The private London Hunt & Country Club is home to a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best in Canada. Known locally as "The Hunt Club", this is a parkland course in the truest sense, presenting a wonderfully natural walk over rolling hillsides and through picturesque river valleys.
No two holes are the same here, and even the two nines offer a different look ( ... the original plans envisaged a third nine, which was never built). Trent Jones' first design in Canada, developed together with Robbie Robinson, includes a front-nine that traverses land with intriguing elevation shifts. The less undulating back-nine wanders toward the flowing river before emerging back into the parkland for the final stretch. This tree-lined parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy.
Pick of the holes: with the Thames River behind and below you on the tee, the short par-3 8th requires a tee-to-green carrry over a wetland area to reach the safety of a well bunker-defended green. As picturesque and natural a hole as you could wish for.
Limited access: this private course is generally playable only by members and their invited guests.
Private club - guests may only play if hosted by a member.
Walking permitted. Golf carts available.
London Hunt has hosted many national and international events including the 1970 Canadian Open and three Canadian Women's Opens, one of them designated an LPGA Tour major championship.
In the early days the "New" London Hunt Club was often referred to as “Augusta North”. The course had little or no rough, and held similarities to Augusta National, where architect Robert Trent Jones was reworking some of the holes at the same time.
