    St Georges Golf and Country Club was founded in 1929 by Robert Home Smith and Sir Edward Beatty it was formerly known as the The Royal York Golf Club. The golf club is currently rated in the top three in Canada and amongst the top 100 in the world. Stanley Thompson one of North America's most renowned golf architects was commissioned to design the course layout. Thompson was coming off great success at Jasper Park and Banff Springs. The Canadian Pacific Railway, who had footed the bill for what was then most expensive course ever built, was delighted with Thompson and hired him again to design St. George's.

    In 1957 a curling facility was added for winter sports fans, providing six sheets of ice, its own lounge, dining and bar facilities, locker rooms and an office. This addition attracted new members and made the year-round operation of the clubhouse feasible. Members undertook the purchase of the Club in 1962. Under the new ownership, operation and control passed to a Board of Directors elected from the general membership each for a three-year term.

    In 1967, St. George's hired Robbie Robinson, who had worked and studied under Stanley Thompson, to prepare the course for the 1968 Canadian Open. The two biggest changes he made were relocated the greens on the par five 4th and 15th holes to their present majestic locations.

    St Georges has been the host club for the Canadian Open on four occasions, and for the LPGA Classic on five occasions, and most recently the du Maurier Champions, Canadian Senior Open. St George's has been given a lot of praise from tour players for its demand for accuracy and the exciting four finishing holes.

    The Parkland course fits subtly into its surroundings using the natural terrain to its benefit rather than fighting against it. The course also provides some spectacular scenery especially in Autumn when all the tree's boast a golden canopy. From the black tee's the course measures 7025 yards providing a difficult challenge for even the gifted golfer. St Georges boasts five tee off areas to suit golfers of all standards.
