“Golfing in and about Thornbury”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

While formerly only a ski destination, the Blue Mountains offers a premier golf experience. I recommend spending a week hitting the Scottish Links course at Cobble Stone, just north of Owen Sound and the equally beautiful standard courses at Lora Bay and the Georgian Bay club which are located on each side of Thornbury. The latter two courses are amongst the best in Ontario and have hosted Pro-Am tournaments and the Gretzy golf Classic. If you tire of these courses there are at least 4 other courses within a half hour drive from your base at the Village at Blue. The food experience is memorable at Cobble Stone and Lora Bay. The Village at Blue has a number of restaurants to suit every taste. You can take a break from golfing and visit Coffin Ridge Winery whose wines have won several awards.

“tough course but fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Big greens, tough to read. Course is in great shape. Too many bunkers so stay out! Nice staff. Practice range and putting area are a bonus

“Fantastic View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

My wife and I spent a few days in the area and golfed a couple of the courses. Our favourite was Lora Bay. The great clubhouse was the first treat and the greeting by the clubhouse staff was perfect. Tee times are 10 Minutes apart so there is no backups. Our favourite hole by far was the par 3 14th hole It was a 175 yard hole but there was a drop of 200 feet from tee to green. The greens were fast and true. Would play it again in a heartbeat.
