Designed and built by Bruce Summers, along with his son Doug, in conjunction with Bob Moote, Lakeridge Links is a 6,815-yard championship layout that has garnered attention from both a national golfing organization and the national golfing media.
The Canadian Colleges Athletic Association held its national championship at Lakeridge in 2001 and 2002, while in 2005 the Toronto Star's Bogeyman rated the 14th hole as the most challenging par-4 and credited the pro shop with being "the friendliest."
Whispering Ridge opened for play in 1996 and boasts an outstanding mix of holes covering 4,733 yards. Although relatively short in length, Whispering Ridge gives golfers the opportunity to use all their clubs.
Bruce Summers, who passed away in March, 2006, had a huge impact on golf in Durham Region.
Lakeridge Links and Whispering Ridge were the final two courses he built in a lengthy career that also saw him develop Winchester Golf Club in Brooklin, Oshawa Airport, Summerlea in Port Perry and Seaton in Pickering.
