Northview Golf and Country Club is one of the top facilities in the province. Arnold Palmer’s go-for-broke style and respect for the game are evident in every part of the courses he built at Northview. The Ridge Course is the former home of the PGA’s Air Canada Championship. The Course is defined by its smooth-flowing, delicately contoured fairways and gentle changes in elevation. Thepar five 18th hole typifies the Northview Golf and Country Club &Ridge Course style. This double fairway Par 5 offers a short, rather dangerous route. Once on the 18th green you have the chance to imagine 20,000 people overlooking your putt, just as the tour pros had for 7 years, during the Air Canada Championship. Savour the moment and then sink your putt for the cheering crowd!
