With a mix of private and public clubs, Windsor’s 29 golf courses range from practice to professional facilities. Here are just three of the best places to Golf in Windsor!
Ambassador Golf Club
The Ambassador Golf Club, designed by famed golf course architect Thomas McBroom, is one of the top courses in the country. McBroom is responsible for the creation of some of the world’s most outstanding courses, continuously ranked among the best in Canada, the Caribbean, and Europe. The Ambassador Golf Club, like other Thomas McBroom’s creations, is known for its quality, design, and long-lasting beauty.
The Ambassador, a par 71, 7000 + yard, 18-hold public course, opened in 2005 and secured a nomination for the ”Best New Course” from Golf Digest the same year. It is considered the venue of choice for golfing in Windsor & Essex Counties and has hosted a wide array of events, both amateur and professional, including PGA Canada, CP Women’s Tour, and Canadian College Championships.
And when you’ve finished your 18, you can refuel at their Tuscan Grill helmed by Windsor-borne, Italian-trained executive chef Daniele Palanca. Try gems like their Ambassador Burger (Ontario Beef, Local Mozzarella, Sapori tomatoes, arugula, spicy mayo on a fresh baked bun) or snack on their famous Mac & Cheese Balls!
Roseland Golf & Curling Club
A designated heritage site for the Windsor-Chatham area, Roseland Golf & Curling Club features an 18-hole, championship golf course along with a 9-hole par three course, and curling amenities. The courses, designed by famed architect Donald Ross, are open to the public typically from the end of May until the first weeks of December.
First opened in 1928, Roseland Golf & Curling Club was restored to its original specifications in 2012, including the bringing back into play of 20 bunkers that had eroded over the years.
The onsite restaurant features favourites like Chicken Fingers, Fish & Chips, and always popular Perogies; they also feature several vegetarian options.
Roseland Golf & Curling Club has received the highest rating for the Windsor-Chatham area by Golf Canada magazine.
Beach Grove Golf & Country Club
Founded in 1921, the Stanley Thompson-designed Beach Grove Golf & Country is one of the oldest and most loved courses in the region. Featuring a full 18-hole course, as well as short game areas, and even a golf academy for those who don’t want to stop playing because it’s winter!
Their clubhouse, recently updated to the tune of $5 million dollars, is one of the most luxurious dining options in the greater Windsor area. You can choose to dine in their classic dining room, or enjoy your meal al fresco while taking in the spectacular Lake St. Clair scenery.
With an emphasis on family, their membership includes diverse family activities such as a championship swimming pool and a 28-docking-area marina.
