Itching to hit a golf ball, but don’t want to trek all the way out to the ‘burbs to get your golf on? Consider checking out the City-of-Toronto-owned Dentonia Park Golf Course at Victoria Park and Danforth Avenue. This par 3, 18-hole public golf course is easy to get to for those relying on the TTC, and provides challenges for the beginner and seasoned golfer. A course that is hilly in sections with four holes that cross the Taylor-Massey Creek, Dentonia Park Golf Course offers a variety of holes to prevent boredom and sharpen skills. Due to the short hole distances, no wood clubs are allowed. In fact, the starter will remove them from your bag so don’t even bring them. There is a standard clubhouse with refreshments, golf equipment, and golf shirts for sale, as well as a manned water cart that roams throughout the golf course selling water to parched players. While there is no driving range on site (Beach Fairways Driving Range is a two-minute drive south on Victoria Park), players can practice their short game on the putting green. Late afternoons during the week are not as busy so you may want to consider booking off work early. The best news is adults pay only $24 for 18 holes during the week and $27 from Friday noon to Sunday evening, and $15 for 9 holes during the week and $18 on weekends. Dentonia also offers reduced rates for seniors (65+) and juniors (18 and under).
