8th hole at Blue Springs Golf Club in Acton

Interesting to see the debate surrounding Acton, Ontario’s Blue Springs Golf Club in the wake of the review of the course by Robert Thompson over at

The review of Blue Springs has drawn more than 15 comments from local golfers, some who seem to love the course and some who are critical of the design.

Do you agree with Thompson’s sentiment?

Blue Springs has some terrific land, even where it is routed between homes. However, the routing is lousy and leads to several failed holes. It isn’t much fun to play – and even with tree removal I’m not sure it would be much better. This is a prime example of a course that needs a do-over. Reworking holes (the 4th, for example, would be more interesting if played backwards, something I’d say for several holes on the course) could bring big benefits to Blue Springs. It isn’t all bad – and there are several strong holes. But overall it is ill-conceived and awkward.
