David's Lakeside!Wednesday, June 17, 2020

With the highly anticipated upcoming opening to Phase 2 operationally we have developed an outdoor restaurant concept called David’s Lakeside. 


A casual and enjoyable food and beverage facility we hope you take advantage of.

They will be honored at the operations for which they were issued. 


We will be accepting Dover Coast Resident cards for their prescribed discount but only with presentation of the actual resident card.  


David’s Lakeside will operate as a self-order system. Once your orders are prepared they will be delivered to your table by a team member. We will not be taking table side orders thus all orders will be placed and paid for at our ordering station.

Links at Dover Coast 2020 Golf Course Construction InformationWednesday, May 20, 2020

With the start of the new season we thought it prudent to send out some general information of where we are at with the construction of the “front 9” holes of the Links at Dover Coast.


We are happy to inform you that holes #2 and part of #9 that were seeding last season have begun to germinate. In having this seed start up we have now been able to stabilize the soil that was worked as to prevent any loss of shape due to erosion.


Holes 2 through 9 remain in various stages of completion. Number 2 being the one requiring only bunker sand and the green cavity yet to be filled.


Rough shaping has continued on holes 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 tee decks, with a greater emphasis on holes 5, 6 and 7 through the past winter.


We performed a modest change on hole 7 to move the tee decks a little closer to the ravine to help create a moderate shape to this beautiful par 4.


The pond we constructed, that is surrounded by holes 4 and 8, has stabilized as we had some concerns with water retention. The clay base has now sealed and our pond level is now confirmed.


A drain system from the pond at number 9/10, has now been joined to the pond at number 4/8 as a safety overflow and as a continuation to the primary drain through the ravine between holes 7 and 11.


The scrub brush along the ravine has been cleaned up, in order to provide additional air flow through this area to support and assist turf growth.


Due to COVID-19 when have stopped construction since March 15 and at this point we have yet to return to construction. Our hopes are that we can return to this as soon as possible.


Our commitment is to the completion of this project, however it is important to note that the development of this project, is linked directly to the development of our residential community. As there are some barriers we are trying to overcome with development issues, related to residential water availability, there is considerable patience required, as our efforts are being focused on finding a solution to potable water issues with the County.


We thank everyone for your patience and we look forward to updating you with further information as we continue to develop the region’s premier Golfing and Lifestyle Community.


We look forward to seeing on the course in 2020.

Meet our new 34 Passenger Coach Bus!Tuesday, July 10, 2018

The inaugural voyage of our new 34 passenger coach bus departed on Saturday May 26, 2018. The day was co-ordinated by John Casey and Ron Logel who from personal experience in the sunny south have taken up the highly social activity of lawn bowling. As we develop plans to build our own facility this contingent of happy travellers were hosted at the Hagersville Lawn Bowling Club nearby us in the town of Hagersville, Ont.  This bus will be used by residents for trips to ball games, plays, casinos, shopping trips, wineries, breweries and more!

Pickle Ball Courts in Full SwingWednesday, October 18, 2017

I am thrilled to announce that Dover Coast is the first adult resort style community to have Pickle Ball!

Our courts are in full swing this summer. What is pickle ball everyone asks? Well it is a game created with one thing in mind: fun. It was designed to be easy to learn and play whether you're five, eighty-five or somewhere in between. It is played on a court that is a quarter the size of a tennis court with special paddles that look similar to a table tennis paddle only larger and the ball is similar to a wiffle ball only smaller. It is widely played in the southern states and many communities there are switching their tennis courts over to pickle ball. We are with them on that one. Our residents are busy either teaching those who have never played or running out to buy their paddles to learn. Just one more example of our community coming together to enjoy life.

Lake Side Infinity DeckTuesday, October 17, 2017

The developer has outdone himself on this one! I am proud to say that the construction of this deck is on par with the high quality of the homes we are building. A lot of thought and planning went into it and it shows. The three tiered lake side infinity deck was much anticipated and well worth the wait. This beautiful huge stone structure gives an amazing view of majestic Lake Erie with lovely glass walls to allow an uninterrupted view even on those windy summer days.  A wonderful 30 foot swim dock with stairs and a ladder was also built on the shore for easy access into the warm waters. Even better is the fact that these amenities are for the prefered use of our residents.

Let the Games Begin....The Links is Now Open!!!!Thursday, July 2, 2015

It was a wonderful Canada Day here in Port Dover as the "Links at Dover Coast" championship golf course opened seven holes to the delight of the residents.  The opening ceremony began with a Scottish bagpiper leading the procession.  In attendance to cut the ribbon were John Lennox (Course Owner), Mark Stortini (COO), Darrell Huxham (Course Designer), mayor Charlie Luke and Council Member Jim Oliver.  The resounding consensus is that this course is a beauty and will only become more desirable as we add to it.  Many however found seven holes to be just right as it is quite challenging!  Hole #14 measures over 600 yards from the back tee deck.  You can find the current course configuration at "  as well as the green fees.  Thank you to all who made this day so memorable.  Our friendly golf pro Manny is available in the pro shop to answer any questions.  Pro Shop:  519-583-2118
