In 1999, the Niagara Escarpment was designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, making it one of only 12 in all of Canada. Why don’t you come to Lowville and discover not only a fun golf course but a destination you will return to again and again?
The Lowville Golf Club was originally built in 1973 by the Gudgeon Family who had lived on the family farm that was converted into the new golf course. The Gudgeon family had local roots and where well known and respected in Lowville as well as other local communities. They understood the newfound popularity of the game and the opportunity for growth that laid ahead as the forged into the new business of golf. They successfully operated the Golf Course as a family business until 1998, at which time it was sold to its current ownership group that operates it today.
The Current General Manager, Sandy White has a stake in this ownership group and oversees operations of the facility for them. He has done so since its inception in 1998 when the golf course was completely revamped in the first year of the new ownership to bring it up to date. Renowned Architect Dick Kirkpatrick transformed Lowville Golf Club into one of the gems of Southern Ontario. The natural beauty of the property has been combined with a continued commitment to creating a design to please all levels of golf. Our new green construction has produced a putting surface that will rival the area's best. Postcard scenery, challenging golf, friendly staff, and affordable prices have made us a must on your golf calendar.
In 2005 another major project was taken on by the ownership group and a brand new clubhouse was constructed. Our tasteful new clubhouse will now accommodate banquets of up to 150 people and the versatility of our building allows us to cater to groups as small as 8 to as large as 150 in comfortable cozy settings. Beautiful escarpment views of Mt. Nemo and Rattlesnake Point will complement any function. We provide a unique experience at an affordable price.
In 2012 another major construction project was completed. After struggling for decades with insufficient water holding ponds, Lowville was finally given permission from the Halton region conservation authority, Niagara escarpment commission, the City of Burlington & the ministry of natural resources to build a reservoir to ensure proper irrigation for the property.
It is quite obvious that the current management philosophy is to not rest on what we have done in the past but to continue to forge ahead in the future. Our commitment is to ensure we remain a leader in all areas of our business with a focus on the most important thing, YOU!!

I love the views and the price is quite reasonable. I just wanted to send a quick note to your greens department to commend them on the course conditions. Despite a challenging spring, the place was in great condition and a wonderful place to play any time of the season. Please pass on my message of kudos to the greens department. I also want to commend you on your program of SOPs to keep clients and staff safe. Thanks for everything and I look forward to my next visit to your wonderful facility.

Wanted to express our appreciation for the sensitive and caring manner in which my injury was handled this past Sunday. I was golfing when a stray golf ball struck my arm - your staff were very attentive and called an ambulance to assess the injury and whether it required attention - they did not think it was a fracture but advised that I go the emergency department of a hospital to make sure - again, my appreciation in the professional and caring manner in which this was handled.

Thank you so much for all of your help and support for our QEW / Alzheimer’s Golf tournament. Your generosity, advice, and support were deeply appreciated and gave us the confidence in knowing that “a master” was at our disposal to help our event stay on track. The course was in great shape, the staff friendly, the clubhouse beautiful and functional, and the weather you arranged was fantastic. Having said that, do you have the same Tuesday in September available next year? Thanks again Sandy,

Thanks very much for your support and gracious hospitality for our recent Bachelor Party/Golf tournament this past Saturday.

Thanks for a great luncheon today after our golf game - a perfect menu! The sweet potato fries where a fan favorite and were much appreciated by the 'gypsies' as they came off the course. The servers and the kitchen staff took such good care of us and we would like you to thank them all for us. The golf course was a pleasure to play and the conditions would match up to any facility within the region. Thank you for helping to make it a great day! We can't wait to be back once again.

A wonderful dinner please let the chef know!
Last evening a group of 6 of us took part in your Nine and Dine. Although we have participated in many throughout the region I had not yet played at Lowville. I want to say that that was one of the best dinners I have had. The pork was delicious, cooked perfectly and nicely complemented with the sauces. Please extend our thanks and congratulations to your chef and their staff on an amazing meal. We look forward to coming back again.

I have never been one to write reviews or testimonials but in this case I wanted everyone to know how much Lowville Golf Club went above and beyond when it came to our Golf Event last fall. From the moment we decided to host our event, Sandy and his team stepped up and assisted us in many of our planning decisions. The knowledge and understanding of how to run an event was so very obvious and they made it seem effortless. Lorna and the Food and Beverage department where also a great asset in planning and were totally involved right through to the execution the day of the event. Our meal was wonderful and people are still saying how much they enjoyed it. Ken and the boys in the Golf Shop helped us in sourcing prizes for the event and played a vital role in making the day go off without a hitch. Sandy we wanted you to know that we think you and the team do an exceptional job. THANKS.
Just a quick note to thank you very much for setting up a wonderful day for our group. The way it was set up for golf, dinner and payment was so easy. I got many positive comments about the all in price that they paid upon check in which made it very easy.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and loved the course. It was in great shape!
Your service staff were excellent so please thank them for me as well.
We will be looking to repeat the event next year. I will be in touch early in 2024.
