In order to get to the course use this online map or follow one of these methods below.

Method 1: Here's how to get here from the West end (Simple but longer than method 2)

Take 416 south to Hwy 43 (Kemptville exit). Go East (left) on 43 until the first flashing yellow intersection (Hwy 22 - South Gower Drive). Turn left onto South Gower Drive. Turn right after 3-4 km onto French Settlement Rd. (our road!). We are 10368, but until the first stop sign you pass the numbers are going the wrong way. Don't be confused, just keep going. We are on the right a few kilometers past that first stop sign. If you cross a paved road you've gone 1 km too far. (and hit Stage Coach Rd)

Method 2: From the west end again. A bit convoluted but quicker (by about 15-20min)

Take 416 south to the River Road exit (hwy 19) which is the next exit past Dilworth road) (and Dilworth is past Roger Stevens...) Anyway, turn right from the exit ramp stop sign. The road goes over the highway and round a bend, then you'll find your turn on the right (south), Regional Road 22 (South Gower Drive). Drive a couple of km to French Settlement Road (I think it's the second road you pass...) (There's no stop sign on South Gower Drive at French Settlement, so don't miss it!) Turn left (east) onto French Settlement Road. We are approximately 5km along French Settlement Road, (#10368). Don't be fooled by the numbers initially, as they will be going in the wrong direction until the first stop sign. Just pay attention to them after the first stop sign. If you make it to another paved road (Stage Coach Rd.) you've gone east 1km too far...

Citizen box on the right. Vertical cedar siding. Bunch of yahoos throwing discs. Can't miss it.

Method 3: how to get here from central Ottawa.

Take Bronson south. Keep on Bronson as it becomes the Airport Parkway. Just before the airport, exit onto Lester. Take Lester left (east) until the first traffic lights (Albion). Take Albion Road south (turn right onto Albion), until it ends at Mitch Owens Road. Jog right (west) for a couple of km then left (south again) at Stage Coach Road (the first traffic lights on Mitch Owens). Follow Stage Coach Road for 2 stop signs (first is regional road 6 - Snake Island Road), second is regional road 4 - Dalmeny Road) Takes about 5 minutes per stop sign. You are now 4 minutes away - or will be if you followed these directions...) Continue on Stage Coach. You will pass a sign "Welcome to Dundas County". We are about 2 km past this sign. The next road is French Settlement Road. (woo hoo! - Finally!). Turn right on French Settlement, we are 1km down, on the left. At 10368. Citizen box on the left. Vertical cedar siding. Can't miss it.

Method 4: Central again, but I use this method if I'm starting anywhere near Hunt Club & Merivale

Take Riverside south. Just after the airport take Limebank south (it is RIGHT AFTER THE AIRPORT - at the bottom of the hill, and splits off to the left...) Take Limebank until Mitch Owens Road (at a traffic light). Turn left and take Mitch Owens east until Manotick Station Road (just after Bakker's General Store and Gas Bar). Take Manotick Station Road until it ends at regional road 6. Jog right then left again at Blanchfield Road. Continue south on Blanchfield for 2 stop signs. Turn right onto Stage Coach road. Notice the house immediately opposite you as you turn, since you'll need to find this road on your way back home. Follow Stage Coach south for 1 stop sign (Dalmeny road or regional road 4). You are now 4 minutes away - or will be if you followed these directions...) Continue on Stage Coach - don't turn onto Dalmeny! You will pass a sign "Welcome to Dundas County". We are about 2 km past this sign. The next road is French Settlement Road. (woo hoo! - Finally!). Turn right on French Settlement, we are 1km down, on the left. At 10368. Vertical cedar siding. Can't miss it.

Method 5: How to get here from the East end

Take Walkley to Conroy. Take Conroy south until it ends at Bank street. Take Bank south to Leitrim. Take Leitrim west for one traffic light (Albion) Take Albion south until it ends at Mitch Owens. Follow the directions above for getting here from Central Ottawa (method 3).

Method 6: The far-east end.

From Russell, go south to Route 400. Go west for about 15 minutes. (past Hwy 31) until a stop sign with cross road Stage Coach Rd. Turn left (south) and follow the directions from method 3 above. (route 400 gets a name change along the way to Regional Road 4 or Dalmeny Road)
