“This is a house built on land bursting with stories of yesteryear in a village on the eastern shore of Owen Sound. The grey stone bungalow is nestled among the pines near the banks of the Telfer Creek in Leith, on the grounds of a golf course closed since the early 1970s.

Tim Clancy, a partner in the company with his parents, Tom and Theresa Clancy, shows off an album of old black-and-white photos showing the course in its heyday.
