Located in the historic town of Ancaster, Ontario, near the city of Hamilton, Heron Point Golf Links combines diverse elements to challenge any advanced golfer. In a nod to the rolling terrain of traditional Scottish and Irish golf courses, architect Thomas Broom has strategically inscribed his course among lush parkland, towering trees, and expansive wetlands. Regarded by golfers as an impressive course graced by beautiful views, Heron Point has hosted prominent Canadian Tours, including the 1997 Canadian Masters, where a young Mike Weir launched his PGA career. This 18-hole golf course, built in 1992 in the Carolina style of golfing, is currently ranked by SCORE Magazine as 52nd in Canada. An exclusive private club, Heron Point Golf Links offers a comfortable clubhouse, well-stocked pro shop, and many other amenities.
