When golfers chipping their way out of a sand trap forget their frustration and start praising the quality of the white sand, you know its' a great course.
"This is not a clay field, as some used to claim, it's a competitive course,"!
The course is in excellent shape, thanks to the club president, Arnie Palmer, and his grounds crew. Arnie has been with the Tilbury Golf Course for approximately 33 years, so he knows a thing or two about transforming a golf course into a thing of beauty. Both members and public golfers have been impressed with incredible changes achieved through the latest club efforts. Members have caught the excitement, volunteering for cleanup projects and applauding upgrades.
One member said; 'It's like everyday there's something new!'
The club was much loved for 40 years but was in need of changes and upgrades. Built by members in 1968 as a nine hole course, Tilbury Golf Club received new life in 1992 with the purchase of more land and an expansion to an 18 hole, par 71 course. The curling rink and restaurant drew members during the winter months. The club has set about raising the standards which discerning golfers and club members expect today, and working to create a recreational facility for the Town of Tilbury.
Tilbury Golf Club has been rejuvenated inside and out. To date, the course's improvements include: a new bridge for holes 10 and 15, another bridge for holes 13 and 14; drainage for the sand traps; new sand and the creation of two more sand traps; two green alterations; continued improvements to course irrigation; logo flags; paved approaches for holes and the addition of new golf carts. The new snack bar and beverage cart refresh golfers during play.
The grounds are now more beautiful and accessible, with concrete paving around the pro shop; paved parking lot; three new gardens; attractive sineage; dead tree stumps removed and 200-plus trees planted for a future challenge. A new maintenance tractor and a rebuilt older tractor keep the grounds looking their best.
Although our course has been greatly improved, our rates are still very affordable, both during the week and on weekends,
and our membership rates, are very reasonable.
Inside the clubhouse, some of our updates include: a bar, lighting, interior decoration and TVs in the dining area, patio furniture; carpeting & painting upgrades, surveillance system, conference room upgrades, Fully stocked Pro Shop stocked with an online tee reservations and club handicap computer system.
