rom Fort Erie to Port Colborne to Fonthill and all points in between, Niagara sports many world-class golf courses for tourists and residents to enjoy. Looking for a demanding course to suit your particular tastes? Today’s Niagara has a golf course for every skill level—from modest par 3 layouts to expansive championship and tournament venues. Many of Niagara’s courses have been designed by some of the most accomplished golf course architects in the business today—everyone from John Daly and Stanley Thompson to Douglas Carrick and Thomas McBroom.

With all the golfing opportunities here in the Niagara Peninsula, it’s no big secret why the area has become one of Canada’s hottest golfing destinations. Whether its aesthetics, facilities, services or course condition, Niagara is clearly a cut above the rest—and the critics agree. In recent years, Niagara’s golf courses have won a long line of accolades from many leading experts in the golfing industry including Golf Digest and Score Golf Magazine. Don’t miss out on all the golfing excitement the peninsula has to offer. “Par for the course“ certainly doesn’t apply here in Niagara.

TWENTY VALLEY GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB

A

member owned and operated semi-private golf facility, Twenty Valley Golf &Country Club is among the most respected and active courses in the Niagara Peninsula. Spread over 142 acres, Twenty Valley is a Par 72 championship calibre golf course. With six tee decks to choose from ranging in size from 5,203 to 6,701 yards, we can accommodate golfers of every skill level.

Twenty Valley was recently named the course with the “Best Greens in Niagara.” But don’t forget to watch out for the Twenty Mile Creek that flows throughout the course and is known to catch many wayward shots. Come experience picturesque country golf at its finest!
