St. George's Golf & Country Club

“Golf without bunkers and hazards would be tame and monotonous ... so would life.” - B.C. Forbes, Founder Forbes Magazine
The course is located in a dense, residential area, bounded by large, stately homes and by Islington Avenue to the west and Eglinton Avenue to the north. The course itself is perenially ranked as one of the top 3 golf courses in Canada and has spent much time as the # 1 course in Canada, as well as being ranked as one of the Top 100 courses in the world.
The club was designed by Canada's most famous golf course architect, Stanley Thompson, and opened for play in 1929. Mr. Thompson is responsible for many of the top 10 courses in Canada, including Highland Links in Nova Scotia, and Banff Springs Golf Club and Jasper Park Golf Course in Alberta. Stanley Thompson grew up caddying at the Toronto Golf Club and no doubt took some of the lessons learned from that great Harry Colt and put them into practice in his own work.
St. George’s was rated No. 1 in Canada and No. 10 in the World outside the United States by Golf Digest Magazine in 2012, a fact which generates a great deal of pride among St. George’s members, young and old. In 2013, St. George's was also named as part of the top 100 Platinum Clubs of the World. St. George’s has won much praise from noted tour players over the years for its persistent demand for accuracy and four finishing holes.
