News from Ontario’s Niagara Parks Commission
Posted May 10th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
(A Brief Foreword from NAL publisher Doug Draper – Although it has become so costly to play golf at most courses that I can hardly afford to play the game any more, the price is still right at this wonderful par-3 course where I have fond memories of my father taking me to learn the game when I was mid-way through my teens.
In keeping with the spirit of the Niagara Parks Commission’s more than century old mission to preserve a corridor of green along the Canadian side of the Niagara River corridor, the Oak Hall course is also a nice, green place where the trees are tall and thick enough to block the view of the casino towers and other Vegas-like structures nearby. And you can still the roar of the rapids and Horseshoe Falls below.
It all makes for a very nice place in Niagara, Ontario to go.)
Niagara Falls, Ontario – The Niagara Parks Commission (NPC) is delighted to announce that its Oak Hall Par 3 golf course will open for the 2016 golf season on Friday, May 13.
The par 3 course is located on the grounds of NPC’s administrative offices, at 7400 Portage Road, in the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Originally opened on June 17, 1966, the NPC Oak Hall Par 3 course is a great spot for those learning to play the game of golf. It is also an ideal location for those looking to improve their iron play and short games.
The picturesque course covers a total of 1,050 yards, with no hazards or forced carries. It is an enjoyable walking course and ideal for those who have limited time but still enjoy the challenge and enjoyment, which golf provides. The course offers great value and has a convenient location that allows golfers to hear the roar of the thundering Niagara Falls, only a short distance away.
When opened, the Oak Hall Par 3 course will operate daily until Labour Day. Green fees are $8.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors (60+) and $5.00 for junior golfers 19 years of age and younger. There are also pull carts and club rentals available for public use.
The Niagara Parks Commission is committed to a vision of Ontario’s Niagara Parks as one that Preserves a rich heritage, Conserves natural wonders, and Inspires people world-wide. Founded in 1885, NPC is an Operational Enterprise Agency of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. Its mission is to protect the natural and cultural heritage along the Niagara River for the enjoyment of visitors while maintaining financial self-sufficiency.
