Old Drovers Run
Named for a strip of land in the rolling costal meadows of Scotland,that while the game of golf was born, farmers were mustering their stock out to pasture on a "drovers run".
This 18 hole golf course was designed by Graham Cooke International Golf Course Architects (Cooke) who has indicated that the golf course so far is “very high in links flavour”, and when completed should be the most “links like” course in Canada.
Cooke has compared the project in the ilk of the notable “Nairn” Golf Links in Scotland, and has expressed the opinion that “Old Drovers Run” will be an exceptional and unique Canadian course.
The design may be described as a true “hard-links” style featuring tall fescue grasses and brambles off the fairways, large undulating greens and deep walled pot bunkers. The mostly treeless course is designed to be undulating through nature with extreme grade changes off the fairways. The multi teed design was planned to accommodate players of varying skill level.
