Hi. My name is Keir Smith and I’m the General Manager here at Oak Bay Golf Club. I’m really pleased that you’re considering our course for your golf tournament, so let me tell you a bit about what we can offer.
The course is located on the shores of Georgian Bay, just minutes off Highway 400 at Port Severn. There’s not a smokestack or skyscraper anywhere in sight – just spectacular views of the water, the forest and a beautiful golf course carved out of the rugged Canadian Shield.
Getting here is a breeze. It’s all highway driving – so no traffic jams – and we’re only 30 minutes north of Barrie. Or an hour north of the GTA. If you live in Toronto, you know you could drive an hour in the City and go nowhere. Or you could escape the hustle and bustle of the City and breathe some really fresh air here by the Bay.
Our golf course isn’t overly long – it’s just shy of 6,400 yards – and play moves along well, even for large groups that may be unfamiliar with the layout. That’s important for your golf tournament. Most outings include some players that aren’t regular golfers, and nobody wants to feel like the golf course beat them up. On the contrary, at Oak Bay, they’ll be thrilled with the scenery and the brilliant routing that takes them through the trees, over magnificent rock outcroppings and down to the water’s edge. If they’re like most of the folks that play here, they’ll be talking about our course for a long time and have pictures to prove it.
We have a new fleet of power carts, fully equipped with GPS, that will make navigating the course easy. And if you haven’t heard, we have a reputation for exceptional conditioning. Our golf course superintendent Owen Ledwith is one of the best in the business and golfers regularly comment on the outstanding grooming here at Oak Bay.
Of course, golf is just part of your tournament outing, so let’s talk about your dining options. At Oak Bay, we don’t just have a food and beverage operation – we have a gourmet restaurant. Every day, our Executive chef, Luigi Becatti prepares a menu with multiple specials that delight golfers, Oak Bay residents, local cottagers and even patrons that drive a long way for a great meal.
We offer several pre-set menu options for larger tournaments that range from a la carte steak and chicken dishes to more traditional buffet fare. For smaller groups, we can ask the chef to prepare something truly unique. Either way, your tournament guests will rave about our food, as our regular patrons do in the comments section on Trip Advisor.
Our 10,000 square foot clubhouse is capable of hosting small intimate groups or full field tournaments in a setting that offers spectacular views of Georgian Bay, and if there’s anything else we can add to make your tournament day even more special, all you have to do is ask.
Whether your outing is a small group of Bay Street clients, a charity event or the local minor hockey tournament, Oak Bay will work with you to make it a memorable day for all concerned.
Please give me a call (705-538-0893) or email me (email@example.com) and let’s discuss your event.
And thanks for considering Oak Bay.
