St. George's Golf & Country Club
Opened in 1930 and originally named the Royal York Golf Club, Stanley Thompson joined Toronto Developer Robert Home Smith in the creation of St. George's. It was originally designed and built to serve guests of the Royal York Hotel in the heart of Toronto. Although the golf course would be 15 to 20 km. from the Royal York Hotel, the project went ahead. Once completed a regular limousine service ferried hotel guests back and forth. A beautiful clubhouse was completed in 1930 built in a French Chateau style with Tudor Revival touches that matched the motto of Home Smith’s company: “A bit of England - far from England.” (excerpt from Stanley Thompson and Icons of Canada).
The name changed to St. George's G&CC in 1946 when the original agreement with the hotel expired.
The Royal York Golf Club/St. George's Golf Club has been the site of many fascinating golf events over it's life span, first hosting the Canadian Open in 1933, the 1949, 1960, 1968, 2010 Opens were held at the club. Most recently Rory McIlroy won his second RBC Canadian Open title at St. George's last summer.
