Welcome to Wing Park Golf Course

Wing Park golf course is a classic yet, sporty nine-hole golf course. Established in 1908, it is the oldest nine-hole municipal golf course. This superior golf course offers something for everyone. Expert players with only a couple of hours to spare or the amateur just beginning to learn their swing will all enjoy a day at Wing Park Golf Course.

Wing Park offers just the basics. Holes are regulation in length and the green size is small, typical of a Victorian period course. A few bunkers and a small water feature are the only obstacles on the course. Rental clubs are available and tee times are recommended, especially on the weekend.
