Opened 2004 in London, Ontario

A first-class public-access course built partly on a former gravel pit, FireRock demonstrates Tom McBroom's skill in creating whimsical golf courses that harmonize with the natural setting. FireRock is a lovely walk that traverses subtle elevation changes and hills adorned with fescue grasses. The course is distinctive for the gnarly, random-grassed edges of the bunkers reminiscent of an earlier design era. As for whimsy, the long par four 4th sports a green split by a large odd knoll that forces players to strategize how they will approach the hole. FireRock's finishing hole – a 454-yard downhill par four that doglegs around a woodlot to a green perched on a hillside – is one of the most dramatic closers in Canadian golf.

Awards & Accolades

“McBroom's bunkering technique makes FireRock a real treat.”
 Robert Thompson,

“FireRock boasts nearly 100 acres of two-metre tall prairie and Savannah grasses that dominate the course with environmentally-protected wildflowers, herbs and shrubs. It’s Monet meets McBroom – a painting come alive.”
