Mayor Patrick Brown, Regional Councillor Rowena Santos, Wards 1 and 5 and Chair, Community Services, and City of Brampton staff gathered on July 21st to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Peel Village Golf Course.
Located in the heart of Brampton, Peel Village Golf Course is constructed within a 67-acre flood plain surrounding the Etobicoke Creek.
“This golf course has a rich history that has allowed residents and visitors of many generations to enjoy the sport of golf for over a century,” said Mayor Patrick Brown. “Built on a 67-acre flood plain surrounding the Etobicoke Creek, Peel Village Golf Courseis one of Brampton’s top outdoor amenities and an excellent example of one that supports our green and sustainable city. I encourage all our residents – and visitors – to get outdoors, stay active, and of course, tee up whenever you can to enjoy this longstanding jewel of our city. Congratulations on this milestone anniversary, and here’s to Peel Village Golf Course celebrating another 100 years for many generations to come!”
This course was initially designed and operated as the Brampton Golf Course from 1921 to 1963, at which time the course was separated into two. What we know today as the Peel Village Golf Course was constructed and designed by architect Stanley Thompson.
In 1995, Peel Village joined the Audubon program, a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the conservation of wildlife and their habitats.
In 1998, it became the first municipal golf course to become fully certified under the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System.
Today, the course offers golfers nine challenging holes in a natural setting and is a mix of tree-lined dog-legs, water hazards, sand traps, elevated tee boxes and greens.
