John Daly Course Underway Near Niagara Falls

In October 2004, PGA Tour veteran John Daly attended a media day to discuss the signature course he designed just across the American border in Canada. Expected to open in summer 2005, the Thundering Waters Golf Club is located a mere 1,500 yards from the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.

Daly's layout is situated next to Marineland Theme Park, and will be the closest 18-hole golf course to the falls, one of the most popular tourist destinations in North America. It’s only two blocks from the Fallsview Tourist district, home of the new billion-dollar Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort.

Daly, a former PGA and British Open champion, and the Tour's 11-time driving distance leader, designed the upscale golf facility in conjunction with Canadian golf course architect Bo Danoff. "I love this location,” said Daly. “Niagara Falls is a world-renowned address and Thundering Waters is a landmark project.”

Niagara Falls is the fastest growing destination in Canada with 17 million visitors annually. "Our city is rapidly becoming the golf resort capital of Canada with two casinos, numerous luxury hotels, great attractions and restaurants, as well as over 40 great golf courses in the Niagara Region,” said Niagara Falls Mayor Ted Salci. “Thundering Waters Golf Club will greatly enhance Niagara's appeal to golfers from all over the world."

At the press event, Daly briefed both the media and dignitaries from southern Ontario and western New York about Thundering Waters and his future visits to Niagara Falls. For further information, call 905/353-1105 or visit
