Golf-Cobourg Golf Club

Old Cobourg Golf Clubhouse

The 1898 genesis of the Old Cobourg Golf Club that was located at the corner of Elgin and Division Streets was perhaps unique for a relatively small Ontario community. Its creation was due largely to the initiative, vision and cooperation or prominent local citizens and 6 American industrialists whose footprint may still be found in the remaining stately summer homes that are part of the Brookside Youth Centre situated on #2 Highway at the eastern edge of Cobourg.

Emerging in 2014 as the newly amalgamated public high school in Cobourg, Cobourg Collegiate Institute (CCI) has brought together the rich athletic histories of the former Cobourg District Collegiate Institute East and Cobourg District Collegiate Institute West schools.  Moving from medium sized “AA” schools (between 500-900 students) to a larger AAA school (1150 students in 2020), C.C.I. offers its students an extensive selection of sports teams, with the continued pride and success that was enjoyed by the former East and West schools.  

Golf-Dalewood Golf Club

Dalewood Golf

In the late 1960s members of the Cobourg Golf and Curling Club began the process of deciding whether or not they should join forces with the Port Hope Golf Club to establish a new 18-hole golf course to be located halfway between the two towns. The proposed location of the new course would be on Theatre and Dale Roads.

At the time, the Port Hope Golf Club leased land on the west side of Port Hope for their 9-hole course. Port Hope purchased 200 acres of land at a cost of $90,000 with an eye to constructing their own course at the site of the Posnikoff and Philp farms.
