8 and 3/4 Reasons to Join Orr Lake Golf Club
REASON #1 -A fun golf club should start with a fun
golf course. Orr Lake Golf Club’s par 71 plays to only 5700 yards from the back tees. Not a long course by any stretch, but this golf course is set up with lots of hole variety and great hazard placements to keep the game interesting. Our famous, or in some cases infamous hole #2 and hole #6 are 2 great examples of this. Hole #2 is only around 100 yards but plays downhill over a pond and has captured many a ball. Hole #6 is (from the tips) a 600 yard par 5 that requires 5 good shots to obtain par. We have Par 3’s as short at 97 yards and as long as 175 yards, Par 4’s as short as 230 yards and as long as 400 yards and Par 5’s as short as 450 yards and as long as 600 yards. This helps make the layout of Orr Lake fun and interesting for you to play.
REASON #2 – Constant reinvestment.
Since the new owners took over they have been constantly reinvesting their money back into the club demonstrating that their primary interest is in your enjoyment. The irrigation system has been upgraded and added onto so that even through the most stressful conditions, Orr Lake GC is kept green and nicely playable. Clubhouse/proshop improvements have taken place every winter so they are ready to host your weddings/anniversary or birthday parties. Regular upgrades that have minimal impact on play are a constant sight at Orr Lake Golf Club many of which have been done at the suggestions of members. With the changes we make you know our goal is your enjoyment of spending time here.
REASON #3 – We like our Members!
One of the greatest compliments we receive is that we like our members and they feel it. As a semi-private golf course, members are an important part of our business and we like to make them feel that way. With only accepting 125 members our goal is to get to know the names of our members, your preferred tee times and try to accommodate your needs as best we can. If you are looking to join a club where you feel you are part of a club, then Orr Lake Golf Club is a great spot for you.
REASON #4 – Lots of opportunity to meet other members.
Once you join our club if you are looking to meet other people we will introduce you to people who enjoy playing at a similar time to you. One of the other great ways to meet more of the members is to join one of our 3 Leagues. All our Leagues are about relaxing and enjoying the day out with other people. With a Seniors League, Ladies League and Men’s League we have lots of opportunities for you to meet new people. Great for golf memberships close to Barrie, Wasaga Beach, Midland, Penetanguishene and Orillia
REASON #5 – Great value and payment options.
Not only do you get to play a fun golf course in good condition, you get to do it without breaking the bank. We have very reasonable and competitive prices for our area and you can even take advantage of a monthly payment option. If you invest in your next year’s membership in September you even get to start playing in September for the following year! That’s an extra 2 months of golf for FREE!!! If that’s not enough when you purchase your following years membership in the fall we also give you 2 Guest Passes so you can treat a couple of friends AND 4 half cart rentals so you can ride with them as well!!
REASON #6 – Pro Shop Savings!
We know that our members like to show off where they play their golf through wearing logo shirts and other clothing and that occasionally you will lose a ball and need to buy a new one so “We pay the tax” on all proshop items for our Members. Yes that’s right no more trying to figure out the tax on the advertised prices. For members only the price you see is what you pay on everything in the shop including “On Sale” items. This lets you shop faster and easier in our Proshop.
REASON #7 – Special members lunch meals on weekdays.
Over the last 7 years we have put a lot of effort into moving to a “homemade” food menu. Our food is simple, really good and convienent to purchase when you are already here. Over the last couple years we have been offering our special menu to our 2 Senior Leagues but we are now offering it to members all week. So now Monday-Friday between 11am-2pm members can eat off of our special menu. More great savings and convenience for you as a member.
REASON #8 – Reduced fees for your guest.
We know that you have friends or family that might occasionally want to come out and play a round with you so we want them to feel special as well. “We pay the tax” on the green fees and cart rentals when you bring out a guest to play with you. That’s a 13% savings for your guest!
REASON 8 3/4 – Helping you host your party.
Orr Lake Golf Club is home to a newly redecorated dance hall with a dance floor that originates from 1928. We host Weddings, Anniversary Parties, Birthday Parties and other banquet events. As a member of Our Club we waive the Hall Rental Fee for any banquet based event you host at Orr Lake Golf Club. That means one less cost for you holding your special event at a location you already enjoy being at!
