Jackson's Point, Ontario

 
The Front Nine was design by Canada's Premier golf architect Stanley Thompson (1922), the Back Nine by the notable C.E. "Robbie" Robinson (1971). "The well-maintained, easily walked track -- with well-framed but seldom narrow fairways -- is a splendid resort course; not too penal for higher handicaps but no pushover for better players looking to accurately position tee shots or master the subtle breaks of its greens." The Briars Golf Club's well manicured, "subtle and attractive lay-out winds through cedar hedging, century old evergreens and graceful birch stands." Discover plentiful water hazards, well protected greens and magnificent Black River vistas.
