This 51 acre parcel of land was developed a number of years ago as an 18 hole "pitch and putt" style golf course by a local businessman and real estate client of mine. The course was maintained privately and was open to the public with green fees consisting of a donation to the Schizophrenia Society of Canada. In May 2007, the property was subsequently sold to the municipality the Blue Mountains and under the municipality's ownership, the property has been further developed to consist of three soccer pitches along with the golf course.
Since taking the property over, the facility has been formally named the Tomahawk Recreation Complex and in addition to building the three soccer pitches, the municipality has continued to improve the golf course as well. This year has seen a dramatic improvement to the grounds as the greens have been aerated and fertilized, the sand traps are being refurbished with new sand and new benches have been installed at many of the tees along with other improvements.
This is just a terrific complex that is open for all to enjoy and the Blue Mountains deserves a lot of credit for undertaking the acquisition and improvement of this property. This past weekend the soccer pitches hosted a regional kid's tournament and the golf course is a great place to introduce your kids or grandchildren to the game of golf without breaking the bank. The municipality gratefully accepts donations to help offset maintenance costs.
Actually I visit the course regularly as it's a good place to work on your short iron game, bunker shots and putting. This past week I carded my first ever hole-in-one. Sure, it was only a 90 yard hole but it was over a pond to a sloping green and a hole-in-one is a hole-in-one, it may be my last! Click on the following link to obtain a course scorecard and layout.

To reach the facility, take Highway 26 west past Thornbury to Peel Street. Head south on Peel (away from the Bay) and it will take you right into the complex. The street address is 417230 the 10th Line.
