Golfing on the Lane

There’s no such thing as off-season for golf players.

From April (or earlier) through October (or later, depending on weather), it’s playing season – a time to be on the course, and as often as possible. The rest of the time you’re working on your swing, your short game or arranging league play or golf getaways from the warm weather to come.

There are more than 40 courses around Niagara and the Niagara Falls Golf Club is consistently ranked among the best of them.

Just off Lundy’s Lane on Garner Road in the west end of the city, the par 72 18-hole course is a lush green nestled quietly among a tree-filled, quiet rural setting. It’s suitable for all level of players with its delicately manicured greens and strategic water courses.

From the tips, the course measures at 6,135 yards but there are multiple tee boxes for golfers to choose from and the course offers 80 brand new gas-powered carts for members and guests to use.

Memberships are available now and league openings are posted on the golf club’s website. And try out the on-site restaurant and dining room.

As to the course itself, the 17th hole is ranked as the third-best hole in the Niagara Peninsula. The website ScoreGolf.com notes the course was opened in 1966 as a nine-hole before later expanding.

“With the University of Guelph analyzing soil samples, Scott’s Golf Turf program and the expertise of our greenskeeping staff, we’re confident Niagara Falls Golf Club turf is rates among the best,” the website reports.

As well, the continuous cart path winding through the course reduces fairway traffic.
