GolfNorth is thrilled to announce that effective January 1, 2018, it has agreed to a long-term lease for the operation of Ironwood Golf Club, located in Exeter Ontario, just 30 minutes from Stratford, London, and Lake Huron. Ironwood is also a short drive from four of GolfNorth’s existing properties – The Fox Golf Club (Granton), Cobble Hills Golf Club (Thamesford), Sand Hills Golf Club (Port Franks), and Forest Golf Club & Inn (Forest).
Ironwood’s original 9-hole layout, was built in 1965 by architect Dave Ferguson, who had acted as an assistant to Stanley Thompson (Uplands, Cape Breton Highlands) on the construction of many courses, including Banff Springs. In 1990, the current 18-hole design was opened under the architectural vision of John F. Robinson (Whistle Bear, Conestoga, Settlers’ Ghost), who took remarkable care, in maximizing the use of the gently rolling, forested hills to both scenic and strategic advantage.
The Clubhouse was completed in 2003, and has quickly become a favourite place for guests to celebrate their happiest occasions. Its comfortable, elegant setting has made the clubhouse a top-of-mind location for all kinds of events, from weddings, to tournaments, to corporate outings, or just a place for a pleasant meal with friends or family.
Location, breathtaking countryside, challenging holes and a friendly atmosphere, have made Ironwood Golf Club a preferred golf destination for generations. GolfNorth will continue to operate Ironwood Golf Club as a semi-private course, offering both memberships and daily green fees.
GolfNorth President, Shawn Evans had this to say about the partnership with Ironwood Golf Club, “We welcome Ironwood’s existing members to the GolfNorth family, and think that you’ll be pleased to see the wide assortment of courses that are now a part of your membership. For existing GolfNorth members, Ironwood Golf Club will provide an excellent opportunity to play a round within a short drive of some of our existing courses, on your way to the cottage, or as part of a Forest Golf Club & Inn Play and Stay package.”
