You don’t need to travel far from home to experience some of Ontario’s most thrilling outdoor activities, breathtaking landscapes, and quaint country hamlets. Ontario’s Highlands has all these attractions and more, a short ½ hour drive from downtown Ottawa—or 2 ½ hours worth of singing your favourite driving songs as you travel along our scenic highways from Toronto.



Golf gurus testify that the game of golf is as much a mental game as a physical one. In Ontario’s Highlands, many of our golf courses reside outside quiet hamlets with tree-lined fairways in a peaceful environment. It’s the perfect setting for you to focus on your swing and bring emotional stillness to your game. We offer a number of courses with varying terrain and difficulty level suitable for players who have been teeing off for decades as well as those who have just recently picked up a club.
