Q: What is the concept behind Ogilvy Lakes?
Ogilvy Lakes is an exclusive golf and country club community of no more than 100 luxury log homes with lake and mountain views set within almost 600 acres of beautiful Laurentian forest surrounded by two pristine lakes.
Q: What facilities will be available as part of the development?
Ogilvy Lakes has everything you need to enjoy your holiday together with a wealth of activities on your doorstep. An existing 18-hole golf course awaits you.
Already described as “the most scenic course in the Laurentians”, the course is being remodelled and improved by renowned architect Graham Cooke. Blessed by nature, the resort benefits from two beautiful lakes; perfect for fishing, swimming and non-motorised water sports.
Close to two hundred acres of mixed forest have been left virtually untouched for you to enjoy and explore with the hiking and biking trails, the only changes to its original state.
Other amenities include tennis courts, swimming pools and, at the heart of the resort, a beautiful log constructed clubhouse that houses the restaurant, the bar, an indoor-outdoor spa, a private cinema and extensive meeting and conference facilities.
Ogilvy Lakes residents will also benefit from a concierge service via the PC and internet access available in all the lodges. Using this service, you can order your next day’s groceries, book a tennis court, organise a round of golf or treat yourself to a massage.

Q: How will the running costs of the golf course be paid for?
For the first years of operation, the golf course will remain open to the public, but thereafter we aim to make this a private course for the exclusive use of Vivaldi-Resorts owners, i.e. for the owners and guests at both Ogilvy Lakes and Blueberry Lake Resort.
Vivaldi Resorts will sell a limited number of private memberships and this will fund the golf course operations. All owners will receive free membership to the club for five years.
