The Marshes represents the final design collaboration between Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and Sr. The designers were presented with an unusual site that encompassed many natural features such as wetlands, meadows, and hardwood forests. The course was carefully routed around these natural features to enhance the golfing experience and to provide a strategic interest. The result qualified as an Audubon Cooperative Wildlife Sanctuary Course and a championship style golf course, which was hosted five PGA of Canada Senior Championships amongst many local and provincial amateur championships.
The first six holes at The Marshes wind through hardwood forest and meadow. Considerable sculpting was performed to create the rolling terrain here among a rocky, tree-studded landscape. The design philosophy called for many bent grass chipping areas around generously contoured greens. The ninth and eighteenth greens share a putting surface that occupies 30,000 sq. ft, an apt metaphor for the entire golf course design, which is big by any standard, including standards of innovation.
With as many as five tee decks per hole, The Marshes' will challenge and reward golfers of every caliber. The course design recognized that the landscape presented a number of nooks and crannies ideally suited for par 3's. As a result, The Marshes features a somewhat unusual balance of six par-three, six par-four and six par-five holes.
