Current layout by Arthur Vernon "Mac" Macan (1960), following the club's relocation to its current site. From its founding in 1911, the club had been located between 33rd and 37th Ave, east of Granville and straddling Oak St. With the move (6 km to the west) the club's name changed from Shaughnessy Heights GC to Shaugnessy G&CC.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar.
