Knollwood Golf and Country Club was founded in 1970 by Jack Harris, one of the most respected golf course superintendents in Canadian history. After serving as superintendent for 12 years at St. Georges Golf Club in Toronto where he held the 1949 Canadian Open. Years later Jack moved to Ancaster and took over the most coveted of all superintendent positions at the venerable Hamilton Golf and Country Club where he remained for 17 years. In 1968, Jack and his wife Hazel, purchased a 50-acre farm on Shaver Road in Ancaster and began to work a 9-hole layout onto the property. With his sons Jim and John, they planted thousands of trees, and there amidst the natural beauty of the land, he laid out a course of memorably distinct golf holes. In 1970, The Old Course at Knollwood opened for play and over the years grew to become an 18 hole experience in a style respecting the heritage of Ontario’s historic courses.
