Bond Head Becomes Part of ClubLink

As mentioned more than a month ago, The Club at Bond Head north of Toronto has now become part of ClubLink. I’ll do more on this later today, but here’s the news release for now:


King City, Ontario. April 7, 2009 “ ClubLink Corporation (ClubLink) (TSX: LNK) is  pleased to announce  that it has entered into a long-term, 21 golf-season lease with Bond Head Golf Resort Inc. for The Club at Bond Head effective immediately.

The Club at Bond Head, just west of Highway 400 north of Toronto, consists of two superb 18-hole courses designed by the renowned architectural firm of Hurdzan Fry.

The South Course, opened in 2005, was named best new course in Canada by Travel & Leisure Golf and one of the top three new courses by Golf Digest. The North Course, which opened the next year, was selected as the top public course in the Greater Toronto Area by the Toronto Star. The facility includes a magnificent clubhouse and The Institute at Bond Head, a state-of-the-art instruction centre.

We feel this is a beneficial arrangement for all parties, said Joe Caruso, Managing Director and Secretary of Bond Head Golf Resort Inc. We have developed one of the top golf facilities in North America and we are proud to partner with the largest golf company in Canada.

The Club at Bond Head fits the ClubLink image perfectly, said Rai Sahi, ClubLink President and CEO. The facility combines two excellent courses with world-class amenities and superlative service standards.  Similar to the arrangement at Glen Abbey, ClubLink members will have reciprocal access to The Club at Bond Head.

ClubLink is Canadas largest owner and operator of member golf clubs.

  • Good work breaking the story RT. So much for the doubters who don’t realize how long it takes to finalize a deal.

    Your next assignment, if you chose to accept it, is to find out if Bruce is staying at the Institute.

    Thanks again for the good work.

  • Hopefully won’t be too much for CL members to play…it’s nice track but for the $$ we fork out already not that great.

    Nice work breaking this story…it gave my golfing buddies and I something to talk about while we’re shoveling the driveway…..

  • That’s my understanding as well. He’s looking after the space for at least this year — and likely longer.

  • RT, you hit it right down the middle. HGCC will not be in the top 100 next go around if it does not host the Open. 2015 will be too late.
