Club History:

In 1896, the High Park Golf Club was formed. The modest 18 hole course occupied 50 acres along the west bank of Grenadier Pond. Forced to move by a rapidly growing city, the club relocated to its present site in the spring of 1907, and in January 1912 the Directors changed the name to The Lakeview Golf and Country Club Limited. For the next two decades Lakeview enjoyed a place at the top of Canada’s golfing community. Lakeview twice hosted Canada’s national tournament The Canadian Open. In 1923 (won by C.W. Hackney) and in 1934 (won by Tommy Armour).

The turning point in the Club’s history occured on Friday, July 21, 1939 when a fire destroyed its magnificent 30 room clubhouse. The club was purchased privately the following year and operated semi-privately for the next 15 years. The Township of Toronto (later The City of Mississauga) leased the club from 1956 to 1964 and eventually purchased Lakeview Golf Club in 1965. Lakeview Golf Course has since operated as a pay as you play golf course that the community enjoys to this day.
