Historic, Prestigious, Brilliant, A classic
These words have all been said about Hamilton Golf and Country Club, whether it was by the best players in the world after tackling the course's tricky greens at the Canadian Open, writers and journalists who have been thrilled by walking its fairways, or by members and guests who have tested their games against it over the past century. They all agree: Hamilton is without peer in Canadian golf.
Few country clubs in North America match the natural beauty of Harry Shapland Colt's parkland masterpiece that sits along the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. Founded in 1894, it's one of the oldest and most prestigious clubs in the country, with a rich golf history and family connections to the local community that spans generations.
Set on incredible rolling land that has few rivals in terms of varied topography, HGCC's original 18 is a testament to what a timeless golf course can be. Designed by Harry Shapland Colt, the famed British architect behind courses like Royal Portrush and Muirfield, Hamilton has been considered one of the best parkland courses in North America for more than a century, and played host to the best golfers in the world.
HGCC offers a full complement of membership options to suit golfers of all ages and abilities. With a focus on the family, the club offers Trial Memberships, Introduction to Golf Memberships for Spouses, Traditional Junior Memberships, our new Junior Short Course Membership starting at age 7 and Social Memberships.
From intimate gatherings of 10 to 12 people in the private dining room to larger affairs for up to 200 people in the main dining room, the club is a perfect venue for hosting weddings and receptions, family parties, funeral receptions, business meetings, conferences and seminars. The club's rich history and timeless traditions, combined with luxurious and modern amenities create an ambiance that is second to none.
"It's as beautiful and as great a golf course as I had heard. I love the look of every hole out there," says Justin Rose, 2016 Olympic Golf gold medallist.
I have had the pleasure of playing Harry S. Colt's classic parkland layout for the past 30 years. I couldn't imagine being a member anywhere else.
