Located just off of the 407 expressway between Markham and Vaughan, Ontario, Richmond Hill Golf Club is a premier 18-hole championship course in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). An upscale public facility that regularly earns praise for its fun, challenging and beautiful layout, this busy club has been a popular venue for corporate tournaments and outings in addition to general play ever since it opened in 1992. Richmond Hill Golf Club s picturesque, tree-lined par-70 routing is a 34-36 configuration. The front nine features three par 3s and one par 5, while the back nine follows a more standard formula with two par 3s and two par 5s. Richmond Hill Golf Club is not a long course. The three tee decks (plus a combo option on the scorecard) give players a choice of distances ranging from just under 5,000 yards to just over 6,000 yards. Long and medium hitters won t use their drivers very often. The sporty fun begins with two opening, big-bending doglegs that set the tone for the round. While the front nine is more open, most of the holes at Richmond Hills Golf Club proceed in distinct playing corridors. You ll face some carries over trees, vegetation, and water and numerous tight fairways and landing areas, especially on the more target-style back nine. Water comes into play on a total of six holes. Accuracy is a must and many players are prone to lose a number of balls during the round. The greens are receptive. Richmond Hill Golf Club is a very walkable layout, for other than a couple of hills on the back nine, the playing field is predominantly flat. The course is especially beautiful in fall when the foliage bursts with vibrant color. Richmond Hill Golf Club doesn t set a formal closing date for the season, but it shuts down once the snow begins to stick. Practice facilities at the club include a full driving range, chipping area, sand bunker, and putting green. The clubhouse features a full-service pro shop, rooms for social functions, and the 19th Hole Lounge where you can relax with beverages and items from the grill. On nice days, the preferred hangout is either the upper or lower patio.
