If your vacation is not complete without hitting the greens, then you will not be disappointed around Niagara Falls. There are three professional-quality, 18-hole courses endorsed by Niagara Parks. The two closest to the central tourist district are Battlefield Golf Course and Ussher’s Creek Golf Course. These players are teeing off at the Whirlpool Golf Course, designed by Stanley Thompson. Whirlpool is rated within Canada’s top 50 courses and among the best in terms of value. Other options include Thundering Waters, Grand Niagara Resort and Oak Hall Par 3 Golf Club. Residents might prefer joining one of several private country clubs.
