Regions to Golf in Ontario

York Durham Headwaters

This is the vast region that sweeps across the top of Toronto like a giant brushstroke from Pickering in the east to the Caledon Hills in the west. It’s home to perhaps the largest concentration of great golf courses in Canada. There is a great debate sweeping across the region:  which of the golf courses is the best?

Bay of Quinte

Former three-time British Open champion Henry Cotton (who later became a noted journalist) was once asked what it felt like to hit a perfectly struck 8-iron to within gimme range. “Moments of poetry,” he replied. That’s what you get when you visit the Bay of Quinte region of Ontario, especially if you are a golfer.

Golfers at all levels of play can’t get enough of BruceGreySimcoe courses, where they can keep one eye on the ball and the other on the dazzling scenery. Many of the courses have spectacular shoreline vistas of Georgian Bay, Lake Huron and Lake Simcoe. Others are tucked in beneath the rugged natural beauty of the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve rich in biodiversity and geological history. In some cases, the majestic Escarpment rises up behind you while the sparkling waters stretch out before you or a peaceful, pastoral setting surrounds you.

And be sure to take a moment to appreciate your surroundings. Far from being rushed or crowded, you will experience a leisurely pace of play that is as enjoyable as it is exhilarating. The mood is recreational, the people are friendly, and it’s more than likely you’ll have made many new friends by the time you hit the 19th hole.

The picturesque scenery and genial atmosphere make the perfect backdrop for a game of golf that is as challenging or as easy as your skills and preferences. BruceGreySimcoe boasts many award-winning courses, designed by the likes of Thomas McBroom, Tom Lehman and Doug Carrick. From these professional-level – and some might say, formidable – courses at the apex, there are a wide variety of impeccably groomed courses for every level of golfer.

Rated as one of Ontario’s best golf destinations, BruceGreySimcoe has it all, from private clubs to semi-private to public. Challenge your skills, learn something new, put your stressful schedule on the back burner and for a few magical hours, enjoy a memorable golf experience that is among Canada’s best.  Or take advantage of the region’s golf packages to stay longer, play a few more rounds and savour the warm hospitality.
