Welcome to The Briars Golf Club16th Tee by Craig MacDonald

The Briars Golf Club is located just one hour from Toronto on the southern shores of Lake Simcoe. As you wind your way along historic Hedge Road, you immediately feel relaxed and understand the allure of this location.

Two Canadian design legends have combined to bring you a delightful dose of golf at its best. Stanley Thompson carved out the original nine holes in 1922. Robbie Robinson integrated a second nine in 1972, creating a seamless routing that may look fairly innocuous on paper, but will be appreciated for its subtle charms. The Briars is the epitome of the old-style course.

A great walking course, with its well manicured tree lined fairways and strategically placed bunkers, that narrow into undulating velvety slick greens, the Briars offers a challenge for all levels of golfers.

The Briars Golf Course has a small, capped membership base. Together we share a private and friendly golfing experience, void of long line-ups and inaccessible tee times.
While our course is beautiful and challenging, it is also designed to be friendly for all levels of play. We offer a well stocked pro shop, and a relaxed dining atmosphere which overlooks the golf course. Our outdoor patio offers wonderful vistas of the golf course.
We offer extensive Men’s, Ladies’, Mixed and Junior programs, various membership options and flexible membership payment plans. The Briars Golf Club has been known as the “Best Kept Secret” north of Toronto (but this is changing as people discover what a great golf Club it is, that is is very close to the GTA and all this and much more at very reasonable prices). Once you play here you will understand what this means. We invite you to join us and discover why our members chose the Briars as their home course.
