Dock at Cobble Beach marks new destination for seaplanes on Georgian Bay

Cobble Beach Golf Links & Resort in Grey Bruce, Ontario, now has 260 feet of direct waterfront access, marking a new destination for seaplanes on Ontario’s Georgian Bay.

Cobble Beach’s golf course, designed by Doug Carrick, is now accessible by seaplane with the launch of a new floating day dock.

“This is one of the largest day docks in the area, and we are very excited to provide a new recreational and commercial destination to communities all around Georgian Bay and beyond,” says Rob McLeese, President and Owner of Cobble Beach.

Officials note that golf enthusiasts from the U.S can clear customs at nearby Wiarton Airport.

The addition to Cobble Beach took close to nine months to complete with a price tag of more than $350,000. Built to withstand the high winds of Georgian Bay, the reinforced dock is surrounded by 65 feet of wave attenuators, weighing 48,000 pounds and protruding 6 feet deep to ensure calm waters on the south side of the dock along Cobble Beach’s 1.6 km of shoreline.

Located 6 km north of the Owen Sound Marina, the dock at Cobble Beach is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Guests can enjoy complimentary shuttle service from the shore to Cobble Beach’s clubhouse with a quick phone call to the Proshop upon arrival, 519-370-2173 x 104.
