(KEMBLE, Ontario) -- Cobble Beach -- Georgian Bay's extraordinary waterfront golf resort community two hours northwest of Toronto -- announces its "Inn Stay-and-Play" package ideal for memorable summer golf getaways.
Starting at $169 (per person, double occupancy) the offer features one round on the acclaimed Doug Carrick-designed course, luxury accommodations in the Inn at Cobble Beach, and continental breakfast. Enjoyment of the resort's many first-class amenities -- Jacuzzi, steam room, 14km of trails, beach club, and more -- is also included.
Widely recognized as one of Carrick's best layouts, Cobble Beach Golf Links features water views from every hole along its 7,134-yard routing. Pure-rolling fescue greens with challenging pin locations emphasize strategically-placed approach shots. Closely mown chipping areas, small pot bunkers and hollows surrounding greens provide for the classic bump-and-run opportunities associated with links-style courses.
Carrick and construction / general manager John Anderson deftly mixed hole-lengths and orientations to build a sense of anticipation culminating on the par-3 17th and par-5 18th holes. The former leads out to the bay with the lighthouse as a backdrop; the latter hugs the hummocky terrain of the shoreline, rising subtly before giving way to a large, receptive green.
"The Inn Stay and Play is designed for small groups and couples who relish an elite golf resort experience with incomparable amenities," says Rob McLeese, President of Cobble Beach. "As guests enter the gates and drive down toward the Bay to the Inn, relaxation replaces the stresses of everyday life. With our wide-variety of residential offerings, this weekend experience can become a year-round, four-season lifestyle."
Complementing the stay is Cobble Beach's chef-driven Sweetwater Restaurant & Bar. Conveniently located at the Inn, it features classical cuisine with modern innovation highlighting organic, local and seasonal ingredients for all appetites. Lunch and dinner are enjoyed in the dining room, or fireside lounge with an intimate gastropub ambiance.
