Haliburton Golf Driving Range
Haliburton Highlands Golf Course
Our Haliburton golf club is nestled amongst the towering pines and rolling hills of beautiful Haliburton Highlands. This 9 hole golf club is one of the area’s oldest golf courses (dates back to 1932).
The course’s short yardage (2,425) causes golfers to make the mistaken assumption that this is an easy track. Those familiar with the golf course know that the uneven terrain, hidden hazards and often obscured greens combine to create a challenge capable of testing the lowest handicap golfers. Contact (705)-457-2233
Pinestone Golf Course
Carved from the mineral rich glacial till of the Haliburton Highlands, Pinestone Golf Course has established itself as one of Ontario’s most challenging and rewarding golf destinations. Built in 1974, our 18 hole, par 71 measures 6,024
yards and was designed by prominent golf course architect Jack Davidson.
