2019 will mark the 100th anniversary of Hamilton Golf & Country Club hosting its first National Men's Open Golf Championship.

Since that time the club has hosted the Canadian Open on five other occassions, most recently in 2012, and as part of its agreement with Golf Canada and RBC, the Open will return to HGCC in 2023.

The first Canadian Open at HGCC took place in 1919 -  it was a championship that featured two of the most legendary names in golf - Bobby Jones and Francis Ouimet, but it was J. Douglas Edgar who would go on to earn a 16-stroke win.

Other players to have won the Canadian Open at Hamilton Golf and Country Club include Tommy Armour (1930), Bob Tway (2003), Team RBC member Jim Furyk (2006) and Scott Piercy (2012).

Course Layout

Set on incredible rolling land that has few rivals in terms of varied topography, HGCC’s original 18 is a testament to what a timeless golf course can be. Designed by Harry Shapland Colt, the famed British architect behind courses like Royal Portrush and Muirfield, Hamilton has been considered one of the best parkland courses in North America for more than a century, and played host to the best golfers in the world.

The West Course makes up the front nine of the Championship Course for the RBC Canadian Open followed by the South Course for the back nine. The East Course is not part of the Canadian Open layout.

WEST COURSE – The course Colt designed is full of brilliant moments that utilize the property in remarkable ways. The West course includes the original front nine. Holes like the third, run through magnificent valleys, while other holes play over areas where the land dips, like the sixth and eighth holes, two of the best par threes in golf.

SOUTH COURSE – HGCC is walked by the vast majority of members. On the South course, we find Colt’s finishing holes as the routing concludes with an iconic par-4. The magnificent green is set into a natural amphitheatre with the classic clubhouse perched on top of the hill.

EAST COURSE - In 1928, the club, acting on advice from Colt's design partner, Charles Alison, purchased 119 acres adjacent to the existing golf course. In 1973, C.E. "Robbie" Robinson designed nine new holes on the land that was purchased nearly 50 years previously.

HARRY SHAPLAND COLT QUOTE

"If you have the money to spend there is no reason why you should not have one of the finest golf courses in America," Harry Shapland Colt wrote to the club prior to his visit in May 1914.
