Established in 1965, the South Port Golf Course is a scenic 9-hole layout that sprawls over 100 acres, minutes away from the beaches of Port Elgin and Southampton. Water hazards and neighbouring wetland areas are commonplace and come into play on five different occasions.
The signature hole at South Port is the 361 yard, par 4, 6th hole. Off the tee, one must decide to carry the water hazard 200 yards away or lay up in front before approaching the small and gently sloping green. Out of bounds along the left side of the fairway and mature bush to the right convince most golfers that laying up makes the most sense!
For those in search of a pleasurable round of golf while enjoying the summer activities offered in the Port Elgin area, look no further than the South Port Golf Course.
The new owners are Scott Bowman of Walkerton and Rick Elliott of the Harriston area. Elliott has a summer residence in Southampton and is a long-time member at South-Port. He is also the owner and president of Speare Seeds, a forage and turf seed business based in Harriston. Bowman is general manager of the same company and has many years of experience as a golf course superintendent.
