  • Islington Golf

    Hi all,

    Looking for a bit of information on the culture/club life at Islington - specifically for someone in their mid-twenties. I am interested in joining but want to ensure that it is easy to get a game (I am aware of the no-tee time thing - but how open are members to playing with someone new/how often do groups show up without a full foursome etc) and that there is a good core group of intermediates/members who are open to playing with intermediates who like to play often. I appreciate that some people might not want to share their experiences on a public thread, so please feel free to send me a PM.

    Thank you!

    Private courses usually let you play a practice round before deciding I definitely recommend taking them up on that offer.

          Not sure what else you're looking for in a private golf club but Islington's practice facilities are sub standard. If you're willing to go a little further west, check out Brampton GC, it 's very accessible from 401, 407 and 410.They have a solid number of intermediates, amazing practice facilities and a good trial deal happening for this year.

            was not impressed with the practice area here. There is no real range to hit balls. They have an enclosed hitting net which is about 75 yards long and probably 30 yards in height. Not sure if this has changed in the past few years since I last played there, but this would be something that would probably prevent me from joining

                I think the pros were using actual holes at Islington as a 'practice range" for the CO held at St. Georges?

                  Yes, they turn 1, 2, 7 into a driving range. It was a joke

                    Gotta do what ya gotta do.....I guess the joke would have been the areas of the holes that were chewed up with divots.

                      I believe Islington gets $100,000 for the week. Not all bad.

                        I meant my post was a joke. The club paid for the green & bunker work with that cheque

                            No Idea. My father-in-law is a member as Islington, which is where I got that info.

                              Don't know how accurate....I heard about $1-$2M as a 'rental' to the host venue from the PGA tour....although Golf Canada runs the CO with assistance from the PGA tour....I doubt GC has the coffers to pay that sum out.
