Best known of being the annual host of the Bell Canadian Open, Oakville has more to offer than that when it comes to the ultimate golfing experience for both the recreational player and the competitive golfer.
Below are some of the premier golf courses located on Oakville. They’re all just a short drive away from Toronto and houses some of Canada’s top championship courses.
Glen Abbey Golf Club
Widely regarded as Canada’s top public golf course, the legendary Glen Abbey Golf Club is the home course to Canada’s National Open and has hosted the event 23 times. Designed by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus in 1976, the golf course features a combination of undulating fairways, receptive pathways, open and steep bunkering plus the famed ‘valley holes’ to excite and challenge players. In recent years, the golf club has garnered much attention for being the place where Tiger Woods did his breathtaking ‘Shot of 2000’ which earned him not only the Open title but also the much-coveted-but-rarely-duplicated Triple Crown of Golf by winning the US, British and Canadian Opens in the same year. If you’re in luck, perhaps you can even recreate Woods’ magical shot by playing at Glen Abbey Golf Club.
Deerfield Golf Club
Located just off the QEW at Bronte Road, the Deerfield Golf Club is the go-to golf course for those who love wide-open layouts and challenging holes to conquer, especially the water variety. Holes 1st and 10th requires a good carry over water to make it to the green and holes 9th and 2nd are both equally challenging. Deerfield Golf Club is also a local favorite and is often packed with avid golfers who just can’t get enough of its features.
Oakville Executive Golf Course
If you’re more of the spontaneous golfer and not into booking your tee time in advance, then Oakville Executive Golf Club would probably be the best golf course for you. Oakville Executive is made popular by their promotions such as All Day Golf Monday and $33 Tuesdays for Seniors. The club is also known for Angel’s View, a full par 36 9-hole course which comes with its own challenging charms.
Saw-Whet Golf Club
Saw-Whet Golf Club is a 132 acre public golf course that is known for a wonderful set of 18 holes, especially the closing ones. The convenient location, full driving range and The Owl's Nest Player's Lounge are the featured attractions frequented by friends, family and solo golfers at Saw-Whet. You would have to schedule your tee time 7 days in advance to play at the club though.
