Angus Glen Golf Club South Course

Angus Glen Golf Club South CourseThe praise heaped upon the Angus Glen Golf Club has grown steadily since it opened its doors in 1995. The vision of the late Arthur Stollery – to build a golf course that is not only Nationally recognized but also good enough to test the world’s greatest golfers, has truely become to be a reality. Angus Glen is not only one of the best courses in the Greater Toronto area, but it is also one of best in Canada.

The story started in 1957. Arthur Stollery started his family farm, to be renowned for producing top Angus Cattle and Thoroughbred Horses, by purchasing a 230 acre plot at the NW corner of Major Mackenzie Dr. and Kennedy Road near the town of Unionville. His passion for the game of golf eventually led him to dream of building a golf course along the farm in the scenic Bruce Creek valley. They broke ground in 1992, to begin transforming the lands that once occupied horse paddocks and grazing fields into what would become Angus Glen Golf Club’s first course.

Since its opening, the South Course has received much praise. It was named Best New Course in Canada by Golf Digest when it opened in 1998. It is currently ranked number 14 in Canada’s Top 100 Courses by Score Magazine and has received Score’s Service in a Public Facility #1 ranking three consecutive years, 1998 to 2000. The atmosphere created by Angus Glen’s staff is truely infectious. Patrons are treated to a first class golf experience from the time they arrive. From the greeting at the bag drop and on through the day, patrons always receive extra special attention.

The biggest title this country has to offer was bestowed on Angus Glen in May 2000. The RCGA and PGA Tour announced that it would host two Canadian Opens in 2002 and 2007. The original Angus Glen South layout played host to the 2002 Bell Canadian Open, won by John Rollins over Neal Lancaster. The new North Course, which opened in spring 2001, will play host to the tournament in 2007.

The new North Course is a collaborative effort between noted Canadian designer Doug Carrick (King Valley, Greystone, Osprey Valley) and American Jay Morrish (Troon G&CC, Loch Lomond, TPC Scottsdale). New land was secured at the north end of the property to house the course. A new 50,000 sq. ft. clubhouse was constructed in time for the 2001 Telus Skins game, played on the North Course, which featured Canada’s Mike Weir, David Duval, Vijay Singh and Sergio Garcia.
