Golf

One of the premier private golf clubs in Canada, the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club is surrounded by 225 acres of sculpted parkland, just 15 minutes from downtown Ottawa. The Club offers a 27-hole championship golf course that challenges all handicap levels and offers a beautiful and subtle test of golf.

The golf course, which was originally designed by Willie Park Jr. in 1920 as a “traditional style” 18-hole course, was expanded to 27 holes in 1959. Today, the three fully integrated “nines” combine Willie Park’s traditional style course with the more modern links style. And the way the course is designed, it is easy to come out early in the morning or later in the evening and play three, four or five holes.

The Club has hosted many prestigious events over the years – from the Canadian Open in 1932 to the Americas Cup in 1960 to the du Maurier Ltd. Classic in 1994 and the CN Canadian Women’s Open in 2008.  At the CN Open, the immaculately maintained golf course won high praise from spectators and players alike. “This is the best track on tour,” said Lorena Ochoa, the world’s top-ranked female player.
