Mississauga’s third-oldest golf course reopens to full play on Monday

Golfers who’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to play the full 18 holes again at the 125-year-old Lakeview Golf Course in Mississauga can now do so starting Monday (Aug. 29).

The picturesque and mature course tucked away in the southeast part of the city underwent a bit of reconstruction this summer, and reopening was delayed.

It did open again for nine-hole play on June 20, and was scheduled to reopen its 18-hole course on July 15. But the latter plan was put off until Aug. 29.

The delay was due to reconstruction surrounding Applewood Creek, which runs through the property. As well, there’s a new design for the cart path along with adjustments to the tees, greens and fairways because of the realignment to the creek.

Lakeview Golf Course, located at 1190 Dixie Rd. just north of Lakeshore Rd., has been at that location since 1907.

An Ontario Heritage Site that has hosted two Canadian Open tournaments, Lakeview traces its origin back to the High Park Golf Club, an 18-hole, 50-acre course created in 1896 in Toronto’s Swansea Township, immediately east of Mississauga.

The club then moved to its current location in 1907. 

In 1912, the club was renamed Lakeview Golf Course, described over the years as one of Ontario’s finest courses and a southern Ontario hidden gem.

It has maintained some of the finest golf conditions in the province, according to City of Mississauga officials, who operate the course.

Lakeview, they say, has remained true to the beautiful Herbert Strong-designed parkland-style course layout, featuring large sloping greens with subtle breaks that offer great challenges, and fun.  

Toronto Golf Club, which opened in 1876 and is located just across the street from Lakeview, is the oldest golf club in Mississauga and third-oldest in Canada. 

Mississaugua Golf Club, located on Mississauga Rd. and opened in 1906, is officially recognized as the second-oldest golf club in the city.
