For more than four decades, the starters at Cedar Glen Golf Course have sent groups of golfers over the threshold of the first tee and bid them adieu as they embark upon rounds of golf. The 18-hole course blends touches of both links-style layouts and parkland settings, featuring numerous tree-lined fairways as well as plenty of open, rolling landscape. Rather than forcing golfers to make practice swings by hitting acorns into a pile for lazy squirrels, the course features a driving range and putting green to help with ironing out pre-round kinks.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course
  • Total length of 6,314 yards from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole

The nonprofit Wild Center is dedicated to educating visitors about the delicate balance between humans and their natural surroundings, particularly in the context of the unique Adirondacks ecosystem. With more speakers than a speed-metal concert, the Build a Greener Adirondacks symposium aims to introduce eco-conscious community members to the country’s foremost green-building experts. Keynote speaker Tedd Benson will address the topic of off-site home fabrication and how building plans can be adapted to individual lifestyles and secret superhero requirements. Orators on subjects such as eco-friendly insulation, energy-saving appliances, and designing and building with reclaimed wood will also unfurl their leafy verbiage throughout the day.

Sculpted into the banks of the St. Lawrence River, Iroquois Golf Club’s links-style course spans 6,158 yards of gently undulating terrain. As players traverse the picturesque par 72, riverside winds, relatively sparse trees, and scorecards printed in Gaelic channel the coastal charms of the old courses of the Emerald Isle. Intervening waterways appear on all but three holes, placing confident swings and sound course management at a premium. Rounds conclude with a dramatic finish at the par 3 18th hole, where approach shots must send golf balls soaring over a water hazard that sits between tee and green and houses a community of great blue herons who raise their young on a golf ball-based diet. Patrons who arrive by plane at the Iroquois Air Strip or by boat at the Iroquois Marine Services can call the golf club and arrange for a shuttle to drive them to and from the course.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Course rating of 68.8 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 127 from the farthest tees
  • Length of 6,158 yards from the farthest tees
  • Three tee options

Drifters Outdoors keeps water worshipers gleefully afloat with kayak and canoe rentals along the Rideau River. Before paddlers embark on self-guided two-hour trips, the expert staff can point out distinct local scenery, offer tips on paddling technique, and haggle with local beavers for good lumber prices on the behalf of renters. After suiting up in a brightly coloured life jacket, paddlers begin waterborne expeditions of the stately tree-lined river, one of southern Ontario's major waterways. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal is open to kayakers and canoers all week long, and rentals depart from the Kemptville town docks on weekends. Though not included in this offer, Drifters Outdoors also provides stand-up paddleboard rental, paddle-fitness classes, and a summer camp for kayak-crazed kids age 10–14. Water-bound customers are encouraged to call ahead to check rental availabilities and to gossip about the weather.

During summer camps or classes held after school and on the weekends, Pawsitively Pets also uses kids’ enthusiasm for animal interactions to fuel projects and cooperative group activities, helping foster kids’ inner creativity and teamwork skills.

When Captain Andy boarded his first ship at age 17, he had no time for sightseeing—the young merchant marine was too busy hauling iron ore, road salt, and coal to factories along the banks of the Great Lakes. Maybe that's why Captain Andy now takes such delight in whizzing past idyllic islands at 45 mph in the newest addition to his fleet, a Wildcat catamaran. Though an adrenalin rush accounts for some of the Wildcat's appeal, Captain Andy is most pleased that the boat's speeds can help him expose passengers to even more island attractions during his informative and entertaining tours.

A native Ontarian, Captain Andy touts the Brockville waterfront as one of the most accessible and diverse in the world, and happily points out his favourite waterfront parks for picnicking and fishing during his trips. In the same vein, his cruising company offers seven diverse tours that incorporate adventure, theatre performances, and local sightseeing to help riders experience all the wonders of the area by water. The seasoned sailor also recognizes the advantage of helming his smaller ships; their compact size not only ensures more intimate tours and more time with passengers, but allows them to duck into the region's narrow channels where larger boats and determined icebergs can't follow.
