Humber College PGM Invitational Tournament Information

It has been said that Glencairn is the closest you’ll come to Scotland without crossing the Atlantic. 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. Narrow 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.
