Walter J. Travis designed Lookout Point in 1919. Completed in 1922, Lookout is considered one of Travis’ finest and most challenging accomplishments. In the 1930's, Lookout’s General Brock Open was a regular stop on what is now the PGA Tour. Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Walter Hagen and Tony Penna are some of the many famous golfers who participated.
Over the years, Lookout Point has produced many champions. Of particular note are Marlene Stewart-Streit, Cathy Sherk, and Anne Sharpe. Anne has twice won the Ontario Ladies Championship and won the Ontario Senior Ladies in 1980. Both Marlene and Cathy went on to win many golf events including the Canadian and U. S. Women’s Amateur Championships. Their golf accomplishments have been recognized by their inductions into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame. Marlene was honoured by the world golf community by her induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame; the only Canadian to be so recognized. Marlene, Cathy and the late Gordon McInnis Sr., head professional at Lookout Point for over fifty years, have also been inducted into the Ontario Golf Hall of Fame.
