About the Designer
After more than three decades in the business, Thomas McBroom remains one of the leaders in the Canadian golf business. With award-winning courses ranging from the incredible Tobiano in Kamloops, BC, to the heralded private Muskoka retreat of Oviinbyrd, McBroom’s distinctive vision for golf architecture has seen his designs become some of the most recognized in Canada. International in scope, McBroom has designed courses across Canada, and also in the Caribbean and Asia, and has been recognized by the National Post as one of the most influential people in the sport of golf in Canada.
Deer Ridge was among McBroom’s most successful early designs, paving a pathway for later courses. The foundation of McBroom’s work is a profound understanding and fascination with the history and tradition of the game in combination with his own unique creative flair and vision, which is ever-present at Deer Ridge.
The hallmark of Deer Ridge is a design that takes full advantage of modern technology but stays true to the traditions and spirit of the game's early courses.
