A True Scottish Experience
“For that true Scottish experience, play Heathlands Links at Osprey Valley, one of the finest links courses in Ontario. Designed by Doug Carrick, Heathlands has received the Gold Award from The Golf Ranking Magazine, a 4 star rating by Golf Digest and is rated 5th in Ontario by The Southern Ontario Golf Directory. This challenging 18 hole championship course with its undulating fairways, pot bunkers and fescue rough provides golfing in the Scottish tradition.”

Osprey Valley features three distinctive 18-hole championship courses designed by acclaimed Canadian architect, Doug Carrick. Located in the picturesque rolling hills of Caledon, it offers a golfing experience as vivid as it is challenging.
Three Distinctive 18-Hole Golf Courses
Osprey Valley a true destination spot for golf in Ontario, offering three world-class 18-hole golf courses without the pretense of a private club. All three are public, pay-as-you-play courses. Each is highly regarded in its own right and all three are ranked in both of ScoreGolf’s Top 100 courses in Canada and Canada’s Best 59 Public Golf Courses.
“Each course offers a unique layout, challenges different parts
of your game and is aesthetically completely different.”
~ Alistair Orr, On the Tee Magazine
Heathlands opened in 1991, designed by Ontario Golf Hall of Fame course architect, Doug Carrick, and is purported to be the very first links style course to be built in Ontario. Although inland, the course manages to effectively emulate traditional Scottish links, with its rolling dunes covered with fescue grasses and pot bunkers. Like many courses in Scotland, Heathlands is even built between a road line and a rail line. The course’s tight, undulating fairways make it perhaps, the most challenging course in Osprey Valley, and true golfers inevitably fall in love with it.
Winding strategically through a captivating pine forest, similar to Pine Valley in the United States, Hoot is our wasteland style course, characterized by striking level changes and dramatic sand bunkers from tee to green. Some of Hoot’s ragged bunkers are so vast that a fairway bunker will become a greenside bunker, or even overtake the cart path. Hoot features panoramic tee shots, a diverse variety of risk/reward shots and precise water hazards. More than 3,000 trees were transplanted to create the incredible, natural feel of the towering pine forest and there is a beautiful waterfall in the design of the seventeenth hole.
Pastoral in setting, greener and lusher than its fellows, Toot is a visually arresting North American parkland course and a delight for golfers of all abilities to play. Naturally rolling fairways with generous landing areas make it the most player friendly of our courses, but look out for challenging approach shots to wide, undulating greens featuring artistically sculpted bunkers cut close to the putting surfaces.
