Golf at the St. Catharines Golf & Country Club
St. Catharines Golf & Country Club was originally located on the grounds of today's Ridley College. In 1909 the Club relocated to the Westchester Avenue site and the course was built with the design assistance of Stanley Thompson, the prolific Canadian golf course architect. Over the years, the course has matured and changed with the most significant alterations occurring when the province routed Highway 406 through a corner of the Club's lands. More recent changes occurred when the pond was enlarged to provide adequate water resources. Those and other course modifications have been with a master plan designed by Ian Andrew, our golf course architect.

During the first round of the 2010 Canadian Tour Championship, Kris Wasylowich of Lethbridge, AB set a new competitive course record posting a round of 62 that day. The original course record at the St. Catharines Golf and Country Club was set on September 18, 1988 by then Head Golf Professional, John Irwin. His round of 63 was matched by three players during the playing of the 2009 Canadian Tour Championship - Byron Smith, Clayton Rask, and Alan McLean. A 63 was also posted four times in the 2010 event - Ryan Yip, Stuart Anderson, Devin Carrey, and Andres Gonzalez.
On June 11, 1984 John Irwin also tied the all time record for consecutive birdies (ten) which was co-held by Roberto DeVincenzo. He birdied holes seven through sixteen (chipping in twice) and finished with a score of 64 that day.
