sceneryAhhhh wonderful Whirlpool! We could hardly wait to get back to visit this grand old Dame of Canadian golf lore! It had been many years since our last visit and we must say Whirlpool has kept pace with the modern world of golf facilities

Time has been kind to this special place thanks to the caring hands who have nurtured her into maturity. She now celebrates her 65th anniversary during 2016. Our writing team was delighted to have played a small part during this yearly celebration.

Known as simply “Stanley” to many but to others as “Mr. Thompson”, Stanley created this gem overlooking the Niagara River and Niagara Gorge. Stanley included this as one of his finest hours when the course opened on July 2, 1951. Whirlpool was his final design.

Many of his other fabulous courses are listed in the yardage book when you play Whirlpool. In short “Stanley” was and still is “the man” when it came to prolific, outstanding golf course design in Canada.

Whirlpool Golf Course is owned and operated by the Niagara Parks Commission which has taken great care of this wonderful testament to great golf course design. Mr. Thompson would be very proud of all whose hands have have touched the soil here.

From the extraordinary stately old trees , bright flowers and plantings to the stone clubhouse built and meant to last centuries, this place is the best place to relax , have a nice meal, a cold beverage and to tee it up for a great day of golf on a wonderful layout.

You will find the entire staff welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The Proshop is chock full of the latest in golf apparel and equipment.

We must also note that the starter and rangers were very humorous and helpful. Nothing like a good funny story and help in finding an errant ball or two to make it a great day at Whirlpool Golf Course.

Pricing is extremely reasonable for this region ranging $36 CDN to $85 CDN depending on season and time of day. Great value for such a super experience.

Whirlpool offers Stay and Play packages starting at under $200 CDN ($152 USA $$’s at this writing) for accommodation, 2 rounds on 2 great golf courses and other perks.

We also encourage our readers to check out Whirlpool for their next tournament, wedding, banquet or business meeting. Exceptional people await your inquiry.
