    George Cumming, considered the "Dean of Canadian Professional Golfers", was commissioned to design the original, 9 hole, Sault Golf Club in 1919. Built at the boundary of the City—on an area of swampy marshland, drained by ditches and Clark Creek (with some elevated areas of ice age morainic material). The original first and ninth holes played across, what is now the busy thoroughfare of Queen St. The original first tee can still be seen East of the clubhouse. In 1920 Cumming then partnered with his protégés, the Thompson brothers, Stanley and Nicol, to create The Thompson, Cumming and Thompson golf course design group. Stanley Thompson is widely regarded as the foremost designer of golf courses that Canada has ever produced. In 1952 Stanley Thompson redesigned the original Cumming 9 holes and added a further 9. Sault Golf Club was his last course design prior to his death in 1953. The course was completed by his brother Matt Thompson.
    The Sault Golf Club has kept the Stanley Thompson feel, routing, style and design philosophy. It has been modernised sympathetically to produce a pleasant, playable course, with 4 or 5 tee decks, which can be enjoyed by all player abilities and be easily walked.
