Notes:
Golf was very popular and with the backing of American vacationers, the Cobourg Golf Club was established in 1898. It became a social centre and each year a grand dance was held here. The club cost $800 and had dressing rooms for the ladies and gentlemen, a verandah along the entire length and grass cut by a horse lawn-mower. Originally the first golf club was east of Ontario street, thirteen acres, south of the CN spur, which later became the fifth and sixth fairwyas. By 1913 the railway was quite a hazard so the land to the south was sold and land facing Division Street was purchased. In 1914 the club house was moved to a site at the corner of Elgin and Division Streets (now occupied by McKeen Motors), enlarged and remodelled. It almost closed during WWII due to lack of interest but was rejuvenated by 1948.
