La CitÃ© Golf Club
was originally a par 64 golf course known as Bon Air Public Golf.
It was constructed in 1994 on 112 acres of land located in the heart of
the city of Hawkesbury. Steven Ward, a golf architect from Golf Plan
Associates of Toronto designed the course.
In April 1998, the golf
course was bought by three local businessmen Kurt Hungerbuebler and
Raymond Danis, two industrialists and Rejean Thoret, an insurance
The new owners quickly
added 8 tees to lengthen the course by 245 yards and proceeded to
purchase adjacent land to extend the golf course to a par 70, which will
be 6043 yards from the back tees, for a 69 rating with a slope of 124.
Three of the nine par 3's were eliminated and substituted by par 5's,
however the attractive front tees were kept intact, playing at 4612
yards for the beginner or senior golfers. Again the golf architect
Steven Ward was hired to maintain the authentic character and design of
the original golf course.
Three existing greens
were bulldozed away to either unify existing holes or create new ones.
115,000 yards of dwarf blue grass and bent grass were laid down to cover
the new holes.
Blaney Creek runs through
this fully automated irrigated course. Fountains purify and keep the
four lakes clear and algae free. The stone edged creek which runs
through the 6th and 17th fairways again adds charm to the course. The
impressive, newly constructed stone wall bordering the par 5 8th hole
further enhances the character of this layout. One soon forgets he is
enjoying the game of golf on a course located in the heart of a city. A
luxurious and elegant clubhouse with a paved parking lot fully
compliments this public golf course.
