Internationally renowned golf course architect Graham Cook and Darrell Huxham started shaping the course in 1998. The last fairway seed was put in the ground in September 1999 and the course opened in June 2000. Since then, we’re proud to have been many area golfers’ top choice amongst Hamilton golf courses. And we aim to continue offering you a premium golfing experience, with a constantly developing course built to maximize your enjoyment.
Modern design ideas were used to highlight the natural beauty of the surrounding Niagara Escarpment and to enhance the playing experience with challenging risk-and-reward concepts on this unique course. Our course features four sets of elevated bent-grass tee decks, sweeping well-defined bent-grass fairways, gently rolling bluegrass, fescue roughs, and 70 bunkers of pure white Ohio sand.
We have also established environmental areas to preserve wildlife habitats and promote natural flora. Our landscaping and gardens have also earned us several City of Hamilton Trillium Awards.
