Willodell Golf Club of Niagara
The rolling terrain at Willodell Golf Club of Niagara's 18-hole course may lull golfers into a false sense of security, but allowing the landscape to do so would undermine the course's chief threat: water hazards. The 6,481-yard, par 72 layout, voted "Best Golf Course in Niagara" in the Niagra Falls Review's 2012 Reader's Choice Awards, features several sneaky waterways that come into play on 10 holes, showcasing ponds of all sizes and the watery guise of Lyon's and Tee Creeks. Some water features are difficult to spot, obscured by brambly depressions and trees walking to the shores for a drink. A 484-yard par 5, the first hole eases golfers into the round, and a 300-yard, grass-tee driving range lets golfers warm up their swings.
Off the course, made-from-scratch soups, stocks, and sauces add a flavourful punch to dishes at Willodell Golf Club's dining room, which offers 10-ounce burgers alongside savoury entrees such as sweet-chili salmon and vegetable stir-fry. Along with a dining room and lounge, the restaurant offers patio seating for guests who prefer to dine in the company of their solar-powered caddies.
