Father’s Day gifts can be difficult. Flowers, cards or a singing telegram may be a little over the top for old pop, but there’s one present that will combine the outdoors, quiet time, and sports all into one: golf.
The Greater Toronto Area is home to a plethora of eye-pleasing courses, so many in fact that plenty fly under the radar. Finding the right course for your budget may be difficult however, but many clubs offer great rates around Father’s Day.
Copper Creek is frequently ranked as one of the top public golf courses in Canada (#44 in 2013 by Canadian Golf Magazine). The course offers prices as low as $125 for a weekend afternoon, just 35 minutes outside of downtown Toronto in the picturesque town of Kleinburg, Ontario. The course also offers a “4½ Hour Guarantee” to
ensure a healthy pace of play. www.coppercreek.ca
Royal Woodbine Golf Club is located in west Toronto and a stone’s throw away from Pearson International Airport and Woodbine Racetrack. With an early bird and twilight special of $65 (for a limited time), it is an offer that is hard to turn down given its proximity to Woodbine Entertainment Group. www.royalwoodbine.com
Just beyond Toronto lies Lionhead Golf & Country Club, on Mississauga Road in Brampton. While offering a “kinder and gentler” layout in their Masters Course, Lionhead also provides the Legends Course. Generally considered one of the toughest courses in North America, this is for dads with a serious golf tick. Costing $155 for weekdays, weekends or holidays, the price is still a bargain given the club’s prestige. www.golflionhead.com
Whether a competitive rivalry between father and child, or a friendly outing followed by dinner and drinks, the options are open. Travel afar or keep it local on Father’s Day, because there are more than enough courses in the GTA to fit everyone’s needs.
