Pheasant Run Golf Course and Country Club

By: Leaftech

You might not think that a city like Toronto, the very definition of urban sprawl, would have room anywhere near it for a first rate golf course and country club such as Pheasant Run. Located less than a hour's drive from Toronto's downtown core, the Pheasant Run golf courses, at first blush, resemble the rolling valleys of the interior of British Columbia than anything to be found in Ontario, let alone so near to the city. However, Pheasant Run is a reality right in the Heartland; let's take a bit of a look at it.

History

Pheasant Run is a golf course and country club with a solid history behind it. The land was first developed for recreational purposes in the late 1970s, on land that had the feel of the Muskoka regions more than the typical surrounding plots. The gates to the course and club were opened to much fanfare in 1981, and since that time Pheasant Run has enjoyed increasing success and popularity among those who love to play the game.

The courses

Today, Pheasant Run encapsulates three different courses, each with a unique appeal to individual golfers. The Southern Uplands features terrain that is easier to traverse than the other two, although the skill required to make par shots will still be an adequate challenge for most golfers. The Midlands course is truly one of the most challenging in Ontario both in terms of fitness and golf expertise. The elevation of this course changes dramatically, with tree lined fairways and difficult par 5s that provide challenges to even the most experienced golfers. Finally, the Highlands course offers some of the best views of the surrounding areas that can be afforded, from a course that still has multiple elevation change and provides a concentration on target golf.

Like most high end golf courses, Pheasant Run includes a fully developed and supplied country club, very useful for corporate events and other social gatherings in their spacious, modern rooms. Membership to the club and the course can be purchased on a weekly or monthly basis.
