You might remember I have written about South Pond Farms in the past.

In 2006 Danielle French bought a 60-acre farm in Pontypool – a big decision considering she had four young daughters. The farm was in need of major repairs and rebuilding. She did not have a clear vision of what she wanted to accomplish exactly, but one thing led to another and the dream took on a life of its own.

The barn was in shambles, but the kitchen was created first. After all, it was going to be a source of income. The farm began to flourish, producing vegetables that could be sold and used for her unique culinary events.

Danielle now offers farm to table dinners and events that connect her farm to the local community. If that were not enough, she is the host of the Taste of the Country on Netflix.

You can visit the farm for lunch and hike the trails; have your wedding at the farm; enjoy cooking classes or learn how to make a wreath; plan and design a kitchen garden…

Another unique series of events are the ‘Full Moon Suppers’ – “The Full Moon Suppers are served in different locations on the farm and celebrate the close ties between traditional agriculture and lunar rhythms.” 

Mark your calendar for Full Moon Suppers in May, June, July, August and September.

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.

Wolf Run Golf Club

The Club has been in operation since 1991 and includes the 18 hole golf course, driving range, restaurant and banquet facility. The course provides 6,716 yards from the longest tee for a par 72. And everyone can play! Wolf Run includes 5 sets of tee positions on every hole. If you like to use your long irons, no problem – there are five par 4’s in a row on the back nine.
