Director of Golf: Hidden Lake Golf Club - Burlington, ON

Hidden Lake Golf Club

Burlington Post Reader's Choice Award winner for 'Best Golf Course' and 'Best Golf Shop'.

Formerly known as the Lake Medad Golf and Country Club, Hidden Lake Golf Club opened its doors as a straightforward, albeit enjoyable, 18-hole layout in 1962. Purchased in 1979 by the current ownership, the course was more appropriately renamed after the lake that inconspicuously flows alongside the finishing holes of what is now referred to as the 'Old Course'.

Much has changed since 1962 as Hidden Lake Golf Club has expanded into two exceptional, but very distinct, championship courses that cover over 500 acres of picturesque Niagara Escarpment. The atmosphere inside the clubhouse is warm and friendly; the clubhouse caters to both individuals and groups alike.

Whatever course you choose, you won't be disappointed. If you appreciate a more traditional, tree-lined course then play the Old Course. The greens are small and flat and water is non-existent. Measuring 6,712 yards, the course is very mature and features lush, tree-lined fairways and extremely small greens.

If you prefer large and undulating greens, more generous fairways and plenty of water then the New Course is for you. Measuring 6,743 yards, water comes into play on four holes, but it's the well bunkered contoured greens that provide the real difference.
