The cool days of fall are perfect for hitting the links. There’s no humidity, the courses are less crowded, and the scenery somehow gets even more spectacular and serene. As the leaves fade from summer’s lush green to the reds and oranges of fall, we thought we’d share some of the most picturesque holes for colour-spotting at five Bay of Quinte golf courses.
Timber Ridge Golf & Country Club: Reminiscent of the Scottish Heather Lands, Timber Ridge’s holes meander through mature bush and wide open spaces. Large greens are peppered with 80 well-placed bunkers to keep you on your toes with each shot.
Bay of Quinte Golf & Country Club: Modelled after the country clubs of Europe, BQGCC’s first 9 were designed by Howard Watson in 1921, with the second 9 dreamed up by Robbie Robinson in the 1950s. Fully renovated in 2010 with a focus on new challenges, it’s a course not to be missed.
Trillium Wood Golf Club: Fitting in seamlessly with the surrounding landscape, TWGC is dotted with mature trees on over 200 acres of scenic woodlands. Trillium Wood also boasts one of the region’s premier driving ranges and separate teaching and practice areas.
Black Bear Ridge Golf Club: Sweeping vistas, all-natural water features and five sets of tees combine to make BBR a memorable championship course. One of the top 30 courses in Canada, Black Bear boasts all the facilities to keep you comfortable and your game on track.
