The History of Woodington Lake Golf Club
Owned and operated by the Allard family and located in the rolling hills of Tottenham, Woodington Lake is a highly respected semi-private 36 hole golf facility ranked as one of Ontario’s finest.
Purchased in 1994 in a semi-completed state, the golf course underwent a major redesign and opened to rave reviews in 1995. In 1999, Woodington Lake opened its unique 32,000 square foot clubhouse – with facilities for tournaments, banquets, private boardroom meetings, weddings, and other social functions. Gatherings of 30 to 340 can be accommodated depending on the particular need. The clubhouse offers outstanding cuisine, spectacular views, and superb locker room facilities. The fully stocked pro shop offers a large selection of golf clubs and other golf related merchandise, at competitive prices.
Harry Allard, in addition to being a longtime CPGA professional, has a very extensive background in the design, building and operations of first class golf facilities. He built Emerald Hills Golf course (home of the 1988 Canadian PGA Championship) which he sold in 1989. After a short lived retirement Mr. Allard purchased a partially completed course, redesigned all the greens, bunkers and finished the back nine and the original course at Woodington Lake Golf Club was born. He was not finished as the land parcel was over 400 acres and his completed vision for the property included a second 18 holes designed, built and currently maintained by him. This new course at Woodington Lake is destined to become one of Ontario’s greatest golf challenges, it opened for limited play in 2007 with 2008 being its first full season.
