La Cite Golf Club was originally a par 64 golf course known as Bon Air Public Golf. It was constructed in 1994 on 112 acres of land located in the heart of the city of Hawkesbury. Steven Ward, a golf architect from Golf Plan Associates of Toronto designed the course.

In April 1998, the golf course was bought by three local businessmen Kurt Hungerbuebler and Raymond Danis, two industrialists and Rejean Thoret, an insurance broker.

The new owners quickly added 8 tees to lengthen the course by 245 yards and proceeded to purchase adjacent land to extend the golf course to a par 70, which will be 6043 yards from the back tees, for a 69 rating with a slope of 124. Three of the nine par 3's were eliminated and substituted by par 5's, however the attractive front tees were kept intact, playing at 4612 yards for the beginner or senior golfers. Again the golf architect Steven Ward was hired to maintain the authentic character and design of the original golf course.

Three existing greens were bulldozed away to either unify existing holes or create new ones. 115,000 yards of dwarf blue grass and bent grass were laid down to cover the new holes.

Blaney Creek runs through this fully automated irrigated course. Fountains purify and keep the four lakes clear and algae free. The stone edged creek which runs through the 6th and 17th fairways again adds charm to the course. The impressive, newly constructed stone wall bordering the par 5 8th hole further enhances the character of this layout. One soon forgets he is enjoying the game of golf on a course located in the heart of a city. A luxurious and elegant clubhouse with a paved parking lot fully compliments this public golf course.
