Apprentice Professional/Assistant Professional/Associate Professional : Parry Sound Golf & Country Club (Updated)

The Town of Parry Sound is the world-renowned jewel of the 30,000 Islands on Georgian Bay, Ontario. It is the birthplace of hockey legend Bobby Orr and home to several cultural festivals. During the summer it is home to many cottagers and a popular tourist spot where the population grows to nearly 100,000 people with seasonal residents, making for a very interesting dynamic! The area boasts several Provincial Parks and unlimited water for boating, canoeing/kayaking and fishing.

Parry Sound Golf & Country Club is a busy course based in the township of McDougall just a 10 minute drive from Parry Sound. The course consists of 18 Holes designed by Thomas McBroom completed in 1982, it also boasts one of the best practice facilities in the area with grass tee-decks, a chipping area with bunker and large putting green. The clubhouse is fully licensed and offers a menu to suit most palettes.

The town of Parry Sound is an ideal location where it is only approximately a one-hour drive from Barrie. Two and a half hours from Toronto. About an hour 45 mins from Sudbury and North Bay. Oh, and under an hour to get to the beautiful Muskokas.
