Flemingdon Park is a top reviewed, family-run 9-hole golf course near the Don Valley Parkway and Wynford Drive - very accessible! Dating back to the early 1960s, this well-groomed course has been called "an oasis in the heart of the city"! Flemingdon boasts very friendly, welcoming staff, both in the clubhouse and in the kitchen. Some golfers might pass by a 9-hole course in favour of 18, but online reviews rank Flemingdon Park very high in customer satisfaction as well as playability!
Drawing in golfers of all skill levels, the green isn't too challenging, so beginners shouldn't be intimidated. Most of the holes are par 4s and par 3s. Additionally, there's no marshal speeding around on a cart urging you to hurry your game - it's a very relaxed atmosphere, and the setting is quite picturesque for a city course. Perched on the edge of the Charles Sauriol Conservation Area and a proud partner of the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, don't be surprised if some wildlife - foxes, deer, hawks, or eagles - come to watch you putt!
Knocking out a few holes is lovely way for urbanites and downtown dwellers to spend a few hours getting back to nature! Even on those days when your game isn't so good, the opportunity to soak up some vitamin D with friends or family is beyond worth it! Plus, prices are fairly reasonable here, with 9 holes only setting you back $38.00 on a week day and $40.00 on a weekend (there are junior/senior discounts as well.) If you don't feel like doing much walking, make sure to have some spare change on hand to pay for a cart ($5). And if you're an amateur - without your own equipment - renting is easy: just $7 for clubs or $2 for a bag. There's also a Pro Shop, practice driving net, and a licensed snack bar, kitchen, lounge and outdoor patio!
