Dust off your clubs - two of the City’s golf courses open for the season
Two of the City of Toronto’s five golf courses opened for the season today - Dentonia Park Golf Course and Tam O’Shanter Golf Course. Operated by Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, the courses are reasonably priced, conveniently located within city boundaries and accessible by public transit. Each course has its own individual appeal and has something to offer everyone - youth golf memberships and camps, senior camps and family night.

“Our public golf courses offer access to top-notch recreation that’s affordable and accessible,” said Councillor Paula Fletcher, Chair of the Parks and Environment Committee. “I want to invite Torontonians to come and experience the variety of activities offered on our courses.”

Detailed information about Toronto’s municipal golf courses is available at or by calling the courses at the phone numbers listed below.

Dentonia Park Golf Course - opens today
This is the GTA’s finest par three course and a great course for a season warm-up round. Dentonia Park Golf Course is located at 781 Victoria Park Ave., less than a one-minute walk from the Victoria Park subway station. For more information or to book a tee-time, call 416-392-2558.

Tam O’Shanter Golf Course - opens today
Nestled alongside Highland Creek and offering a serene setting, Tam O’Shanter Golf Course is a moderately difficult course with water hazards that require extra attention. Tam O’Shanter has a licensed restaurant and is located at Birchmount Ave., north of Sheppard Ave. E. For more information or to book a tee-time, call 416-392-2488.

Don Valley Golf Course is scheduled to open on Monday, April 21, Humber Valley Golf Course on Wednesday, April 23, and Scarlett Woods Golf Course on Friday, April 25, weather permitting.

In 2007, 189,000 rounds of golf were played at the five courses. The municipal golf courses are part of Toronto’s watershed and provide protection for the city’s ravines.
