Crozier is proud to work with Golf Canada, Osprey Valley, Hicks Design Studio, and Glen Schnarr & Associates Inc. to create a new Home for Canadian Golf – a momentous project that will see the National Sport Federation relocate its corporate base of operations to Osprey Valley in Caledon, Ontario.
Osprey Valley is a renowned 54-hole golf facility in the Region of Peel, located in the heart of Caledon. The property is currently undergoing a significant privately funded expansion and commercial development. “Our vision to be a world leader in golf contemplates more than just a physical building—culture, collaboration, and innovation are critical elements,” said Golf Canada CEO Laurence Applebaum. “Establishing a new headquarters and a Canadian golf campus with our partners to meet, play, train, plan, celebrate and collaborate, represents a transformative moment to advance the sport.”
Crozier has worked closely with Osprey Valley, the Town of Caledon, and the Region of Peel to facilitate approvals and construction
for the expansion project. This project includes the construction of a new clubhouse and conference amenities as well as improvements to the practice facility and guest experience with accommodations and hosting facilities onsite.
For Osprey Valley President Chris Humeniuk, partnering with Golf Canada and industry partners to bring a Canadian golf campus to life is part of the ongoing story of Osprey Valley becoming a signature destination for Canadian golf and an effort to uplift the game of golf in Canada. “Our family has long dreamed of Osprey Valley as a great Canadian golf destination, and we believe this announcement is a wonderful addition to the momentum we’ve been fortunate to experience in recent years,” said Chris Humeniuk.
Phase one of the Home for Canadian Golf project –which will include the corporate headquarters, a reinvigoration of the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum, and a 30,000 square foot community putting green inspired by the Himalayas Putting Course in St. Andrews – will break ground in 2023 with expected completion by 2025.
Hicks Design Studio has been selected by Golf Canada as the architect of record to bring the Canadian golf campus to life. Working alongside Hicks Design Studio and Glen Schnarr & Associates Inc., Crozier will provide the civil, onsite servicing, water resources, hydrogeological, transportation, electrical engineering, and natural heritage coordination design.
The announcement of the Home for Canadian Golf follows several years of due diligence by Golf Canada to explore a long-term solution and forward-looking vision for the relocation of its corporate headquarters as well as the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame, which are currently located on the grounds of Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario.
Once complete, the Home for Canadian Golf will be a multifaceted, world-class tourist facility that will support community recreational benefits; drive inclusivity and community among equity-deserving youth; and become a foundational pillar that supports grassroots participation and high-performance golf.
