The Timmins Golf Club was established in 1922 by the Hollinger Mine in an effort to encourage employees to come to Timmins and work for the Mine. After the Hollinger Mine closed and sold the Golf Club to the membership in 1974, it was renamed Hollinger Golf Club. In 2001, the Hollinger Golf Club expanded from its original 9 hole facility to include a championship 18 hole course.
Incorporated August 9, 1922, the Hollinger Golf Club now boasts the new Highlands / Lakelands courses that combine to make the new 18 hole course. The original 9-hole course was closed in 2007 after the beginning two holes had to be sold back to a mining company because of mining subsidence issues.
The Hollinger Golf Club has unique practice facilities which include a double ended driving range to accommodate ball hitters of various abilities. Junior clinics and programs are being developed in order to promote the game with youth in our area. We encourage many young participants to grow with the Hollinger Golf Club. Please contact the Pro Shop for information about upcoming programs. Not only is the Hollinger Golf Club a great place to play golf, but with its location in the Heart of the City it is also an attractive site for breakfast, lunch or dinner. A wide selection of items are featured on an eclectic menu, and friendly, gracious service contributes to an enjoyable experience. Practice your skills, play your game, appreciate the northern beauty, and join us for a tasty meal, and you will confirm that the Hollinger Golf Club is indeed Northern Ontario’s Golden Golf Destination.
Designed by John Robinson, the sheer beauty and challenge of this spectacular new course in the north will be sure to impress.
The Golf Course
The Hollinger Golf Club is Northern Ontario’s only 18-hole Championship full bent grass golf course. We have a full practice facility that includes, a driving range, putting green, and chipping and bunker area.
The Hollinger Golf Course was professionaly designed by architect John Robinson and constructed by the Glen Campbell Golf Course Design Company.
The course is a Par 72 and plays 6548 yards from the black tees. It features 2 distinct 9-hole loops appropriately named the Highlands and the Lakelands.
The Highlands features elevated views with holes winding through the canadian shield. Hole #6 is the hole you will most likely be talking about because of the elevation changes, split fairway and spectacular views.
The Lakelands is cut through the lower part of the land, where multiple ponds and streams come into play from Hole #10 to #15. The finishing holes are probably some of the best you will see on any golf course, where the course moves back toward the higher ground, you will experience exciting elevated tee-shots and wonderful views of the city. The tee-shot on Hole#18 is one you won’t forget, it will keep you wanting more. When you walk off the last green with that closing birdie on our signature hole, you will probably want to stop by the pro shop to book your next tee-time.
Once your next tee-time is booked, be sure to enjoy a wonderful meal in our clubhouse. Try our famous Fish’n’Chip Special every Friday.
The Driving Range features a large grass hitting area. There are multiple target options on the range. Use the targets for game improvement or use them to simply have a good time making some noise. There are multiple bucket sizes available, with prices ranging from $6 – $18 based on how much practice time you are looking for. Driving Range hours are typically from 8 am to 8 pm daily, with operating hours modified in the later parts of the season.
The Practice Area also includes:
- Large Ondulated Putting Green
- Chip/ Pitch Area
- Large Practice Bunker (Sand Shots)
