Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club has been long regarded as one of the top golf courses in Canada, currently ranking in the top 20 on Canada’s list of best golf courses by Scoregolf magazine. It has hosted many famous people since its inception.
The Canadian Open is the world’s third oldest national golf championship and Shaughnessy hosted four successful Open events, from 1948 to 2011. In 1969, Shaughnessy hosted the LPGA Molson’s Canadian Open in September. Shaughnessy hosted the 42nd Annual Junior Americas Cup Tournament this past July.
Shaughnessy features 4 indoor, and 4 outdoor tennis courts, and has been host to some prestigious tennis events, such as the Federation Cup, and fundraising events featuring such talent as Mats Wilander.
Shaughnessy was the last championship-length golf course that A.V. Macan (1882-1964) designed in Canada. The Irish-born golf architect was highly regarded in the Pacific Northwest as a brilliant designer and an amateur golf champion in his earlier years.
