Golf is a game for a lifetime. What other game allows players of different skill levels, of different generations, or wildly different amounts of experience to get out together and enjoy a day in nature? All while playing a game that can be as serious, or as frivolous as you want it to be. There are health benefits too—studies show that golfers live longer, are healthier, and have a higher quality of life.

GolfNorth is all about golfers serving golfers. Founded in 1994, GolfNorth Properties was created with the vision of providing golfers like us, with more options to explore all the endless facets of the greatest game on earth. Whatever your budget. Whatever style of course appeals to you. GolfNorth has the perfect place, for your perfect round.

Whether you play every day, are a weekend warrior, or only dust off the clubs once a year for the annual tournament—GolfNorth has a membership or green fee program that will fulfill your golfing desires. It’s all about fun—you tell us what you’re looking for, and we’ve got the golfing experience for you. And if you aren’t sure what you want, we’d be happy to make some suggestions. Our goal is to provide you with the greatest experience in daily green fee play, golf memberships, tournaments, banquets, weddings or corporate functions—we love golf, and we want you to love it too.

If you need some help with your game, the GolfNorth Academy has instructors who can take you to whatever level you wish to rise to. And if you’re looking for a golf getaway with friends or family—well we have some options for you there too.

If you already love golf as much as we do, or just think that you might want to give it a try, and you can’t find what you’re looking for on this website—contact us, and our Concierge Service will be happy to help you. Every day is a great day at GolfNorth.

Power Cart Policy

GolfNorth’s company-wide cart policy is first come first serve upon arrival at the Pro Shop, weather permitting. For the most up-to-date cart conditions, please visit the online course calendars located on the individual course websites.

The only exception to this rule is for large scale tournaments, at which time the course will set aside a specific number of carts for event participants.

To rent a power cart, you must be the age of 16 with a valid G2 driver’s licence and credit card.

Cart Mandatory Courses

We currently have three golf courses which are cart mandatory. These courses still abide by weather-influenced restrictions.

  • Mystic: at all times, due to length of course
  • Grey Silo: weekends only, due to the length of the course and weekend traffic
  • Ridge at Manitou
Cart-Included Bookings

Our online booking engine will occasionally feature promotional tee times which include a cart. Booking one of these tee times is not a guarantee that you will be able to take carts if there are weather restrictions in effect.

Course Information & Policies

Course Closing Hours

The closing time at all GolfNorth courses is contingent on when it gets dark, extreme weather, or when the last group is off the course, whichever occurs first. If players are likely to finish the round prior to dark, then play/cart rental is not denied. We do however encourage all players to be off the course prior to darkness to prevent an accident or injury. Lounges do not close unless there are fewer than 12 players remaining on the course and Pro Shops do not close until all groups are off the course.

Courses with Driving Ranges

GolfNorth has several courses with driving range facilities. Click here for additional information as well as to learn about our Membership Range Program.

Walking on The Course

Due to safety concerns, non-golfers are not permitted to walk any GolfNorth course. All people on the course must be golfing and have his/her own set of clubs.

Outside Alcohol

At no time are patrons permitted to bring or consume outside alcohol on GolfNorth property. It constitutes a violation of the facilities’ Liquor License. Any outside alcohol will be disposed of immediately.

Rain Checks

Rain checks are not issued for such things as slow play, personal schedule constraints, personal commitments, incomplete rounds due to darkness, or the like. Rain checks will be issued in a dollar amount based on the purchase price of your Green Fee and the number of holes you played that you can redeem on your next round at the facility it was issued at.

Example: $50 Green Fee Paid ($50/18holes = $2.77/hole) 12 holes played before inclement weather ($2.77 X 6 holes remaining = $16.62 Credit)

Dress Code

Our Dress Code is designed to maintain an atmosphere consistent with the tradition of golf. In the spirit of accomplishing this, members and guests are requested to wear appropriate attire to all GolfNorth Clubs.

  • Golf shorts are permitted (5″ inseam).
  • Golf skirts are permitted (1″ above the knee).
  • Golf shirts with collars are preferred. Mock necks are acceptable. Ladies’ sleeveless golf shirts are permitted, however, tank tops are not.
  • Denim is strongly discouraged.
  • Shoes: soft spikes or soft-soled shoes permitted.

Leasing Opportunities for Course Owners

Leasing or Transferring the Management of Your Golf Course to GolfNorth

If you are an owner, operator, a real estate agent or adviser representing an owner, operator or municipality, GolfNorth welcomes you to contact us to discuss the possibility of outsourcing your golf facility to GolfNorth. In today’s world of increasing operating costs, such as wages and maintenance equipment, not to mention tighter government regulation and the drop in golfer participation, golf course owners are finding it more difficult every year to generate a reasonable return on their investment.

We work closely with interested parties with a view to successfully partnering with them to improve profitability while, at the same time, injecting capital to ensure the long-term improvement of their properties. GolfNorth’s management solutions typically offer owners guaranteed minimum rent and relieve them of all operating concerns. If you are seeking the opportunity to outsource the management of your golf facility, we invite you to contact us!

In Ontario, GolfNorth currently manages:

  • Grey Silo Golf Club
  • Rebel Creek Golf Club
  • RiverEdge Golf Club
  • Batteaux Creek Golf Club
  • The Oaks of St. George Golf Club
  • The Fox Golf Club
  • Settlers’ Ghost Golf Club
  • Loch March Golf & Country Club
  • Uplands Golf & Ski Club
  • Ironwood Golf Club

In Nova Scotia, GolfNorth leases the world renowned Keltic Lodge at The Highlands from Parks Canada.

Current lease arrangements range from 5 to 42 years.

Why Outsource to GolfNorth Properties:
  • Increased profit.
  • Elimination of operational headaches and concerns.
  • Increased free time to enjoy life or focus on other business interests.
  • Professional property and golf course management by the leading Canadian operator of semi-private/public golf facilities.
  • Owners continue to own 100% of their golf courses and property to allow them to fully participate in the property appreciation.

The question is not, “Why Outsource to GolfNorth?”… The question is, “Why are you not already outsourcing to GolfNorth?”
