Downsview, Ontario

The Oakdale Golf and Country Club's original course (Thompson and Homenuik nines) were designed and built in 1926 by renowned golf course architect Stanley Thompson. It is parkland style, well treed with undulating terrain. Black Creek, a tributary of The Humber River, runs through the over 200 acres of property on which Oakdale is built and affects eleven of the twenty-seven holes. The "Knudson", as it is referred to by the members, was completed in 1959 by Stanley Thompson protege Robbie Robinson. A complete renovation of the bunkers was carried out by Doug Carrick in the 1990's. The three nines all possess different characteristics and provide both a relaxing and enjoyable experience for all golfers while present formidable challenge to even the most competitive players.
