Carved through the rolling hills of Eastern Ontario, Camelot Golf Club, designed by renowned course architect Thomas McBroom, weaves between towering pines and opens to gentle meadows, creating a test of golf that contrasts and complements, bemuses and bedevils.
Camelot incorporates all the characteristics one desires from a home course—incredible tee shots, great land, and a course that is never the same twice.
It challenges and invites, while remaining fair throughout—a combination that engages the mind for 18 holes. All of this just 15 minutes from Ottawa’s core.
Perhaps that is why our championship course has been selected time and again to host some of the country’s top amateur events, most notably the 2012 Men’s Canadian Amateur, which saw PGA Tour winner Mackenzie Hughes defend his title.
A course that tests the game’s most talented players, yet is receptive and playable to the weekend golfer—that’s what you can expect from a McBroom masterclass. With five tee decks, stretching out at 7,047 yards, Camelot is an intriguing test for all skill levels.
When you join Camelot, you experience Ottawa’s best, and delight in its refined character.
Designer: Tom McBroom, a member of the Ontario Golf Hall of Fame, is one of the most notable golf designers in Canadian history.
A multiple winner of Golf Digest’s Best New Course in Canada award, McBroom has created courses throughout the country, from the rugged rocky areas of Muskoka, to the rollicking hills of British Columbia. His work can also be found throughout the world, from the Caribbean to Scandinavia.
McBroom’s work at Camelot highlights his use of the incredible landscape, from the subtle rolling front nine, to the majestic hills on the back nine. In turn, he created a course that never fully reveals itself, offering options throughout. “Camelot is really a combination of two characteristics,” says McBroom. “It’s links-style up in the meadowland where the holes are defined by the fescue roughs. The rest is situated in woodsy parkland. It’s a great contrast.”
