Located in one of Canada's most picturesque settings, Upper Canada Golf Course was designed by noted golf course architect Robbie Robinson in the early 1960s.
This 6,922 yard, 18 hole public course challenges both beginners and skilled golfers alike. It winds through evergreen and deciduous trees, sometimes alongside waterways, and offers glimpses of natural beauty and wildlife like no other course. An improved drainage system means the course is open earlier and greens and fairways are in excellent condition.
On site driving range and putting green is available for practice or clinics. The course's clubhouse features a restaurant, bar, locker rooms, showers and a Pro Shop.

Large spacious greens so don't feel bad about taking a few extra putts during your round. It's not unusual to face a 60 foot challenge.
Check the pin placement as it can affect you club selection.
On the back 9 the greens tend to be a bit smaller.
The fairways on the front 9 seemed fine but a bit of winter kill appeared on the back.
150 markers are beautifully marked. You can't miss them. The 100 and 200 yard markers are a bit hard to find.
Most holes provide quite a bit of room for error.
A fourth tee set has been added this year but is not reflected on the scorecard.
The par 5 #2 hole has questionable yardage as at nearly 500 yards I had no problem making the green in two after an average drive.
Tees were nice and flat and I don't ever remember having to reposition to find level footing.
Although very flat land, Upper Canada is very well designed. There's not a lot of bunkers but what is visible is very well positioned.
Four consecutive holes on the back 9 (holes #12-#15) have water along the left hand side. If you tend to pull left you'll probably lose at least one ball through this set of holes.
Upper Canada is priced about where is should be for the quality of course offered.
This is one course worth playing if you're in the area.
Upper Canada offers challenge in length and ball placement. A good course to practice your course management.
In the fall this is a beautiful course to play because there's lots of trees. Canadian geese make Upper Canada a home throughout the season. It's not unusual to hit a ball over many heads of migrating geese during late season.
If you wander off the fairway into trees you can generally find your ball but a tough out will likely be required.
Expect to see a few small aircraft in the area as a flying club is next to the front entrance.
The beverage cart was encountered a few times during play.
The starter informed us of changes to the course (he identified the new tee set).
The marshal was seen a few times during play.
All staff was courteous.
A good sized clubhouse that is well maintained. Golf and dine is offered a few evenings. Call the club for details.
Pro shop is adequately stocked.
I can't think of an easier course to navigate. The flow of the course is superb.
The scorecard needs to be adjusted to reflect the new set of tee blocks.
Ball washers were visible on every hole.
Upper Canada is government owned and operated by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission. The course is located directly across from Upper Canada Village.
Tournaments are welcome.
