Designed by Hall of Fame architect Robbie Robinson, Georgetown GC opened in 1958 as a lovely parkland course known for its wonderfully rambunctious character, complete with valleys, scenic views, elevated tee shots, and the Credit River that runs through the property.
Since it joined the ClubLink family and was renamed Eagle Ridge Golf Club, the course has undergone a series of upgrades, including significant renovations to tee boxes, bunkers and fairways.
Eagle Ridge is a classic strategic course, providing the golfer with plenty of options, but there are times when you’ve got to make the shot, such as the harrowing approach to the par-4 10th green set on a hillside guarded by giant stands of trees.
The charming clubhouse has a beautiful patio overlooking the 18th green, a bar with great character for lunch, dinner or just a beverage, as well as meeting space and a banquet room perfect for weddings or parties. Eagle Ridge is also renowned for its Friday night barbecues and Sunday brunches.
Eagle Ridge is a lovely walk made even better in the Escarpment countryside just northwest of Greater Toronto.

Willow Park Ecology Centre is a year-round nature preserve that provides habitat for native plants and animals. It is approximately 2.1 hectares (or 5 acres) in the floodplain bounded by the West Branch of the Credit River (Silvercreek) and the main Credit River. An ideal site for nature study, education, passive recreation, and relaxation - located in the village of Norval, part of Halton Hills, Ontario, Canada.
The Centre consists of an outdoor park on 5 acres of land in the Credit Valley Watershed and is operated by the WPEC volunteer Board of Directors. The board operates using following their 2010 Strategic Plan and the Management Structure outlined in the Honeycomb Framework (October 2014) -link or insert below . It exists to educate schoolchildren and the general public about ecology and the environment through programs and events, and to provide natural habitat for wildlife in the ravine at the confluence of the Credit River and Silver Creek.
Over 15 years the guardians transformed this former grassy trailer park into a lush and diverse ecosystem along the confluence of the Credit River and Silver Creek. It now includes a board-walked wetland, a rehabilitated riverine shoreline, a snake hibernaculum, as well as vegetated areas planted to attract specific wildlife. Local volunteers have carried through with an ambitious plan to encourage natural regeneration. Today, the 5-acre site has reached early succession.

During the summer of 1980, Terry Fox ran through Georgetown on his Marathon of Hope. He ran along highway 7, stopped at the top of Norval Hill and was greeted by thousands who lined the route, made him homemade food, gave him cards, donated what they could and wished him well. Each year since, the Georgetown Terry Fox Run has endevoured to achieve the goal Terry never lived to see: a cure for cancer. On Sunday, September 17, join us at the Gellert Centre in Georgetown South as we stand against cancer, remember Terry and enjoy a beautiful day of friends, family and fundraising. Walk, roll, run or jog the 5k loop. Pets are welcome. Free pizza, drinks and Terry Fox memorabilia will be available.
