Kingston in golf terms is like the 9th hole. Typically, the 9th hole is one of the courses best holes, leads you into the half way house for a drink or snack, and kick starts the back 9. Located in between Toronto and Ottawa and at the beginning of the St. Lawrence river, there are a lot of parallels we can relate to golf. Home to hidden gems and regional favorites, Kingston might be little lesser known compared to the Ontario golf greats but what it lacks in notoriety, it makes up for with experience and maybe the most important part of any golf vacation, the 19th hole activities.
Kingston is a central location for golfers in Ottawa and Toronto. It boasts layouts like Loyalist, who has hosted Mackenzie Tour events, Smuggler Glen with its Canadian shield rock features and “stay&relax” attitude and Garrison Golf and Curling Club, the 365 a year club located on the Canadian Forces base.
Kingston has unique, Kingston has great and Kingston has fun. The perfect location for golf exploration and summer getaways.
