Dalhousie is a bit of a head scratcher of a golf course from start to finish, I've been luck to play the course a few times from a few different tee boxes and each time I come away with a slightly confused reaction to the course. There are a number of great holes on the course and a number of not so great holes on the course, and these holes tend to change based off of which tee boxes you play. Similarly, due to this, I feel that you never get a stretch of great holes, you get 1,2 or maybe 3 great/good holes in a row and then move on to one that you feel is a little of a head scratcher again.
My favorite holes on the course are 9 (off the back tees), 15 and 16. 15 and 16 particularly feel like great holes, which are in the back corner of the property. This part of the property is very quiet/peaceful and you are rewarded with a couple great holes which reward accurate driving and birdie/eagle opportunity at 16.
The staff and course conditions at Dalhousie have always been fantastic when I played it, which only adds to the confusion you have when leaving it. Great place, great people and a mix of good and not so good golf holes. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
