Situated on the shores of Humber Bay, The Boulevard Club is a site for special occasions, athletic pursuits and—of course—lakefront endeavors.

This establishment traces its roots back to 1905, when a number of enthusiastic paddlers convened to share their passion. Over time, their little club expanded its membership and accommodated other physical activities like hockey, softball, and bowling.

Today, The Boulevard Club is a full-fledged recreational spot where folks can stay fit, enjoy classy dishes, and ride a sea vessel along Lake Ontario. Lifetime membership costs over $31,000, not counting the $293 that you’d have to pay in monthly dues.

Pros

  • Emphasis on sports and fitness
  • Aquatic activities like yachting and dragon boating

  • Some reports of dissatisfaction with food

Great decision for us

Beautiful private Toronto club by the water. Lots of water activities in the summer and endless activities during the winter season. We hosted our wedding here 15 years ago and had the best time. 10 years after that night we joined and it was a great decision for us and our kids. Many younger families of late and a very robust programming for kids. We always enjoy our time there as a family.

CONTACT INFORMATIONPhone: (416) 447-5575

OPERATING HOURSMon-Sun: 7:00am – 10:00pm

Donalda Club is a member course that offers indoor and outdoor delights alike for its members. Those who crave the sunlight can dive into a 25-meter pool or enjoy rounds of golf at a USGA-standard course. Meanwhile, folks who prefer indoor amenities can enjoy squash courts, golf simulators, and a fine-dining experience in a log timbered facility.

Donalda has a fascinating history that spans over a century. The original Donalda structure was a farmhouse owned by David Dunlap, formerly the treasurer of a mining company. Dunlap had purchased other parcels of land adjacent to the farmhouse, and it was this surrounding area that his family remodeled as a country club.

Since the 1960s, Donalda has been a recreational haven for sports enthusiasts and vacationers. Whether you’re into the ice sport of curling or you simply want to get away from the urban jungle, Donalda is the place to be.

Pros

  • Good facilities for various sports
  • Rustic experience in a farmhouse setting
  • Excellent customer service

Cons

  • Inconsistency in food quality

Customer Reviews

CONTACT INFORMATIONPhone: (416) 231-3393

OPERATING HOURSMon-Sun: 7:00am – 8:30pm

The core of St. George’s Golf and Country Club is its sought-after golf course, which has hosted the Canadian Open on multiple occasions. St. George’s last hosted the 2022 edition of the tournament, which was won by Rory McIlroy.

That’s one of the latest milestones in the history of this clubhouse, which opened back in 1930. In the decades that followed, St. George’s would also become a hub for fine dining, training and fitness, and special events.

There’s an argument to be made that this Club’s strongest suit is actually its wine list. Duly recognized by the World of Fine Wines, the wine selection at St. George’s is a real ace in the hole.

Pros

  • Prestigious golf course
  • Highly celebrated wine selections
  • Preferred setting for weddings

Cons

  • Long wait for food and drinks

Customer Reviews

Absolutely stunning

Came here for a corporate event. The views were absolutely stunning and the grounds were well maintained. The food was well seasoned and prepared. The servers were polite, friendly and attentive.

Great venue for upscale events or weddings. The indoor decor is quaint, classic and regal. Outdoor is majestic, relaxing and scenic.

Gorgeous all on its own

We had our wedding at St George’s in November and it was absolutely incredible!! The venue is stunning – we barely had any decorations, only 2 flower arrangements, because the elegant building was gorgeous all on its own. The food was delicious and we received so many compliments – especially on the late-night fish-and-chips stand: people are still raving about it! Alyssa the event coordinator was an absolute dream: she was so prompt and helpful, she answered my millions of questions and she made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. I knew that our wedding would go off without a hitch because Alyssa and the rest of the St George’s staff would be able to handle it.

In truth, I miss going to St George’s now that our wedding is over and we aren’t members – it is such a warm, inviting place, perfect for a classic, romantic wedding.

Staff and facilities are awesome

I’ve had the opportunity to be a guest at Weston a couple times. The course is wonderful and the staff and facilities are awesome. I was particularly impressed by how the club’s staff treated me like I had been a lifelong member. I loved my visits to Weston G&CC and hope to be able to visit again soon.

The course is always perfectly presented

I’ve played golf all around the world and Scarboro is well up there on my top courses.

It’s really well designed (Tillinghast) and the greens staff really have a strong appreciation for the course, greens and nature around the course. The greens are lightening fast during the peak of the summer and are a real test. The course is always perfectly presented.

This has been my sixth year as a member and the course continues to be fun and challenging to play!
