A Distinct Identity

Lingan Golf Club was first established in 1895 at Victoria Park in Sydney.  The golf club moved to a new site at Lingan Bay in 1909 and eventually found its current home in MacLean’s Crossing in 1913.  The original 9 hole layout was designed and constructed by Dominion, Nova Scotia native and Maritime Amateur Golf Champion Malcolm Martin.  In 1922, the famed golf course architect Stanley Thompson came to the area and redesigned the original 9 hole layout.  The development of the second nine holes began in 1964 with C.E. (Robbie) Robinson as the architect.

Lingan Golf Club is one of the oldest golf clubs in existence in Canada with a strong history and tradition.  The golf club has hosted Canadian and Provincial golf championships with the most recent being the Nova Scotia Men’s Amateur Championship in 2008.  

The club maintains a sizable membership and also offers green fees options to the public.  There is a practice range, putting and chipping greens and a full service pro shop on site.  Club and power cart rentals are available for those who require them, although Lingan is a very walkable course and typically plays in under four hours.   Jamie MacIntosh and his professional staff offer a wide variety of lessons and group clinics.  

Flavor 19 is a contemporary restaurant and lounge located at the Lingan Golf Club.  Open year round to the general public, the menu will tempt your taste buds while premium cocktails and mini desserts make your meal complete.  Enjoy the luxury of the private dining room or take in some of the best East Coast Musicians in the main room.  Lingan Golf Club is extremely pleased to have Flavor Fine Foods and Catering operating its food and beverage services.
