The skiers were still on the hills when Meaford Golf Club opened for play on March 17 this year. With temperatures predicted in the low teens this weekend, getting out for a round of Easter golf might be just the ticket. The Meaford Golf Club is right in town, right next to the Meaford Haven retirement community, and offers a twin nine-hole configuration, so you can play 18 holes of golf in two different ways – on the same day if you want!
Stone Tree Golf Course, just south of Owen Sound, is also open this weekend, accenting the golf with a delicious Easter brunch on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.. And with “Pay-the-temperature” green fees, the price is right. Pay only $20 plus the temperature for 18 holes, and $10 plus the temp for nine holes.
The same deal applies at Legacy Ridge Golf Course, which is the new name for the Owen Sound Golf and Country Club. With sweeping views of Owen Sound Bay, the 91 year-old club has started new life under ownership of Stone Tree. And during April, you’ll pay only $30 plus the high temp for 18 holes, and $20 plus the high temp for nine holes.
Cobble Beach, the much-lauded new links-style course north of Owen Sound, opened for the season today. Among other praise, the course has been named one of the top 20 courses in Canada by Links Magazine; Ontario’s Best New Course by Ontario Golf Magazine, and Top 10 Best New Courses in the World by Travel & Leisure Golf. It’s just a half-hour drive.
Just a few minutes down the road, the Golf Club at Lora Bay is also open Easter weekend – the earliest opening weekend yet for the course. This weekend, all greens fees are only $59, including power cart and just $39 after 3 p.m. The course has hosted the Telus Skins Game, and the PGA Nationwide Tour Ford Wayne Gretzky Classic.
Monterra Golf, at Blue Mountain, is also offering a deal on greens fees – only $49 through the weekend, cart included. Monterra (the “and at the bottom of the mountain”) was designed by Tom McBroom and opened in 1989.
These are just a few of the golf courses you’ll enjoy in your Ontario retirement community at Meaford Haven. So why not start checking them out now?
