A scenic patio, dining, evening entertainment and the Red Barn Theatre round out the resort experience. Only an hour from Toronto, The Briars Resort & Spa on Lake Simcoe is an easy getaway, or a great destination if you’re coming from afar. 

Legendary Designers

Two Canadian design legends have combined to bring you a delightful dose of classic resort golf. Stanley Thompson carved out the original nine holes in 1922. Robbie Robinson integrated a second nine in 1971, creating a seamless routing that may look fairly innocuous on paper, but will be appreciated for its subtle charms. Though less than 6300 yards from the tips, with a slope of 120, The Briars is the epitome of the ld-style course that has had a resurgence in ecent years.

A great walking course, the wide well framed fairways narrow into velvety, slick greens that are undulating and well guarded by bunkers and mounding. The course is kept in immaculate condition by the crew of 2003 Canadian Golf Superintendent of the Year Paul White. Two of the three par-5s are reachable by big hitters, and you might use four different clubs to play the par-3s. The exquisite par-4s will provide you a challenge that’s tougher than it looks, but won’t beat you up. You’re here to relax and have fun, remember? So, leave time to play it once more than you planned
