An ideally situated and mature course, Marine Drive has been the home of many champions. While the players at Marine Drive have received much acclaim, so too, has the course itself. Designed by A.V. Macan, at just over 6,300 yards from the blue tees, it is certainly known for its difficulty as opposed to its length, but at par 71, many players will tell you it plays longer than expected. It has certainly earned the respect of many a fine player as well as many of golf’s top pundits. Lorne Rubenstein, renowned golf writer for The Globe & Mail, rated Marine Drive one of the ten best classic courses in Canada. Score Magazine rated Marine in its top 50 and, in a survey rating Canada’s toughest holes, our infamous 17th ranked 9th.
So as you step onto the first tee of Marine Drive, whether it is for a Club Championship, the Marine Drive Amateur or a friendly foursome, be reminded of the fine history of the Club, the Founders, the Legends, the Builders and the Winners – all of them Champions.
