With eighteen holes set out alongside Lake Simcoe, The Nest course at the Friday Harbour Resort is a Doug Carrick design that debuted in 2018. A considerable amount of soil was used to create the contours here, with much of the material coming from the construction of a marina at the resort.

The original routing tied the course into the resort and marina as a continuous 18-hole layout, returning around a residential component, but environmental considerations – primarily aimed at preserving wetland and forest areas – dictated how the holes were eventually aligned.

With four greens located close to the clubhouse, this offers the option of playing a multitude of short or long loops. The four par fives on the card all play in a different direction, there’s a couple of interesting short par fours (at the 1st and 13th) and the 145-yard par three 2nd is appropriately named “Postage Stamp”.

“The bunkering style was inspired by the closely mown green and bunker environs found on the great sandbelt courses in Australia,” said Doug Carrick. “Greenside bunkers are surrounded by bentgrass and fairway cut extends to the leading edge of fairway bunkers.”
