The quality of this Les Furber course was immediately recognized when it was included in Golf Digest's top 3 Best New Canadian Golf Courses the year after it opened. Furber is often considered amoung the finest of Canadian golf architects, and his emphasis on shot value and balance between playability and challenge is evident on this course. The first of four sets of tees lays out a 5,388 yard challenge, while the championship tees extend the course to 7,007 yards. Greens that are over 30 yards in depth place a premium on club selection, and good shots are always greatly rewarded.
