Toronto's municipal golf courses open for the 2011 season
  
Councillor Norm Kelly (Ward 40 Scarborough-Agincourt), Chair of the Parks and Environment Committee, teed off at Tam O'Shanter Golf Course this morning to kick off the golfing season at the City of Toronto's five municipal courses.

"This is a great day for Toronto's golfers," said Councillor Kelly. "Our golf courses are the perfect place for people of all ages to learn how to play the game or for seasoned golfers to face a challenge in a spectacular setting."

City golf courses are reasonably priced, conveniently located within city boundaries, and easily accessible by public transit/TTC. Each course has its own features that appeal to golfers at all levels of ability, with Canadian Professional Golfers' Association-certified instruction available. Discounts are offered at all times to juniors and seniors. Twilight and nine-hole rates are also available for all players during certain hours.
