My hubby John likes to play golf but figures his skill set doesn’t justify big green fees every time he wants to bring out the clubs. A few years ago, he and my 70something Uncle discovered Tomahawk in Thornbury and they were hooked.
Situated on just over 51 acres of land just south of town, Tomahawk was developed many years ago as a Par 3, 18 hole pitch and putt course by a local fellow. He maintained it privately but opened it to the public on a donation basis with all funds going to the Schizophrenia Society of Canada. Then in the spring of 2007, he sold the land to the Town of the Blue Mountains.
The Town added soccer pitches and improved some of the golf lands making it a beautiful treasure that is affordable and enjoyable for families, youth and seniors. It is maintained through corporate sponsorships and minimal “pay as you play” fees of just $5.00 with funds used to offset the maintenance costs of the facility now called, the Tomahawk Recreation Complex. Golf is available on a first come first serve basis and tee times are not available.
To get there, take Highway 26 West to Thornbury and turn south onto Grey Road 113 (just east of Goldsmith’s Fruit Stand). Turn right onto Peel Street (10th Line) first entrance on the right. The civic address 417230 10th Line.
