There’s no better time to hit the links in Wayne County, especially when a long-running course there is getting a major facelift.

Golfers played on the 170 acres Ontario Golf Club in Wayne County since 1928. The links tradition continues with a new owner investing a lot of time and money into making it one of the best courses around.

Shaun Fico joked that he had never swung a golf club, but he knew how to run a good business. When the Ontario Golf Club came up for sale, he bought it because he knows how much this place means to this community.

“We are very proud to be the ones who saved this property,” Fico said. “Don’t forget it’s a staple in Ontario. If it weren’t for us to buy this property unfortunately it would probably go to the developers or weed. So basically the goal here is to make it a destination point.”

There are miles and miles of new paved cart paths, manicured greens, tees, roughs, fairways and bunkers with new sand.

“The greens are in absolutely terrific condition,” said Perinton golfer Nelson Mathias.

This is a public golf course. Coming soon a new pool membership opportunity and you don’t need to play golf to join the pool club. Pub 235 on the Green is also open to the public. Chef Alan Bailey has created quite a menu and you can’t beat the view on the course.

“We fell in love with this property and it was a total labor of love to do everything,” said Fico. “There is no other vantage point like this anywhere. You can see everyone walk in on 18 and leave on one and sit here and enjoy dinner. There is no atmosphere like this everywhere around the corner.
