The birth of Dragon’s Fire GC is directly linked to Bryan’s entrepreneurial spirit and his passion for the game of golf. He picked up the game in the mid 1970s as a way of doing business and building those relationships. Since that time, the game has gripped his soul for both the good rounds and the ones he would sooner forget. For Bryan it has always been more than a game. It has been a personal challenge to improve from one day to the next. The other main reason for his love of the game is its natural beauty – time enjoyed walking fairways surrounded by trees, streams, wetlands, a summer breeze or the setting sun. It’s also one of the driving forces behind his decision to build Dragon’s Fire. A real estate developer by trade, Bryan first became involved in golf course development with the construction of Royal Ontario Golf Club. After having been the managing partner for four years, he sold his share in 2006. As an avid golfer, Bryan is a member of both Credit Valley G&CC and Mississaugua G&CC. With the completion of Dragon’s Fire, he has fulfilled his goal of building a ‘no compromise’ high end golf facility to cater to public golfers at all levels, at a reasonable price.

Simon Walsh - Superintendent
Simon was on his way to being an artist when he started working part-time on the grounds crew at Glen Abbey Golf Club near the family home in Oakville. He soon started working fulltime at The Abbey and completed his mechanics apprenticeship from 1988 to 1995. He also had the added benefit of working on the grounds crew for seven Canadian Open Championships. Simon moved to Chilliwack, BC where he worked for two years building and growing in The Falls GC. He opted to further his education by returning to Ontario to attend University of Guelph where he graduated with an Associate Diploma in Horticulture in 1998 and won the Western Ontario Superintendents Award. He gained valuable experience in renovation and construction projects at Mississauga’s Credit Valley G&CC in 1999 and 2000. Simon then moved over to be the Assistant Superintendent at Beverly G&CC near Hamilton, another course that went through significant renovations. He held that position until accepting the job at Dragon’s Fire GC in May 2007 where he oversaw golf course construction and the grow-in of the grass. Walsh is a member of both the Ontario Golf Superintendents Association and the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association. He immigrated to Canada from England as a youngster and lives at Dragon’s Fire with his wife Merina Allan.
