The Hoot's Stunning par-3 4th hole

There are few things finer than a fall day out on the course with close friends. Even finer when that day includes a visit to the Osprey Valley Resort in Caledon, Ontario.

Arguably one of the best 3-course complexes in the country, Osprey packs a punch and rarely disappoints. Osprey is home to the original Heathlands links layout, the parkland Toot as well as ever intriguing Hoot wasteland course. It’s Pine Valley inspired style with vast waste bunkers, tall pines and subtle elevation changes has made the Hoot a true fan favourite among Ontario golfers.

Here’s a quick spin around the Hoot, from a breezy but beautiful day in October 2015:
