The Ridge at Manitou

Opened 2005 on Manitouwabing Lake, Ontario

The uniqueness of The Ridge at Manitou lies in its glorious site and remote location on the shores of Manitouwabing Lake deep in the heart of central Ontario cottage country. An instant classic remarkable for its great beauty and solitude, The Ridge offers significant swings in elevation, classic bunkering inspired by the great Alastair Mackenzie and fairways defined by dense forests. The course begins at picturesque Manitouwabing Lake and eases golfers into the round and then gradually ratchets up the challenge and excitement. The 18th finishes with one of the most memorable par 5s you will ever see.

“A magnificent golf course in a magical setting.”
 James McCarten, Ontario Golf

“At The Ridge, McBroom, in many ways has created his homage to Canada’s golfing heritage. The course uses a very Stanley Thompson-esque routing and the designer even captures some Thompson-like shapes.”
Robert Thompson,

“There is a real feeling of privacy out here that you don’t get at other courses. Every hole is unique and memorable. McBroom has designed a course that people want to play again and again, and that is not easily done!”
Drew Rachar, General Manager/Course Superintendent
