At the heart of Pointe West Golf Club is a sprawling links style Golf Course that was designed by Canadian and world-renowned Golf Course Architect, Thomas McBroom. This Championship Eighteen Hole Golf Course weaves its way through old growth timber and over the gently rolling land of old Anderdon Township.
The course is designed in such a way to offer the player an endless variety of shot combinations. The bent grass tees and fairways are firm and meticulously groomed. They are shaped to offer a challenge to the accomplished golfer, while allowing an enjoyable experience to all skill levels.
The installation of a state of the art three-line irrigation system has further enhanced the reputation Pointe West maintains for its amazing course conditioning, which is second to none in Essex County.
