Nicklaus North Golf Course

Nicklaus North is only the second Canadian course designed by Jack Nicklaus and, of the 150 courses he's designed worldwide, this is the only course to which Jack has been compelled to add his name. Designed with an awareness and sensitivity towards the area's natural habitat and nestled between Green Lake and the River of Golden Dreams, Nicklaus North features impressive glacial mountain views.
