The words "links" and "links-style" are often misused in contemporary golf, but they meet their true expression in Doug Carrick's design at Cobble Beach Golf Links. Located on the shores of Georgian Bay, near Owen Sound, this semi-private course presents the pleasurable excitement golfers associate with such seaside sites as St. Andrews, Pebble Beach, and Ballybunion. Over land that tumbles and rolls, rising to present shoreline views and cascading to the bluffs above the water's edge, Carrick has laid out a par 72, 7,100-yard challenge that will test the finest players, with four sets of tees to accommodate golfers at all levels of skill. The Nantucket-style clubhouse offers sweeping views of the course and the bay. The upper floors of the clubhouse feature a boutique-style Inn with 10 luxury suites, guest lounge and meeting room. The Sweetwater Restaurant is also found with in the clubhouse and offers a dining room, bar and a patio. Just north of the Clubhouse there are 5 private cottages, each complete with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living area with a queen size sofa bed, wet bar and stunning views of Georgian Bay. The course and club are the center-piece of a planned lifestyle community with a variety of options for those who want to call Cobble Beach their home.
