Legends on the Niagara – This breathtaking natural setting that was carved out of historic terrain is a one-of-a-kind golf complex. Part of Legends’ 1,000 acres is home to the preserved 1814 Chippawa Battlefield, located adjacent to its two unrivaled 18-hole championship courses – Ussher’s Creek and Battlefield – that have been ranked in the top 20 courses in Canada by The Globe & Mail. Designed by two leading Canadian architects, Douglas Carrick and Thomas McBroom, this “absolutely inspired” complex also features Chippawa, a fun and challenging 9-hole short course, a Teaching Academy and a 45-acre 360-degree practice facility.
A meandering entrance way gives you a glimpse of the meticulously manicured courses and leads to a spectacular stone and cedar clubhouse. The exterior of this two-story pavilion was inspired by the image of a 19th century fort, but it incorporates all the features of a destination golf clubhouse, including shopping for all your golfing needs at the Pro Shop. Large expanses of glass throughout the clubhouse’s lounge and terrace offer a panoramic view overlooking the Battlefield course and its 20-acre lake – the perfect venue to end your day with cocktails and a fine dinner prepared by our skilled chefs.
