LEGENDS ON THE NIAGARA
This addition to the Niagara Parks Golf Trail is drenched with tradition and history. Built along the Niagara River upstream from Niagara Falls, the Legends on the Niagara Golf Complex is cut out of the historic terrain and situated adjacent to the site of the 1814 Battle of Chippawa. The 45-hole golf complex features courses designed by award winning architects Doug Carrick and Thomas McBroom, with two 18-hole championship courses, a nine-hole short course, a putting course designed by Doug Carrick, and a 360-degree practice facility and teaching Academy designed by Thomas McBroom. The result is a golf complex that provides a multitude of golf experiences in the same location.
“The Carrick designed Battlefield Course is surrounded by a preserved, mature Carolinian forest, hiding its wide fairways and presenting the golfer with the intimidating optical illusion of a sea of sand traps ready to snare all but the perfectly hit shot,” said Price. “The McBroom designed Ussher’s Creek Course blends with the natural Canadian landscape and presents endless challenges from even the most advanced golfer. Several of the open holes have a definite Scottish links look, while others feature the meandering Ussher’s Creek.”
