Assistant Golf Professional: BlackHorse Golf & Country Resort

BlackHorse is tucked away in a quiet rural setting, about an hour’s drive from Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph and Owen Sound; a bit more from London, Sarnia and Orangeville. This 6,836-yard track east of Kincardine has sensational bentgrass greens and tees, impeccably cared for fairways and a stunning layout. Two holes carved out of a former gravel pit are among the most spectacular, offering dramatic views and the challenge of playing around a 5-acre spring-fed lake. The facility offers a state-of-the-art 30 acre practice range featuring all turf tees.

SCOREGolf magazine in 2008 called BlackHorse “one of the top new courses in Ontario and one of the best golf values in the province”. London Free Press golf writer John Herbert ranked it as the “Best Public Course in Southwestern Ontario” with the “Best Greens”.
