Top 25 courses in Canada according to Golf Advisor reviews in 2015

We've taken your thousands of ratings and reviews on Golf Advisor over the course of 2015 to determine the top 25 golf courses in Canada. From Nova Scotia to British Columbia, the collection is a diverse mix of both affordable and high-end courses, and it ranges from challenging championship courses to shorter and more player-friendly layouts. The metro-Toronto area features several courses here, as do top destinations like Cape Breton, Niagara Falls and the Okanagan. Favorite Canadian architects Les Furber and Doug Carrick also scored designs here, not surprisingly.

Scores were compiled using a combination of a course's overall and subcategory ratings (like value, conditions and staff friendliness). You can click on each course to view ratings details and what golfers are saying about the experience.

Canoe Creek and Nk Mip Canyon don’t belong on this list. There’s 20 public courses better than these. These 2 aren’t even the bedt in their respective cities. Add Salmon Arm Golf Club, Tower Ranch ,Osoyoos GCC, Crowne Isl GC, Talking Rock, Big Sky GC, Bear Mtn Victoria-either course-are all superior in every way to these 2 courses. I like both courses but if it’s outright ratings, sorry.

What, is this based on a sample size of 5 golfers?  What a pathetic list - some of these courses do dual time as cow pastures.

About 400 courses or so qualified based on review count for 2015. Definitely not all of them. But there were a few courses that make Top 100 lists but for whatever reason didn't score as well with these golfers.

The worst top 25 list that I have ever seen regarding Canadian Golf

This isn't trying to compete with say, Score Golf's Top 100, which seeks out the best of the best. This is based on golfer feedback based on their rounds. Totally different beast.

Canada's most expensive public-access golf courses aren't cheap but cost significantly less than the two most expensive golf experiences in the U.S.
From Vancouver Island to Newfoundland, Canada's scenery is spectacular. And, thankfully, if you're into golf, that jaw-dropping scenery is on display on many of the Great White North's most notable courses.
