 Background

The High Park Golf Club was formed in 1896. It started as an 18-hole, 50-acre golf course located in Swansea Township. The club was moved to its current location in 1907. In 1912, the High Park Golf Club was renamed the Lakeview Golf Course. It has been described as one of the province’s finest golf courses and one of southern Ontario’s hidden gems. This designated heritage site has been host to many events in its 125 years, including hosting the Canadian Open twice.
