Golf traditions at Catawba Island Club go back to the 1920s, when there was a nine-hole golf course associated with the Catawba Cliffs Community and the Catawba Cliffs Beach Club. Today, CIC offers an Arthur Hills designed golf course that is kept in pristine condition.

Being one of the only golf courses along the shores of Lake Erie, CIC has been a popular destination for families and golfers for generations. The design provides an interesting and varied test that has delighted members and challenged us open hopefuls.
