New Oxford County Golf Course Name Unveiled, Adds Top Chef

The Oxford Hills received its name from a crowdsourcing campaign that generated close to 2,300 submissions. The course, undergoing massive reinventions, aims to revitalize golf in Southwestern Ontario while becoming an entertainment hub for Oxford County.

[Ingersoll, Oct. 30, 2020]— Extensive renovations of the course formerly known as The Mount Elgin Golfers Club (located just south of Ingersoll, Ontario) are currently underway. The first complete project? A new, crowdsourced name. The outcome of close to 2,300 submissions provided through the NameYourCourse.ca contest, the new golf club, and overall development, will now be called The Oxford Hills.

The new, Oxford County-based ownership group is investing considerable dollars into the project—improving the property, redesigning the golf course, and installing a brand-new clubhouse complete with fine dining restaurant.

It is on that last endeavor that the incredibly talented Eric Boyar, owner and chef of “sixthirtynine” (located in Woodstock, Ontario), as well as his wife and co-owner, Jennifer Boyar, agreed to bring their efforts to the development. Their highly regarded culinary skills, notoriety for top-tier service, and focus on creating refined dining experiences will ensure this new Oxford County establishment will become a mainstay with local residents and beyond. This new on-site restaurant experience will also service any events and weddings hosted at the property.

This quote from The Oxford Hills Owner, Steve Bohner, captures the spirit of this collaboration: “It isn’t just about a golf course, but rather creating a destination for Oxford County residents and beyond.” Another, from Eric and Jennifer Boyar, elaborates on the value they bring to The Oxford Hills: “We are very excited to be a part of this project and to be able to work with a great team. We look forward to continuing to serve our loyal customers at sixthirtynine while also creating a second unique dining experience in Oxford County.”
