Cochrane Air Services

Reviewed By Bill R - Port Colborne, Canada

Many years ago, I fished at Cochrane Air's outposts and Kesagami Wilderness Lodge - both out of the Cochrane Air airbase on Lillabelle Lake. This year I asked them to put us into a small, shallow lake with great walleye fishing (and some pike). Several lake choices were considered but we ended up at a small outpost on what is primarily a site used for moose hunting. However, the fishing was great !
The small outpost slept four, but because there were only two of us, we had more than enough room. It was basic, of course, with bunks, propane appliances - fridge/freezer, countertop 3-burner "stove" (no oven), lights, and the iconic outhouse / WC. All very functional.
The walleye fishing produced plenty of fish in the 18 - 22" range, but "eaters" smaller than that were few in number. Not a bad problem ! While many small pike were caught while fishing walleyes, 34" and 40" northerns were caught.
A family of otters used the lake and weren't shy about being nearby and, as one might expect, loons and beaver were commonly seen & heard on the lake.
The dock staff & pilot were professional, friendly & efficient - loading & unloading the plane, checking the camp equipment, boats, motors, weight allowances, ...
We'll be fishing with Cochrane Air again.

Lee Golf Club

Reviewed By SRQwanderer - Bradenton, Florida

I have played one round at Lee Golf Club for each of the past five years. The course is basically a 9-hole course which plays to some 5520 yards for 18 holes, with three par 3's resulting in a nominal par 70. Three or four holes have two separate tees to give distinctly different looks for the back nine. As one example, the 9th hole is a relatively straight-forward 316-yard par four. But when the alternative tee is used for the 18th hole then you are playing a dog-leg left, requiring a 150-yard tee shot through a very narrow tunnel of trees... and the trees on the left are out-of-bounds.
The course is relatively mature. Fairways are well maintained and most of them relatively wide... but enough of them have unforgiving high rough and/or out-of-bounds to provide a challenge. Two of the holes require blind shots to the greens. Greens are relatively fast and true. Bunkers are not well drained, so normal sand-trap techniques are often not effective/possible.
Not CGA rated for par or slope.
The clubhouse is fully LLBO licensed. Breakfast sandwiches, hamburgers and other simple fare available.
No tee time booking. You place a ball in a receptacle on the first tee to obtain a position, but the course is often not crowded. Good idea to call ahead to find out if the course is booked/reserved for an event.
Non-locals and non-members are welcomed.
In spite of the bunkers and the comparatively short total yardage, for an average bogey golfer this course nevertheless rates a very solid “Good”. An enjoyable experience when the weather cooperates.

You have to see it to believe it. This what snowmobiling is all about. Not for the faint of heart or princess and the pea type. What you`ll get is a view of this great country and and some of the Wilderness we have left. Bring your warmest clothes and leave your worries behind.
