It’s been said that Glencairn is the closest you’ll come to Scotland without crossing the Atlantic.
From the moment you pass the stone gates and wind your way between rock fences to the majestic multi-turreted clubhouse, you will feel like you just arrived at a Scottish links.
Designed by Thomas McBroom, Glencairn’s 27 links-style holes are punctuated by steep pot bunkers and framed by fescue that waves menacingly in the ever-present wind that buffets the Halton Hills just west of Toronto. Burns (narrow meandering streams) cut through the heaving landscape of the Niagara Escarpment. You’ll have to be creative on the tight lies that surround the mammoth undulating greens.
Why a Glencairn wedding? No two weddings are the same. Through ongoing discussions, we endeavor to understand the vision the bride and groom have for themselves, their day and their guests. Rather than concerning ourselves with trends, we create a day that best reflects the bride and groom.
It is important to ensure the tiniest details are taken care of so the couple and their guests can enjoy their day without having to worry about anything. This extra service may involve ensuring Grandma is comfortable, the torn bridesmaid dress gets a quick pinning and children have a video to watch. At other times, this may involve creating a special menu to reflect couples’ ethnic backgrounds. This day might include a martini or ice cream sundae bar or a late night nacho table or crèperie.
To host a wedding ceremony on site along with your photos and reception provides continuity to the day. Your outdoor photos in the garden or with views overlooking the course will be memorable.
