Mississaugua Golf & Country Club
The Mississaugua Golf & Country Club is a mixed club featuring an 18-hole championship golf course, curling facilities with six sheets, pro shop and lounge, tennis courts and an active bridge club. It was founded in 1906 and is located in south-central Mississauga, Ontario (the spelling difference between the names of the city and the club is intentional).
The course started as 9 holes, designed by Percy Barrett of the Lambton Golf Club. In 1909, the course was expanded to 18 by George Cumming from the Toronto Golf Club, and in 1919 Donald Ross made several revisions. The course was lengthened by Stanley Thompson in 1927, to prepare for the 1931 Canadian Open. It currently plays to par 71, measuring 6,663 yards from the gold tees and 7,115 yards from the back black tees. The club went through a golf course renovation program by redoing all of their greens in the latter part of 2007 and ending mid year 2008.
Mississaugua Golf & Country Club has hosted the Canadian Open professional men's championship six times;
- 1931 Walter Hagen

- 1942 Craig Wood
- 1951 Jim Ferrier

The club has also hosted many Canadian amateur, women's and senior tournaments.
