Stanley Thompson remains Canada’s best golf designer, an architect whose creations remain the country’s most-loved courses. At Beach Grove we have a course that remains true to Thompson’s vision: easily walked, bold in places, always picturesque and playable by all. With fairways snaking between trees that seemingly stretch to the sky, you’re not going to lose many balls at Beach Grove, but that doesn’t mean it is easy either. Instead you have the perfect mix of challenge and playability, and Beach Grove’s classic Thompson styling means no round will be quite like the previous.
The course is one of the earliest from Thompson’s long career, that includes the likes of Banff Springs, Capilano, Highlands Links and St. George’s. His hallmarks—detailed and occasionally devilish greens, and distinctive bunkering—can be witnessed throughout the course.
Beach Grove offers a short game practice area as part of its facilities, and also provides a winter golf academy for those seeking to improve their game in the colder months. The winter facility, which is operated from the professional shop, includes all the modern teaching tools, including Trackman, which allows our PGA of Canada professionals to fully fit you for clubs, as well as BodiTrack, which maps fundamentals of a golfer’s swing.
