Deerhurst Highlands Golf Course

4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   Deerhurst Highlands Golf Course Est. 1990

Where2Golf says: 

The Deerhurst Resort is home to the highly rated Highlands course and the much shorter par-64 Lakeside course. The Highlands course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Ontario. This tree-lined parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted.
