Did you know …

The area that now makes up Whispering Lakes Golf Course has an interesting past …

The 18-hole golf course originally opened in 1960 on Riverside Drive between Vineyard and Archibald avenues, but the property wasn't always meant to house a golf course. In 1914, Ontario purchased 175 acres to use as a sewer farm.

Through the years the city acquired more and more land and by 1959 Ontario had 242 acres. A contract was negotiated with Ontario Golf Inc to run the facility and the following year it was renamed Whispering Lakes Ontario Public Course. Soon the golf course was overshadowed by its clubhouse, the Royal Tahitian, which garnered national attention.

Whispering Lakes Golf Course was a PGA Tour stop in its heyday, with golf legends such as Al Geiberger winning here.

Performers such as Duke Ellington, Dorothy Dandridge and George Shearing were part of the Garden Concert series. In 1967, The Four Tops, James Brown, Bobby Darin, the Platters and Ray Charles performed at Whispering Lakes.

Due to deteriorating conditions, the clubhouse was torn down in 2010. A temporary clubhouse was brought in while work began on the new facility.
