THE MARK O'MEARA COURSE AT GRANDVIEW
Two-time major champion Mark O'Meara knows a thing or two about golf courses and that insight is obvious to anyone fortunate enough to play the Mark O'Meara Course at Grandview.
Winding its way through the granite, forest and wetlands of the incomparable Muskoka region, and with tees ranging from 7,065 yards to 4,750, Grandview is a delight to play. The course, site of the 2002 Telus Skins Game won by Sergio Garcia over Vijay Singh, John Daly and Mike Weir, and the 2002 Canadian Tour Ontario Open, is accentuated by a stunning clubhouse, and a nine-hole Academy Course.
Feature Hole: # 17
The Mark O'Meara Course is a classic risk/reward course and this hole, simply named "Short" is a perfect example. From the blue tees it plays 280 yards as a par 4. The safe play is a 180 yard tee shot over the fairway bunker leaving a short approach to a well guarded green. The more exciting shot is to attempt to reach the green or at least get it close with hazard all of the way of the left, a large rock outcropping short and right of the green and only a small opening in front of the green. Roll the dice and make your choice!
