1950

Course Construction Begins

In the summer of 1950, course construction began on a wooded lot near the shores of Lake St. George. Mr Leeder, the orignal owner and builder, had a very difficult time building the course. The land was covered in waist high grass, dense forest and massive rocks. The venture cost Mr. Leeder all the money he could raise. He sold his Toronto home and car to finance the project. When asked about this, he simply said "Owning a golf course is all i've ever wanted."

1952

Opening Day

The course opened in the fall of 1952. The original clubhouse was located close to where #9 north tee sits today. At this time, the course offered a full season mens membership for $20 and a ladies membership for $15. Green fees on the weekend were $1.50, and only $1.00 on weekdays!

1954

Clubhouse Opens

In 1952 and 1953 the clubhouse was a small log cabin located beside the current 9th tee on the north course. In 1954 a new clubhouse opened in the middle of the property. This building is now the pro shop, snack bar and bar.

1968

Course Renovations

In 1968 Canadian Golf Hall of Fame member Robbie Robinson was hired to design and build an additional nine holes. Before starting on the new course, he renovated some holes on the north course. His renovations to the north course included:

  • Adding two new holes (2 & 5 north)
  • Reshaping 4 north fairway
  • Combining two holes to create 6 north
  • Pushing back 9 north green 120 yards to its current location
  • Rebuilding tee decks on 1, 3, 4, 7, 8 and 9
More information about Robbie Robinson can be found on Canadian Golf Traveller.
1970

New Owner

Bob Barr, a local entrepreneur, purchased the existing course as well as a large bird farm adjacent to the property. This bird farm would eventually become the south and west courses.

1971

South Course Construction

After completing the north course renovations, Robbie Robinson started construction on the new south course. Members of the course volunteered to help clear trees and rocks from the land.

1972

South Course Opens

In the summer of 1972, the south course was opened, making Lake St. George one of the first 18 hole courses in the area.

1979

New Owners

After years of financial trouble and multiple owners, George Louth purchased the course in 1979. George had an influential career in the Ontario golf industry. He played an important role in the construction and management of Twenty Valley Golf Club in Vineland, Ontario. He built the course, and later became the Head Pro, General Manager and Superintendent. He continued to run the course before leaving to take the position of Head Pro and Superintendent at Sawmill Golf Club. Georges father, Les Louth, was the head pro at Oakville Golf Club for over 40 years. The Louth family still owns and manages the course today.

1980s

Course Improvements

In the early 1980s, George, along with his son Greg, took on many course improvements. Irrigation and drainage were completed throughout all 18 holes, along with several new tees and greens. A clubhouse addition and renovation also took place.

1999

West Course Construction

Bob Moote and George Louth designed the west course in 1999. Tree clearing began in the fall of 1999, and the new course would take three years to build.

2002

West Course Opens

The west course officially opened in July of 2002. The west and south courses became the regular rotation for golfers playing 18 holes.
