A first for the region - is a 12-hole golf course at Piper’s Glen Golf Club near Port Elgin. What’s great about this concept is it allows golfers to play 6, 9, 12 or even 18 holes (by playing six holes twice) and each round returns them to the clubhouse. Golfing great Jack Nicklaus is a big fan of the concept because it helps overcome the objection that golf takes too long to play and it also offers a great entry point for beginning golfers (6 holes at Piper’s should take you about 1 hour and 20 minutes to play). Looking for a great golf course, with the Bruce Peninsula as your backdrop? Cornerstone Golf Course is known for those golfers looking for the old 'Scottish Style Course.'
A short drive away you’ll find a distinctly different experience at the 27-hole Saugeen Golf Club between Port Elgin and Southampton. It’s a mature golf course that was originally designed by world-renowned golf course architect Stanley Thompson. This is a course where you’ll want to spend time enjoying the experience and soaking in the club’s rich history and beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended is a trip to the spectacular clubhouse and patio that overlook the course.
Further to the south between Kincardine and Walkerton you’ll find the highly acclaimed Black Horse Golf Course. It’s a modern 18-hole design that is kept in pristine condition and features two outstanding holes built in a former quarry. If you’re looking for a hidden gem, we would recommend Sauble Golf and Country Club in Sauble Beach. It’s a beautifully maintained 9-hole course that dips and dives through the rolling hills of a scenic property of mature trees, ponds and flowerbeds.
