Wooden Sticks is a golf course like no other or, depending on how you look at it, like every other. This creative course can be found in Uxbridge, Ontario, Canada. The 18 holes of this course were designed by the innovative Mr. Ron Garl who besides creating 6 holes of his own, made the other 12 of the 18 holes replicas of some of the best holes on PGA tour. Imagine around the world in 30 days, but in this case it would be around the world of golf in 18 holes. At any given moment you could be transported from coast to coast of the United States, or to the true, original links courses of Scotland, all wrapped up in one glorious course.

Let’s take a quick tour shall we? The very first hole was modeled after Oakmont CC. The tees are elevated and the right side is framed nicely by a ‘church pew’ bunker. The 3rd hole is another beautiful hole, this one inspired by Augusta National’s 12th with a very shallow green. You continue on to 4th which copies the 13th hole at Augusta with the giant bunkers behind the hole, Masters Scoreboard and all.
In front of the 5th tee lies a large waste area and another one nearer to the green, just like some holes in Pine Valley. The 10th holes is modeled after the St. Andrews; a 385 yard par 4 with a wide fairway. The 11th hole has a very narrow green with a very large dune to the left of it, and a hole well protected by deep bunkers that takes a steep fall to the right inspired by the ‘Postage Stamp’ at Troon. The 12th is yet another that mimics Pine Valley with a rather long waste area lined by fescue on one side and bunker on the other.
The 14th brings some pretty nasty bunkers in the middle of the fairway inspired by ‘Hogan’s alley’ at Carnoustie. The difficult 15th is very similar to the ‘Road Hole’ at St. Andrews featuring a rock wall that goes along the length of the fairway and a stone road along the green similar to those at the Old Course. Pine Valley seems to be a favorite as we have yet another with waste area that requires clearing on the 16th hole. The 17th features an island green almost identical to that of the 17th at Sawgrass. The final hole of the course shares the same fairway as the 10th and features the iconic Swilcan Bridge, if you haven’t guessed it already this hole replicates the last hole of St. Andrews’ Old Course.
