Northview G&CC: This Arnold Palmer design broke ground opened for play in 1994. The property had seen a number of ventures over the years but none proved to be successful. The soil make-up and elevation changes of the terrain challenged the design group but ultimately a suitable routing for the courses began to unfold. As work progressed, new and more inventive ideas presented themselves and Mr. Palmer took advantage of every opportunity to create exciting vistas and exceptional golf holes. Bringing his "go for broke” style of play to his course designs, Mr. Palmer developed several signature holes on both courses, now officially named “The Ridge” and “The Canal". Northview is also well-known as home to Mike Weir's first PGA Tour victory, the 199 Air Canada Championship played on The Ridge.
