Ontario Golf Destinations

  • Toronto

    An over-flowing metropolis that has embraced the influx of cultures that have poured into it since the post-Second World War years, Toronto could be the most multi-cultural burg in North America.

    Hockley Valley Resort boasts some of the most breathtaking views in southern Ontario. Designed by Thomas McBroom, the scenic links layout perfectly incorporates lush, bentgrass fairways with rolling, fescue-covered hills.

    Turnberry Golf Club may not have the length of its sister course located only 20 minutes away, Eagles Nest, but it has the same challenging character and unique layout.
  • Niagara Falls

    While the Falls themselves are the principal attraction on the Niagara Peninsula, the entire area has just about everything you need for a good tourist destination.

  • Burlington/Hamilton

    It's the ying, to Toronto's yang, or the working-class guts, to Toronto's glory. Take your pick, Hamilton is not exactly a glamorous place when stacked up against its long-time rival but it also has its own proud history, present and character.

    Tyandaga Golf Course is located in the heart of Burlington surrounded by the rugged beauty of the escarpment that encloses it. The municipal course is popular for its player-friendly layout.

  • Peterborough

    Generally regarded as the entrance to the Kawartha region of Ontario and a key stop along the Trent-Severn Waterway, Peterborough remains a notable, albeit quite small Canadian city.

  • Ottawa

    As the capital city of one of the world's most livable countries, it should come as no surprise that Ottawa boasts first-class tourist destinations. And though it may be a bit further down the list behind Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver when it comes to the most notable Canadian cities, Ottawa has all that would expect from a capital city.

    Thunderbird Sports Centre boasts Ottawa's only lighted par-3 golf course. The family-friendly course is ideal for beginners and juniors.

  • Barrie

    It's neither a suburb of Toronto, nor part of the area referred to locally as "Cottage Country." Instead, Barrie lies smack-dab between both and is quite comfortable with its location and in its own skin.
