“Noted for its natural scenic beauty, the Pine Valley Golf Club is located near the town of Vittoria, off Highway 24, about 16km southwest of Simcoe, Ontario. Its exceptionally well maintained and manicured 18-hole, par 66, layout plays out over 4,814 yards of rolling, heavily forested terrain.
This is not a course where the long ball hitter shines. Rather, this is a course that favour intelligent shot management and skill. Many of Pine Valley’s fairways contain dramatic elevation changes and / or slopes that can play havoc with a poorly played shot.
The highlight of Pine Valley is its 206 yard, 5th hole, widely reputed to be among the finest and most challenging par threes in Canada. You being from an elevated tee aiming through a narrow approach to a small green that is guarded on both sides by water. With no room for error, players who achieve par or better on this hole are justified in a little boasting after their round.
