Golf Course History:
When people say they are going to take up golf in their retirement, it does not usually involve building an 18-hole golf course. John (Butch) Langtry had a very different idea of retirement. In the Spring of 2002 he decided to convert a 175 acres of Langbrook Farms into a golf course and "country club". With the help of Duck Construction, Duncan Cameron and David Urquhart, a 9-hole golf course was designed. Over 200 trees have been planted and four new ponds have been dug. The golf course and driving range first opened in the Spring of 2003. The country theme is central to the design. The course is decorated with antique farm equipment, which shows Butch's pride in farming history. The course's slogan "A Stroke Back In Time" is a tribute to a simpler life and nostalgia for farming of yesteryear. In the Fall of 2005, the back nine holes were added making Langbrook Meadows a Par 71, 5766 yard, 18-hole golf course. The back nine feature three challenging dog legs, ponds, and breathtaking scenery. With the rich, sandy loam soil, the course has excellent drainage and is often one of the earliest opening courses in the area.
Upon Butch's unexpected passing in January 2007, his three daughters, Sara, Sharon, and Sandra assumed ownership of Langbrook Meadows. They continued operation of the golf course until the summer of 2014.
In the summer of 2014, Tom Langtry and Tina Langtry (siblings and Hammond Natives) purchased the golf course and restaurant from Butch's three girls. They have already completed several upgrades to the buildings, and upgrades to the golf course greens and tee boxes got underway in the fall.
This rustic 18-hole Par 71 golf course is quiet and picturesque. It offers challenging play and the cooling winds from the St. Lawrence River just 1 1/5 miles away. We invite you to make the trip for your next golf outing. We think you will be pleasantly surprised.
