The 18-hole Rock and Roll Golf course caters to the average golfer with play that allows for some challenge, but mainly encourages all members of the family to enjoy their round without too much frustration. Composed mostly of par 3s, the course plays over fairly level terrain scattered with trees and shrubbery, meaning golfers won’t have to adjust their swings to account for wild fluctuations in elevation or distracting mountain search parties. Rock and Roll Golf keeps all players hydrated with complimentary bottled water. After a round, foursomes and families can stick around and use the free picnic area, which features a propane barbecue grill, volleyball net, and basketball hoop.
With two 18-hole courses draped over a scenic stretch of Ontario countryside, Oak Hills Golf Club invites duffers to test their swings across rolling, timber-lined fairways. On both courses, constant elevation changes force players to hit toward uphill and downhill targets, and ponds, streams, and trees wielding catchers' mitts wait to snatch errant orbs. The longer of the two, the Highland Course connects across 5,655 yards, including an uphill, 568-yard par 5 that will require three long shots to reach the green in regulation. Though considerably shorter at 5,135 yards, the Glen Course requires more careful play with narrow fairways and traffic cones that carts must slalom in between each hole. The Club also encompasses a 30-stall driving range with grass hitting areas for pre-round warm-ups or casual practice sessions.
