Granite Golf Club

Granite Golf Club is unlike any other in Southern Ontario. Nestled between the untouched beauty of the ancient Oak Ridges Moraine and the gently rolling countryside, it combines the best features of Scotland's oldest links with all the advances of a truly modern golf course.

Granite Golf Club is more than a world-class course, from the very beginning, the vision was to be the most family-friendly private club. The course has five sets of adult tees and two sets of family tees to accommodate all players, regardless of ability.


Granite Golf Club is proud to have been designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary in 2004. The boundaries of our Golf Course are buffered by protected wildlife habitat, which renowned Canadian golf architect Thomas McBroom’s designed to remain faithful to the natural contours of the land. No office towers or residential developments block your view of the magnificent countryside. The impeccable playing conditions are the result of responsible, environmental grounds maintenance, allowing the course to thrive in harmony with the timeless beauty of the region.

These Initiatives

The Junior Golf Drive and Gala is really focused on ‘Developing Life Skills Through Golf’. Golf Ontario and its’ partners deliver many great programs that help achieve this important goal with our youth. See below to learn more …

The Junior Golf Drive and Gala aims to benefit on course programs at the community level. It emphasizes the availability of Learn programs for youths and stresses their values. Programs like Future Links where importance is placed on: Skill Development, Fitness and Health, Golf 101, Playing and Competition, Mind Matters and Life Skills. The Junior Golf Drive and Gala supports programs and values like these as they help to shape kids through the sport and to build the foundation for life success.

Initiatives such as club caddie programs, where individuals are introduced to the game, but also given the opportunity to work in the industry and be set up for future successes, will also benefit from the Junior Golf Drive and Gala.

In addition, the Junior Golf Drive and Gala will enhance the Golf Ontario Community initiative by providing support for Communities so that they can run their own community-specific Learn programs. These programs vary between communities based on what the specific needs of each community are.

The Junior Golf Drive and Gala looks to help foster the growth of golf programming in Ontario Schools. The National Golf in Schools Program will receive support at the provincial level. This allows more schools to become part of the program and more children be introduced to the game at a younger age.

Programs like Golf in Schools are an important element as they are run in conjunction with industry partners such as: Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada), Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada.

Much like the life skills that are learned in on-course programming, golf school programs also have a strong life lessons component that helps to use the sport of golf to build positive members of the community.

Supporting Ontario youth centres is another key element of the Junior Golf Drive and Gala. Partnering and supporting youth centres in the various communities across the province, is a way that golf can be an outlet for youths facing barriers and help them reach their full potential. The Junior Golf Drive and Gala benefits these community centres so that they can provide golf opportunities at their facility and run partner programs with Golf Ontario.

The Golf Ontario Scholarship Program has been supporting student golfers since its inception in 1996. The program has now given more than $150,000 to deserving students as the further their education at the post secondary level. Junior Golf Drive and Gala will provide further support to the Scholarship Program for students to further their education and careers.

In 2016 she was awarded the Helena Harbridge Award, part of the Golf Ontario Scholarship Program.

Golf In Schools

Whether it’s indoors or outdoors the Golf in Schools Program is bringing the game of golf to Canadian schools. This program has been developed for teachers to provide students the opportunity to develop aspects of “physical literacy” related to the sport of golf, and increase student knowledge and appreciation for the sport of golf.



Initiatives such as club caddie programs, where individuals are introduced to the game, but also given the opportunity to work in the industry and be set up for future successes, will also benefit from the Junior Golf Drive and Gala.



Golf Ontario is developing a community program which builds pathways for all participants to be introduced to golf and the opportunities it can provide to enhance their lives. This will allow for participation, caddy/employment programs and scholarships. Using golf, the program will instill life enhancing values that build character and promote healthy choices through golf.

Offered to young people from all walks of life, the program will help shape their futures by reinforcing values such as respect, perseverance, integrity and honesty. By incorporating these values and the rules of the game of golf, participants will learn important leadership and life skills.

This program will introduce golf to many participants for the first time. Some of Golf Ontario’s junior golf programs will be brought to communities which currently may not have any available, especially in economically challenged areas.



Exposure to golf will offer those involved the opportunity to learn these key values and help translate these skills into day-to-day life.
