The Bleu and Blanc nines at the 27-hole Club de golf Islesmere were laid out by Willie Park Junior back in 1919 and this fine old course has hosted both the Canadian Open (in 1959) and Canadian Women’s Open (in 1987).
Fair warning, I am a member here. I love this golf course, especially the Blue and the White course, which is the original Willie Park Junior track. When I first joined, the course was thickly treed and a magnificent parkland course, but global warming has necessitated a thorough thinning of the trees and disease has done the rest to whole stretches of stands dividing the fairways. There is no more lovely golf course in the world as the colours change and fall sets in. It's destined to become a victim of suburbanization, though, so, it's unlikely to live to be 110 as it celebrated its centennial in 2019.
