Islington, Ontario, Canada

Preeminent Canadian architect Stanley Thompson hit his professional peak at this quiet club near downtown Toronto that went by Royal York from 1928 to 1946 until it ended its affiliation with the Canadian Pacific Railway. The wonderful rolling parkland terrain is replete with streams and natural valleys and has witnessed five Canadian Opens, most recently in 2010 when Carl Pettersson captured the title, conquering one of the nation’s strongest closing quartet of holes in the process. Tom Doak and Ian Andrew spearheaded a restoration that was completed in 2015.
