The City of Toronto announced that it will open its five golf courses for the 2022 season on Friday.
In a news release on Thursday, the city said its courses at Dentonia Park, Don Valley, Humber Valley, Scarlett Woods and Tam O’Shanter will open Friday morning and “will continue to operate daily through the fall.”
“Toronto’s golf courses are all affordable, high quality and accessible by TTC,” the statement said. “Each course has unique features and offers something for all skill levels.”
The city said a family discount is also available, which allows junior players to play golf for free when accompanied by a paying adult during weekend afternoon nine-hole hours.

“As daylight hours extend, tee times will also be adjusted to allow play from dawn to dusk,” the statement read. “Golfers are encouraged to book in advance through the City website or by calling the golf course directly.”
The city said tee times were selling out quickly and encouraged golfers to book ahead.
Depending on the city, FlingGolf will also be available at every location except Don Valley Golf Course, and the Bench Fit Fitness Circuit will be held at every course. More information can be found at the city website.
Toronto Mayor John Tory said the city has seen an “increase in demand for golf at our City of Toronto golf courses.”
“And we’re excited to be able to bring this activity to everyone on a daily basis, starting tomorrow and continuing through the fall,” he said in a statement. “There are golf courses located throughout the city that are affordable and accessible by public transit.”
