The Best Stay & Play Getaways in Ontario

The 2022 Golf Season is almost here. To help you plan your golf getaways, we’ve made a list of stunning golf courses throughout the province at Ontario Resorts.


The Resorts golf courses come in all shapes and sizes; championship courses, well-manicured greens, courses carved out of the escarpment and rugged landscape that surrounds itself…something for every skill level.


Pro shops are fully stocked with golf apparel, balls, tees and everything you would need to have a successful round. Be sure to swing by the pro shop before your round, maybe even grab a souvenir to take home and share with family and friends. After your round, don’t forget the 19th hole to tally up the scores and find out who’s buying the next round as you reminisce over food and drinks about the fun you just had.


Ladies, don’t forget to squeeze in a round with your girls’ spa getaway – we recommend golf the first day and spa the next to truly relax those muscles![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
