At the 36-hole GreyHawk Golf Club on the eastern edge of Ottawa, you can savour two distinctly different golf experiences in one great location.
Appropriately enough for the National Capital Region, the clubhouse and the Talon Course are classic Canadiana, and reflect the atmosphere and rugged beauty of the region. On the other hand, the Predator Course is like a visit to heathland courses of Scotland.
A parkland course designed by Montreal's Darrel Huxham, Talon provides an intriguing mix of challenges and looks. Dense hardwoods frame a number of fairways, while more open holes are defined by wetlands, bold bunkering, fescue-covered contours, colourful ornamental grasses and elevated tee complexes.
Designed by Paul Takahashi, Predator is wide and inviting, peppered with knolls and hollows, humps and bumps, and fescue rough. The large and contoured greens are protected by engaging bunkering and bentgrass collection areas that will test your touch and creativity.
A new $5 million, 17,100-square-foot clubhouse has a Canadian feel reminiscent of frontier homes with log siding and tiger-stripe natural stone. Inside, you can enjoy that Old World feel in the Irish-inspired Black Pint Pub, or gather outside on the 1,750-square-foot covered patio.
