Caledon Woods is a scenic, inspiring walk in the pastoral hills and valleys of the Caledon countryside, just north of Toronto.
Opened in 2003, Caledon Woods replaced the 27-hole Bolton Golf Club, so it delivers modern features and top conditions in the mature surroundings of a grand old club.
Architect Paul Takahashi kept the classic parkland character intact but introduced links-style elements with tight lies and crowns around engaging greens - among the region's best - that have a wide range of slope and contour.
Given the heaving Caledon landscape, uneven fairway lies are common and there are some challenging tee shots where moving the ball to fit the hole provides you with an advantage. Although not long at 6,415 yards, most holes let you grip it and rip it.
The character of the clubhouse fits the rural setting. It sits atop the highest point on the property and invites you in for an after-round drink or for Sunday brunch. The large patio also beckons, offering scenic views of the lovely Caledon Hills.
The combination of natural beauty and shot-making challenge provides Caledon Woods with the charm of a grand old club but everything you expect for 21st Century golf.
