Cheam Golf Centre covers a golfer’s whims from pre-round prep to post-putts on the 18th hole of the 2,618-yard, par 56 course. A 30-stall driving range facilitates practice cuts before stepping on the course, a layout riddled with surprise difficulties that belie the relatively short length. A winding stream comes into play on several holes, and bunkers sit green-side on nearly every hole, creating prime opportunities for golfers to practice sandy up-and-downs or model a new pair of sandblasted khakis. After conquering the course, players can head to the Tee Off Grill, where chef Michael Leduc crafts 8-ounce burgers, shepherd’s pie, and dips perfect for enjoying with newly whittled divot tools.
Chef Bill Shortreed and his gustatory brigade create a menu of gourmet meals, including AAA angus steak that ages for 28 days to emerge as a wiser, more experienced cut. Exposed beams support the earth-toned dining room's high, slanted ceiling, where seafood pasta, prime rib surf 'n' turf, and juicy pork ribs quench cravings for decadence. Tea lights illuminate the Grill House's carefully prepared plates, which may be complemented with domestic and imported wines, as well as an expansive menu of specialty martinis.

Yarrow Deli Co-op got its start as a deli nearly 30 years ago, crafting delicious sandwiches from fresh ingredients. However, it acquired a fresh philosophy six years ago, when it became a co-op. The co-op's employees work collaboratively, whether they spend their days pleasantly conversing with regulars, layering deli meats onto fresh-baked breads, managing the finances, or attempting to transform ordinary metals into gold.
