The survey results are in and our readers have picked the top golf courses in the Blue Mountain Collingwood area. Here they are in order:
1. The Georgian Bay Club
With spectacular views overlooking Georgian Bay, the Georgian Bay Club is elegance, challenge and scenic beauty wrapped into one. It was the Top Ranked New Private Course in Canada for 2005 by Golf Digest magazine and it’s our top-ranked too. The 217 yard par 3 third hole provides an amazing vista but keep your eye on the ball because the green is on a plateau. This year it’s the host for the Wayne Gretzky Classic in July and the Wayner is always right. www.georgianbayclub.com
2. Blue Mountain Golf & Country Club
The longest established club in the area is also the local’s secret friendly play and our #2 ranked course. An excellent walking course the natural beauty of the Niagara Escarpment acts as a great backdrop to the course’s well maintained tees, mature fairways, greens and and friendly crowd. Blue Mountain is an 18 hole par 70 golf course that measures 6097 yards. http://www.bmgcc.net/ Tel: 705-445-3911
3. Batteaux Creek Golf Club
Nestled between the Escarpment, Collingwood and Wasaga Beach, this is one of the most scenic and playable courses in the area. For the talented, there’s plenty of risk/reward scenarios with lots of water, sand but spacious greens. For the lesser-skilled, five sets of tees on every hole allows the low handicap player to bring certain hazards into play to present more of a challenge. http://www.batteauxcreek.com Tel: (866) 479-3754
4. OslerBrook Golf & Country Club
One of the newest kids on the block, OslerBrook was started by a group of local players which included a group from neighbouring Osler Bluff Ski Club. Designed by Graham Cooke, the course butts right up against the 800 foot Escarpment providing spectacular views of the entire area. From there is follows the rolls put there by the same glaciar that gave us the escarpment. Challenging but with easy outs, it’s becoming the serious golfer’s favourite but with six tee boxes, your grandmother can play it too. You might need to know someone to get on. http://www.oslerbrook.com Tel: 800.616.4623

We get a lot of folks who book our chalets & lodges to bring a gang up for a week of golf and we’re often asked what the best golf course in the area is. With the Blue Mountains on one side and Georgian Bay on the other, the Collingwood area has a lot of beautiful courses and there are some great new ones in the last couple of years so it’s a tough tough question. So we decided to give up answering ourselves and ask you instead.
