Club History

Nearly three thousand rounds played annually

Paragon Golf and Country Club was the brain child of Flight Lieutenant Kaye Huet, an Argus Pilot who in 1962 was stationed at Greenwood. At one time he had been the Junior Golf Champion of the Province of Quebec.
Huet was convinced that a golf course could be constructed in the Kingston area and operated commercially. His interest in such a venture was shared by Gordon Shaw, Pro at the recently opened Greenwood course, and Len Giffen, a Flying Officer. Both Huet and Shaw were very knowledgeable about the game and were familiar with those features which characterize a good course. Len Giffen was a born entrepreneur and what he lacked in experience was more than offset by his energy and enthusiasm. The three had assets invaluable in the construction of a course and worked very hard to raise funds and purchase the site.
In 1963, the course was opened with 7 holes in play. 10 holes were ready by the first complete year of operation (1964) and expansion to 18 holes was completed in 1970. Further improvements have been made with the addition of 3 new holes in the early nineties.
Adapted from Marguerite Glydon, The purpose of Paragon Golf and Country Club is to have a place for all people of all ages to have a safe place to enjoy socializing, community involvement and taking part in recreation. Paragon has had a positive influence in the lives of many over the years, promoting a safe and healthy activity where all people from the community can come together.
