Donald Ross and Alister MacKenzie—names associated with the greatest courses in golf. Augusta. Pinehurst. Cypress Point. Oakland Hills. These are the courses that defined the game.

Only at St. Charles did their paths connect, with Ross and MacKenzie each creating nine holes that together merge into one of the best courses in Canada. Stanley Thompson protégé Norman Woods completed the club, adding nine holes to bring the total to 27. Having hosted the most prominent golf events in Canada, including the Canadian Open, the Canadian Women’s Open, the Canadian Seniors, as well as numerous other tournaments, St. Charles has been consistently tested by the best in the world.

In 2022, St. Charles undertook an ambitious restoration of its Ross and MacKenzie nines, with the reworking of its final nine, designed by Norman Woods, commencing in 2024.

Already a historic course—or “classy,” which is what Canadian Golf Hall of Fame writer Lorne Rubenstein called it, St. Charles remains a delightful walk in an unforgettable setting. As Canadian Women’s Open winner Michelle Wie said, St. Charles was “fun and interesting, and a good golf course for a tournament.”

Practice Facility

The practice area at St. Charles was already world class, with an indoor hitting and fitting centre, and expanses of grass teeing grounds for each member to work on their game. Now comes TrackMan Range—a revolutionary concept that will allow members to track their swings and the results while they practice.

TrackMan Range provides ball data on each swing you make, allowing members to work on the key elements of their game. Using the new system, members will have the opportunity to have every shot they hit tracked while they practice on an app on their phone.

This is a cutting-edge experience using the latest in technology. Want to play a friendly game on the range with another member? Want to understand how spin is limiting your distance? TrackMan Range will allow you to do just that—and St. Charles’ team of PGA of Canada professionals are engaged to help members get the most out of their golf games.
