The strength of a great golf course is how well if reflects the landscape it is created from. The best emphasize that environment and its natural beauty. Smuggler’s Glen Golf Course, located just east of Kingston, near the 1000 Islands community of Gananoque, does this in the most Canadian of ways.
With a 300-acre setting marked by rocky granite outcroppings, clears waters, dense forests and plenty of elevation, no golfer seeking a natural setting for the game will be left unfulfilled.
Since opening in 2005 the layout affiliated with the nearby Smuggler’s Glen Resort has been drawing praise and acclaim. It was nominated for the Best New Golf Course in Canada Award in 2006 by Golf Digest. Since then it has annually received recognition in the regional Reader’s Choice Awards and proved to be a worthy host for the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada in 2012.
At just over 6500 yards (with multiple tee options) golfers will find a golf course that places more value on strategy then length.
The routing is a breathtaking one, visually, as holes begin from the 7,000 square foot “cottage-style” clubhouse with a far-reaching view of the St. Lawrence River and work their way through land worthy enough to be a subject for a Group of Seven painting. The 18 holes are carved between the rock faces, tree-lines, natural hills and valleys.
No matter your score, a round at Smuggler’s Glen will leave you refreshed, relaxed, and pleased that you made the trip.
