Whether you’re an Adam Scott wannabe, or sim­ply a run-of-the-mill duf­fer, Glen­garry of­fers a quin­tet of cour­ses – all within short dis­tance of High­way 401– that are sure to meet your golf­ing needs.

Start­ing in the west, just north of the 401 is Sum­mer Heights Golf Links, a fullser­vice club fea­tur­ing two cour­ses to chal­lenge all level of golfers.

A lit­tle far­ther east is the Cornwall Golf & Coun­try Club, lo­cated on the out­skirts of Cornwall, along SDG 2 in Glen Wal­ter.

Es­tab­lished in 1896, it is one of Canada’s old­est golf clubs, boast­ing plush fair­ways; small, speedy greens and a va­ri­ety of in­dige­nous, ma­ture trees. Check out www.corn­wall­golf.com for fur­ther de­tails.

Con­tin­u­ing east­ward along SDG 2, you’ll find Club de Golf Héritage Golf Club, a fam­ily af­fair es­tab­lished by Mike Hur­tubise and his fa­ther, Emile, in 1987, and run, since 2009, by one of Mike’s four chil­dren, He­len Hur­tubise and her hus­band, Pat De­Blois.

The 27-hole fa­cil­ity fea­tures a driv­ing range, putting green, and a fully-stocked pro shop as well as a fully-li­censed bar, can­teen and din­ing room.

At the end of the line (SDG 2) – lit­er­ally – is Bor­der Par 3 Golf, lo­cated just east of Bainsville, and about half a kilo­me­tre from the On­tario/Que­bec bor­der.

Owner Bill McKen­zie, who runs the course along with his wife, Joan, took over the busi­ness in 2001, and has spent the past decade-plus re­ju­ve­nat­ing the prop­erty – im­prov­ing and main­tain­ing its greens and trim­ming its trees.

The nine-hole course, lo­cated on a 32- acre prop­erty a cou­ple kilo­me­tres east of the 401 Curry Hill exit, of­fers very rea­son­able rates and an amenity-filled club­house.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call 613-347-3254.

The fi­nal stop on our course tour takes us about 30 km north­west of the 401 to the Glen­garry Golf & Coun­try Club in Alexandria.

Cen­trally lo­cated within an hour’s drive of both Ot­tawa and Mon­treal, the course was es­tab­lished more than 50 years ago – the brain­child of seven char­ter board di­rec­tors, in­clud­ing Eu­gene Mac­don­ald, for­mer editor of The Glen­garry News.

Its first nine holes were opened for play in 1962, and since then, the fa­cil­ity has ex­panded into an 18hole, semi-pri­vate course that in­cludes rolling hills, stands of both young and ma­ture trees, and seg­ments of the Delisle and Garry Rivers – both of which come into play on many holes.
