The National Golf Club of Canada was the highest ranked Ontario course in a recent SCOREGolf ranking

It’s been a couple weeks now since the Top 100 rankings by Canadian national publication SCORE Golf were revealed so it seems like the right time to talk about it.

After reading it, (if you have not the link is embedded above) you’ve now had time to digest it, debate it with golfing friends, and maybe form a calmly thought out opinion on the rankings.

Ontario, as many of you are aware, has both the highest overall population levels (13.6 million as of 2014) and golf course levels (822 according to the 2015 Golf Canada/PGA of Canada Facilities Report) of any Canadian province. It makes sense then that is also holds a dominant spot in the SCORE rankings.

In total, 53 Ontario golf courses made it into the top 100 list this year.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the hits and misses (for you) with your comments below.

Who do you think is missing? Raked too high? Ranked too low?

    Perhaps you could list the public/semi-private courses in Ontario that are in the top 100.

      That is the complete list of all in Ontario, no matter what their status is. You’d like to see which are private and public? (Ed. note: I have updated the list to reflect which courses are privte)

    Small difference, but can never figure out why Hoot always outranks Heathlands at Osprey Valley. IMHO, Heathlands is a top 20. On another note, St Thomas’ drop is a farce…improvements made there are fantastic.

    We’d love to have some raters come out to play Oshawa Golf & CC. It’s a 110 year old Stanley Thompson design that has a lot of interesting holes and is kept in great condition all season long. I’ve played quite a few of the other courses on the list and in my opinion we easily belong in the Top 100, but since so few raters have visited us we don’t get much credit in the rankings. The ratings are a bit artificial in this regard, since courses that get visited more often by more course raters rank higher than courses that don’t get visited. It’s not really an all encompassing ranking.
