It's closer than you think.
Prescott Golf Club is a beautiful semi-private course in the town of Prescott, just 50 minutes away from the western part of Ottawa — and even closer for those more south. Overlooking the St. Lawrence River, Prescott is a classic-style course that's well-worth the little drive.
As one of the first courses to open in the spring, and one of the last to close for the winter, it tends to remain in fantastic condition throughout the entire season.
Aptly titled "Knock on Wood", possibly in part because of the numerous scattered pines ready to penalize anyone straying from the fairway, its 385-yard par-four opening hole becomes easy if you stripe it solidly down the pipe.
