Tucked into historical Islington Village and Mimico Creek valley, Islington Golf Club is a challenging 18-hole, par-72 golf course featuring tree-lined, parkland-style golf holes, rolling terrain, and the meandering Mimico Creek. The course, however, has also benefitted from a recent commitment of considerable funds for course improvements that include new bentgrass greens, bunker redesign, hazard restoration, water reservoir construction, new irrigation system and, most recently, a new outdoor practice facility unveiled in 2015.
A new member club of the Stanley Thompson Society, the Kenogamisis Golf Club is situated along the picturesque shores of Kenogamisis Lake in Geraldton, Ontario, Canada. Geraldton is located within the Municipality of Greenstone only 270 kilometres Northeast of Thunder Bay. This community features a golf club with a rare blend of 18 holes designed by both Stanley Thompson and Les Furber. The Front Nine (Thompson Course) was built in 1938, while the additional Back Nine (Furber Course) was added in 2000.
The Lobstick Golf Course was built in 1935.
According to native legend, the tassle-top lobstick tree, created by lopping off a series of branches below the top, was used as a navigational marker.
The practice continued with fur traders, early settlers, timber cruisers and prospectors in the area. In modern times the lobstick tree serves as a reminder of the area's rich historical past, and marks the beginning of a course rich in golfing adventure and tradition.
