Every May a shadow appears below the ridge of Fisher Peak. The shadow is an image of a bear walking the mountain. His arrival coincides with that of live bears coming out of hibernation. He ‘walks’ the mountain every clear evening until the end of October when he ‘hibernates’ again until the next spring. The shadow can only be seen from the cliffs on Shadow Mountain!
According to native folklore, the bear is the protector of the valley. When you golf at Shadow Mountain on a summer evening you may witness this phenomenon.
This is how the story of Shadow Mountain began!
Shadow Mountain is very proud to be creating a golf experience second to none! Their vision of molding a golf course in tune with “Mother Nature” and the natural contours, elevation changes and scenery of the property has come to fruition and they are very excited to provide you the opportunity of unforgettable golfing experiences.
In their search for an architect, they were very careful in selecting someone that shared their dream and philosophy in working with the natural landscape and not someone that would come in and “build” a golf course by moving a lot of material constructing false features. They feel they hit a “grand slam” in choosing Cooke Carleton International Golf Course Architects to design and oversee the construction of Shadow Mountain. Architect, Wayne Carleton, was on site throughout the logging, construction and grow in, tweaking here and there.
Each hole at Shadow Mountain has its own character and personality, meandering through mature forests and featuring large contoured greens, rolling Bentgrass fairways and rugged classic bunkering that will define each and every hole. The course will reward strategic, patient play from every level of player and take the golfer on a journey that is second to none in Canadian golf.
I hope you enjoy the Shadow Mountain golf experience as much as we enjoyed designing it!”
