HISTORY / ABOUT US
In most cases we always look forward to see where we are going, yet at times it is nice to look back to see where we have come from. Take a look at a little of our history and imagine how this facility got its start.

The origin of Flamborough Hills Golf and Country Club goes back to 1961 when Jack and Ann Windsor shaped 18 Championship holes out of a dairy farm in the quiet hamlet of Copetown, Ontario. The Club opened for play under the name of Windsor Park and remained that way until a change of ownership in 1985 brought about the current name. In 1994, a third nine was created and was aptly named the Lakes course. The original 18 hole combination is now referred to as the Hills and Woods courses giving Flamborough Hills 27 Championship holes to challenge golfers of all skill levels.
August 2007 saw another change of ownership to Tom de Jonge. Tom is committed to keeping the course moving forward with a goal of making Flamborough Hills one of the premier golf facilities in southern Ontario.
2009 saw the beginning of this with the creation of a new hole on the Woods course. Woods #2, a Par 3 measuring 128 yards from the Championship tees and 90 yards from the women's tees, will become the signature hole at Flamborough Hills. From an elevated tee deck, this hole requires proper club selection as it is all carry over a water hazard to a narrow kidney shaped green.
This hole was created as part of Tom's plan to give the patrons of Flamborough Hills what they have been asking for - eliminating the three Par 3's in a row on the Woods course. 2010 saw the construction of another new hole on the Woods course to complete this part of his vision for Flamborough Hills. A long Par 4 with a tree lined fairway that doglegs slightly to the left as you approach the green will make any course combination at Flamborough Hills an exciting challenge. We hope you enjoy the challenge as much as we enjoyed creating it!
From the fully stocked pro shop to our fine dining, Flamborough Hills Golf and Country Club is a great place to be and we look forward to seeing you soon.
