Settlers' Ghost Golf Club is a public golf course located near Craighurst, Ontario, Canada. It has twice hosted the CN Canadian Women's Tour.[1]

History[edit]

In the early 2000s, a group of investors purchased a piece of land in Oro-Medonte Township. After some delays, including an archaeological dig, Settlers' Ghost opened in August 2004 as a 9-hole course. The back nine opened in 2005, making Settlers' Ghost a full 18-hole course.

CN Tour[edit]

From May 28 to 30, 2006, Settlers' Ghost hosted the CN Canadian Women's Tour, a qualifying tournament for the Canadian Women's Open. Salimah Mussani won the tournament and an exemption into the Canadian Open with a 25-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole.[2] She and Corina Kelepouris finished the two-day event tied at 4-under par. Mary-Pat Quilty finished the event tied for 40th place at 9-over par.

Settlers' Ghost again hosted the CN Tour in 2007. Quebecer Christine Boucher won the event in a three-way playoff by making a 30-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole.[3] Boucher, Lauren Mielbrecht and Walailak Satarak finished the event at 1-over par. After finishing the first day in seventh place, Quilty ended up in a tie for 24th place at 10-over par.

The name[edit]

The Township of Oro-Medonte, home to this property, has along and storied past, and it is our intent that this golf course serve as a reminder of that past and preserve the memory of those here before us.

The first "settlers" to the area were the Huron Indians and the remains of two important village sites are located nearby. The second group of "settlers", primarily from the British Isles, established agriculture throughout the Township as many of their descendants continue to do.

Settlers' Ghost Golf Club is the third "settler".

"Ghost" refers to the first two groups, who may be gone, but are not forgotten.

Our name was born out of respect for the area. It creates a veiled vision of the past, and our logo carries a mystique that silently beckons you to know more. The golf course speaks for itself.
