Whistle Bear is built from a community of members, their families and guests who enjoy recreational activities, exceptional golf and a place to relax and celebrate life’s milestones.

We value our history and embrace our community of members who share our passion and commitment in creating a premier golf club. As such, our goal is to attract a diverse group of members who want to be part of our social community, who want to enjoy a first class golf course, outstanding dining facilities and who want to be part of a vibrant and exciting atmosphere. 

Whistle Bear Golf Club is unique among the private clubs in Ontario, offering outstanding service without a hefty initiation fee. Our operating approach defines what a true Golf Club experience should be – golf and social elements for all members of the family. 

Joining one of Ontario’s premier private golf and country clubs has never been easier. Whistle Bear offers flexible options when choosing which membership category is right for you and/or any members of your family. Convenient tee times, a friendly staff of professionals and countless member events make Whistle Bear a superb choice when considering a private club.
