Nestled in the Blue Mountains, the Golf Club at Lora Bay offers a playable round of golf that pays tribute to historic rural Ontario. The dramatic course design was dictated by the dynamic forested shoreline of the brilliant Georgian Bay.
“We are thrilled to host the PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada presented by Callaway Golf,” said Lora Bay’s head golf professional Nate Clingersmith. “There’s nothing quite like the Blue Mountains and Lora Bay in the fall.”
Co-designed by the former No. 1-ranked golfer in the world Tom Lehman and famed architect Thomas McBroom, the golf course has received numerous accolades over the years.
