Wildfire Golf Club

LAKEFIELD, ONTARIO, CANADA

Architect Tom McBroom masterfully completed the finishing touches at Wildfire in the spring of 2003 and it fully opened on August 1. Very little has changed as the 6,745-yard, par-72 layout has continued to mature, although the routing was altered slightly when the elegant lakeside clubhouse opened in 2006. Old No. 17 now plays as No. 18 and the old No. 18 is the first hole, as both are connected beautifully to the clubhouse for the perfect start and finish to every round. The course features four sets of challenging tees ranging from 5,130 to 6,750 yards with a fascinating blend of five par-3s and five par-5s that gives the course added character and strategic options. The meandering forested layout is extremely walkable, a true strength of the design, and only returns to the welcoming clubhouse when the last hole is played.
