The Idylwylde Golf and Country Club is a family-oriented eco-friendly club that supports our community while providing outstanding golf, curling, dining and social experiences for the enjoyment of all members and guests.
Located between Laurentian University and beautiful Lake Ramsey and Nepahwin, the 6000-yard golf course provides magnificent views. Founded in 1922, it was developed from the old Howey Farm on the south shore of Ramsey Lake. Early golfers had to make their way via water taxi across the lake until an adequate road was built to accommodate traffic.
The original frame clubhouse was located near the current tee on the 5th hole and was destroyed by fire in 1962. A new clubhouse was subsequently built on the present location adjacent to Lake Nepahwin.
A merger with the Granite (Curling) Club created a new activity. During constructions of the curling rink, the Club expanded its kitchen, dining and meeting room facilities to accommodate a larger year-round clientele.
The Idylwylde soon developed expertise in hosting and catering to large club and community social functions and now boasts one of the finest professional catering facilities in the North. Everything from private functions, meetings, club events and weddings are scheduled around golf tournaments and bonspiels throughout the year.
