Swing into Summer at Canada’s Top Golf Courses

Canadian summers are perfect for outdoor activities—especially if you enjoy a sport where you can relax as you play


Golf is one of the country’s most popular pastimes, and the courses designed by renowned architect Stanley Thompson should be at the top of any enthusiast’s list. Whether you’re a Canadian in need of a weekend getaway or someone searching for the perfect place to travel abroad, it’s time to grab your clubs and make your way to one of the best golf courses in Canada.

Digby Pines Golf Club: Enjoy “Me Time” Your Way

This 18-hole championship course at Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa is an idyllic spot to enjoy the scenery as you play. Surrounded by tall pine trees and winding brooks, the natural setting at this Nova Scotia resort will help you feel at ease on the green. If some of your fellow travelers aren’t interested in playing a round, they can swap tee time for a spa appointment and indulge in one of the resort’s rejuvenating treatments.

Rio Vista Golf Club: Get a Great Deal Near Niagara Falls

Located along the Niagara River—across from Buffalo, New York—Fort Erie is a town rich in history and filled with hidden gems. One of those jewels is the Rio Vista Golf Club. This 9-hole public course may not be as fancy as some of the others on this list, but it does offer affordable options for all skill levels. Stay at a Fort Erie hotel for a couple of days to play a few rounds, explore more of Ontario, visit Niagara Falls or pack some bathing suits and head to Crystal Beach.

Waskesiu Golf Course: Wind Through the Wilderness

When you want a unique golfing experience, make your way to Waskesiu. This 18-hole Saskatchewan golf course sits in the middle of a forest within Prince Albert National Park. Often called “The Lobstick”—named after the tournament played there each year—the course has been a fixture in the park since 1935. Golfers of all skill levels play here, but experienced golfers can really put their skills to the test on this challenging course. Whatever you score on the green, everyone is a winner when you can end the day by grabbing a drink at the historic Clubhouse.

Club de Golf Noranda: Practice your French and “Jouer au Golf à Quebec”

Located in the French-speaking province of Quebec, golfers can exercise their options at the 9-hole Club De Golf Noranda course—it offers five sets of tees for a variety of different skill levels. Once the round is done, you can chat with other golfers while enjoying a drink or meal at the course’s rustic chalet. And while you’re in the city of Rouyn-Noranda, you should check out Parc national d’Aiguebelle where you can go for a hike, paddle around in a canoe or go fishing.
