Golf at the Angus Glen Golf Club offers beauty, challenge, first-class service and maybe best of all, variety.
Angus Glen Golf Club is a public golf course and is known internationally for hosting PGA Tour events on both of its championship golf courses.
Each time you choose to play Angus Glen, you are walking the same fairways that the world’s best golfers have competed on.
The South Course hosted the 2002 Canadian Open, when John Rollins defeated Justin Leonard and Neal Lancaster in an exciting sudden death playoff.
Capturing the title for the second consecutive year Jim Furyk out duelled Vijay Singh on the North Course to win the 2007 Canadian Open.
With two different challenges waiting, Angus Glen will provide a memorable day of play for all!

Greens were in fantastic condition, There were no brown or bare spots and no ball marks or weeds. The greens strike a good balance between speed and difficulty without being too tricky. The rough and bunkers make hitting the green critical to producing a low score.
The fairways are in better condition then the greens at most other courses. A rich green carpet unfurls before you. Yardage stakes are provided for 250, 200, 150 and 100 yards and are easily identified (a concept too difficult for most courses to grasp). Fairways are well contoured and bunkers are well placed so a good tee shot is critical.
The tees like the rest of the course are in excellent condition. My only issue with the tees is that there a few blind tee shots. A few balls found trouble even though they were well struck. You really need to know which direction to line up your tee shot as some times it is not apparent. With a second round at Angus Glen I won't make the same mistakes.
The course is well laid out on the property. There are two championship quality 18s on site. The designer made good use of natural terrain and contours. There are many elevation changes off the tee and on approach shots. Each hole offers a unique view and challenge. No two shots are the same. The course has a unique design in that it can host a Canadian Open and provide a challenge for the pros but at the same time can be set up for the average golfer to have an enjoyable round.
The regular rate for the course is $170 which includes a GPS equipped golf cart. The rate on weekend afternoons drops to $120. $120 may seem like a lot to some but for the GTA this is a vary reasonable price for a course of this high quality condition, stature and reputation. I definitely would play either 18 again.
For a course that has hosted the Canadian Open I was expecting a more difficult test. The fairways are rather generous off the tee. A few of the par 5s are easily reachable in two and the par 3s are playable. If the fairways were tighter, greens faster and hitting from the "Canadian Open" tees would provide a much sterner test for the average golfer. A little local knowledge would reduce the number of misplayed shots. With the way the course was setup, it is a very playable course for the average golfer.
The course is nestled between farmlands and a bustling metropolis in the greenbelt of the GTA. The course is for the most part a links style course with few trees to block your view. A panoramic view of the course is seen from a few spots. A few holes are lined with housing developments.
There are lots of friendly staff buzzing around to help you unload your clubs shuttle you back and forth to the club house give directions and provide refreshment and beverage service. A beverage cart was on each nine and there is a halfway snack shack at the 10th tee to keep your round moving along. Marshals were present but not pushy. We wanted to book our tee time to take advantage of the afternoon discount rate and the pro shop let us get on the course early with the discounted rate.
The clubhouse is spectacular. There are several large meeting rooms and banquet halls available. There was a golf tournament with maybe 100 people, a large wedding and regular Saturday golfers. All were accommodated easily. The place didn't seem crowded at all. The clubhouse is well designed and easy to find your way around. There is a beautiful deck overlooking the 18th green that offers good views of both courses.
The facility has a good driving range, a putting green, and another green to practice your short game. Directions around the course are easy to follow and well marked. Each cart is equipped with a GPS so there is no guessing yardages.
Angus Glen has a reputation for great service and deservedly so. The conditions are some of the best I have ever played and the layout is tough but fair for the average golfer. It must be a sign of the economic times because for a Saturday the course was not that busy. There was a tournament on the North course while the South course was open the course was not busy at all. There was no one ahead or immediately behind us so we played our round at a good pace with no waiting on any tees. Overall the course offers a lot for the average golfer looking for a round a higher end course.
