Fall is in the air. Kids are going back to school soon. But there is still lots of time for golf in the area. Black Diamond, Baxter Creek, and Wolf Run Golf Club are all within 10 km of Bethany.

Black Diamond Golf Course has been referred to as the “Best Kept Secret”. It’s no wonder, when you consider the course’s features outlined by GolfNow.com…

“Set on rolling terrain and cut through dense forest for the most part, Black Diamond is set amidst tree-lined rolling fairways, fescue, sculptured mounds, multiple elevation changes, spring-fed ponds, 70 bunkers and a double-green. Black Diamond features five doglegs to the left and five more to the right, twisting and turning brilliantly. It will reward shot makers who can control their ball flight, but there’s ample room on generous fairways for players of all skill levels. Four ponds come into play on holes No. 6, 8, 11, 14 and 17, but with no forced carries over creeks or wetlands it has a high degree of playablity for the average golfer. Golfers are faced with a dramatic finish requiring varying degrees of uphill shots to the greens on holes No. 15, 16 and 18.”

The course is located at 705 Pontypool Road, Kawartha Lakes L0A 1K0; Phone (705) 932-4653.

Baxter Creek Golf Course

According to Canadian Golf Magazine, Baxter Creek is “One of the best values in all of Canada.” The course provides high quality at affordable rates. The land was originally the Larmer family farm. The character of the farm was retained while creating the exciting features of the property.  Rolling fairways, greens and bunkers reflect a “Highland” or “Big Sky” flavour interspersed with holes meandering through an established woodlot, naturalized areas and along the picturesque Baxter Creek. And the 19th hole completes the picture with a full practice and training facility, a unique 19th island green bonus hole and full service club house.

With the weather finally heating up there is one thing on a lot of our minds: FORE! And the friendly staff at Black Diamond Golf Club are working hard to get their course ready for the 2015 golf season. The news that they are opening today is certainly music to golf lovers’ ears.

Black Diamond Golf Club near Bethany Village in the City of Kawartha Lakes.

Black Diamond Golf Club is located 8 minutes from Bethany and an hour from Toronto. It is located 20 minutes north of the 401 and off of HWY 115 (Porter Road Exit 26).

Black Diamond is a par 72 Championship golf course with four tee decks, so no matter your skill level you can enjoy their spectacularly laid out course. An 18-hole facility which ScoreGolf.com calls “an excellent local course,” Black Diamond Golf Club is carved out of dense forest and is nestled in the foothills of the Kawartha Oakridges Moraine giving it a much more wooded and natural feel than some courses located further south in Ontario. Set on rolling terrain, Black Diamond sits amidst tree-lined rolling fairways, fescue grass, sculptured mounds, multiple elevation changes, spring-fed ponds, 70 bunkers, and a double green.

When Black Diamond Golf Club was designed, the aim was to excite and challenge, rewarding golfers who can control their ball flight, while still being forgiving to players of all skill levels with ample room on generous fairways. Four ponds come into play on holes No. 6, 8, 11, 14 and 17, but with no forced carries over creeks or wetlands it has a high degree of playability for the average golfer.

Golfers are faced with a dramatic finish requiring varying degrees of uphill shots to the greens on holes No. 15, 16 and 18. Black Diamond also features five doglegs to the left and five more to the right, providing plenty of challenges and opportunities to strategize.
