In the shadow of the Niagara Escarpment, between Collingwood and Devil’s Glen, and a short drive from Wasaga Beach – Batteaux Creek Golf Club offers golfers one of the most scenic and playable layouts in Ontario.
Designed by architect Stephen Young (Grey Silo), Batteaux Creek opened for play in 2002, and covers over 250 acres. His design features manicured bent grass fairways, oversized true rolling greens, and hazards in the form of plentiful bunkers, natural areas, lakes, and ponds. These all conspire to create numerous risk/reward opportunities – and like all Young designs, playing for Bogey is a pretty safe path, but challenging the course for Birdies often results in doubles or worse.
An inviting board & batten clubhouse is situated at the end of the lane, overlooking one of the three main ponds on the golf course. Clubhouse features include; great food, friendly service, and vistas of the golf course and the Blue Mountains.
This is a ‘player’s course’, and presentation of the teeing areas has been thoughtfully calculated as the five sets play to 7003 yards/140 slope, 6728 yards/136 slope, 6355 yards/132 slope, 5929 yards/125 slope for men and 129 for women and 5309 yards with a slope of 122. This system of evenly dispersing the yardages allows for golfers of all skill levels to choose a set of tees that matches their game.
