The following edited extract is from Stanley Thompson and Icons of Canada by James M. Harris:
“Oshawa, the home of General Motors Canada, lies about 60 km to the east of downtown Toronto and it is now part of the greater Toronto Area. The Osahawa Golf & Curling Club was chartered on its present site in 1906, but it was in 1911 that the golf course was first redesigned and expanded to 18 holes by George Cumming.
The ambitious redesign of Oshawa by Stanley Thompson as laid out in April 1930 was not carried out due to a lack of available financing. Abandonment of the rebuilding the Oshawa G&CC would be one of the projects where the depressed economy caused an abrupt slowdown of work that was available.
Subsequently, over the years some of Stanley’s ideas have been incorporated into the Oshawa layout but today’s Oshawa is probably best described as a George Cumming/Stanley Thompson hybrid.”
Tom Mackenzie from Mackenzie & Ebert submitted a Long Term plan to the club in 2020 and work is intended to commence in 2022.
