If you fancy a round of golf, or are looking to play on a long-term basis, below we’re featured some of the main golf clubs in Kingston, Ontario.
Started out in 1999, the Landings Golf Course came to be as a result of businessman Jim Barber’s pitch to a number of investors interested in the project. Built upon land that previously belonged to the airport, the 18-hole golf course was helped to fruition with the help of the aforementioned investors, and also the money of respected cardiologist, and keen golfer Dr. Parker. Serving as a training centre as well as a place to practise your swing with friends, there are many lessons on offer and opportunities to develop your game and take it to the next level here. With arguably the best programme for junior golfers in the city of Kingston, and hugely popular men’s and women’s nights drawing a large number of people, the Landings Golf Course has plenty to offer.
With 18 holes, and a par of 63, the course at Landings is just shy of the regular length golf course making it an executive course. Sporting a full practise range looking toward the airport of Kingston on the Western end of the city, the course occupies 4200 yards in total. Located ideally in the city, the course is about as green as they come, and provides the perfect setting for a leisurely round of golf, whatever the season. As for events, there are a range of theme nights at the club such as Men’s night in which you can compete over 9 holes, with a steak dinner included in the $45 entry fee and prizes up for grabs too.
In terms of what you can expect in terms of the day rates at the club, 18 holes will generally cost you $37 and 9 holes will be $27 (per golfer). The prices given are for adults, prices for juniors are $23 and $17 respectively, and there are specials throughout the week that will save you money provided you tee off at the designated times. With regards to membership, as of 2018 the fees are as follow: $1,295.00 for the adult full 7 day package and $1,075.00 for adult weekday. Membership includes discounts on themed nights, free pull carts and driving range discounts and more.

Founded originally as a sports center with recreational facilities and curling in 1961, it wasn’t until 10 years later in 1971 that a 9-hole golf course was added to the property. Fast forward another 14 years to 1985 and the Garrison Golf & Curling Club became what it is today, with regards to the 18-hole golf course it is home to. Whilst a military-favoured facility, the club is open to the public and boasts a clubhouse, bar, locker rooms, and more, catering to all sizes of parties. Striving to provide the best experience possible for their members, the club has many membership options to choose from, taking into account your investment in the sport of golf.
With a course that the club claims is accessible to both the amateur and the pro golfer, the golfing experience on offer here is both challenging and rewarding in equal measure. A well-maintained course is par for this club and something which will make your experience more satisfying, combined with the degree of difficulty of the holes. Some of the other elements that make a round of golf at the Garrison Golf & Curling Club so enticing and enjoyable are the tournaments organised by the club, and the bunker snack cart which heightens the leisurely nature of the game.
Now let’s take a look at the day rates and membership fees you can expect at the club. For a single adult, a round of 18 holes will cost $36.25, and for 9 it will be $24.25. A junior playing 18 holes will be $26.50, and $18 for 9 holes. These prices depend on your status with the club, and can be discounted with membership. Membership rates range from $1095.00 for a regular membership to $1470.00 for the associate membership.

Established in 1917, the Cataraqui Golf & Country Club became host to an 18-hole golf course in 1925. The course was subject to a major overhaul in 1931 as prestigious golf course architect Stanley Thompson got involved with the project and was contracted to redesign it. When the course re-opened 2 years later in 1933 it was met with high praise and acclaim, eventually going on to rank #57 in a list of Canada’s best courses in 2006. A club that has been host to many tournaments such as the Ontario Amateur Championship and the Canadian PGA Championship, the Cataraqui Golf & Country Club is certainly held in high regard within the community of Kingston, and beyond.
In terms of what the club can offer you as a golfer, the facilities include lockers, club storage and more. If the fact that the golf course was designed by a world-renowned golf course architect and rated so highly within the courses on offer in Canada isn’t enough to convince you of the quality of the course, then maybe the many pro golfers that have taken to the course in tournaments is enough to sway you. The course is wonderfully located, surrounded by white pines and rolling hills and sporting varied topography, to make your rounds suitably challenging.
