It’s a rarity in the golf world – an early joint effort between two architects who went on to shape the landscape of golf around the world. And it’s for sale.
Sotheby’s Realty is handling the listing for the Norway Bay Golf Club in Bristol. The golf course itself was crafted by Stanley Thompson and Robert Trent Jones, who eventually became leading luminaries in their field. Anther young design master, Geoffrey Cornish, was also part of the process. The course design dates to December 4, 1937.
The club’s remarkable history was detailed in a Flagstick feature profile earlier this year. The text can be found at this link.
Built near the shores of the Ottawa River in the 1930’s the nine hole golf course is being offered for $1,695,000. That includes a clubhouse built in 1994 along with the 30.99 hectare property.
The club has had three ownership groups since it’s founding by the McCredie family with Linda Thompson and John Kilgour the operators since 2009.
