When Sutton Creek Golf Club opened in 1990, it signaled a new direction for public golf in Windsor-Essex County in southwestern Ontario.
A park land design, Sutton Creek plays hard and fast, with lightning quick greens at the end of perfectly manicured fairways. The 18-hole layout has 60 strategically placed bunkers, seven expansive ponds, and the county’s McLaren Drain winding through it.
With a well designed mix of short, medium-length, and long holes, strategy is at a premium. At 6,792 yards from the back tees, the par-72 course presents a true test of golf as it was meant to be played. However, the four sets of tees and generous landing areas make it an enjoyable experience for everyone who plays it.
Sutton Creek is truly bold, beautiful, and breathtaking all at once; a brand of golf rarely experienced.
