starter Al who was nice enough to throw some fresh peaches our way; to your forgiving and helpfull marshall who led us from danger (especially on the back 9) and of course to your nothing short of immaculate and terrific greens, I bid you thanks!
This place was described as the greatest course a colleague of mine had ever played, and he's played some of the worlds most renowned: You fit the bill nicely.
PS...any chance you can move the whole resort to Toronto? A few courses there that charge substantially more, could use a few lessons from you and your staff!
