With over 50 great courses to choose from, including a variety of skill levels from Par 3 beginner’s to several championship level courses, there is a perfect fit for every golfer.

For the casual yet demanding golfer, Royal Niagara is a must play course of international standing. Its sculpted fairways, abundant water and undulating greens sprawl 7000 yards over three impressive 9-hole courses. Nestled between the 120 year old Welland Canal and the Niagara Escarpment, each different course is built to championship standards, providing a unique golfing experience. 2012 Green Fees for Royal Niagara are $55 weekday and $70 weekend.

Another gem in the Niagara golf world is Peninsula Lakes. Recognized as one of Niagara’s top courses and earning a 4.5 star rating from Golf Digest, Pen Lakes’ 27 holes measure in at over 9000 yards, with perfect greens and plenty of ponds. There are also some spectacular views across the escarpment. 2012 Green Fees for Pen Lakes are $89 weekday and $99 weekend.

The perfect way to explore all the golfing that Niagara has to offer, including the Niagara Golf Trail, is a Play and Stay package. These packages are designed with golfers in mind, and feature great rates on accommodations and green fees bundled together, for one day or a weekend getaway. And don’t forget while you’re in town…stop into the Golf Performance Institute and have your swing checked out with a professional Titleist Performance Certified assessment. After all, nothing ruins a getaway like a slice.
