Default Best Canadian Course

So I have my favourite, Hillcrest DGC but what are other people think. Canada is a big country after all. What do you think is the best course in the Great White North?

Next topic.

Not so fast. I've played Toronto Island, a close second. But I've also heard amazing things about some of the new courses around Vancouver that were played at Canadian Champs.

Personally I think Hillcrest DGC is a top 10 course worldwide however others are building big courses that need a mention.

This thread should be titled “Best Canadian Course, eh?”

Thanks: (3)

I've only played 21 Canadian courses in five provinces (BC, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI) but Hillcrest in easily the best course I've played in Canada. I don't think it would rate so high in the world rankings, only because it's not nearly as difficult/challenging as current top 10 courses.

It's in my personal top 10. However, that category is Favorite courses played by over 60 year rec players.

I haven't played Hillcrest but the Valkyrie kids review of it makes me want to definitely find a way to get out there sometime and is most likely the best in Canada. But Toronto Island gives you a whole different kind of experience. Having to take a ferry out to island and having the city as a backdrop is simply visually amazing. People have different opinions of the course, but for its locale and unique setting, it should be a course not to miss for anyone who may come within 100 miles to play it. i.e. if you're visiting Niagara Falls add a day for TI. Playing there will basically will eat up much of a day, but it's worth it. And with the exchange rate being what it is now, the American dollar goes much further than in years past.

Any news on the Calgary course? With $700,000 (I assume that is money for the whole park) it should be amazing. However is it true they have hired ball golf designers to create the course?

I fit that category, and I agree, Hillcrest is great fun in is my personal top 10 too. Plus lobsters at every local eatery also helps.

Toronto Island killed me with its low ceilings (my rollers are terrible), but getting to and from the course is definitely a big part of the fun. Haven't played Hillcrest yet, but I recommend Toronto Island to everyone looking to disc The Great White North.
