Pros: This is my home course where I started playing so I'll get that bias out there first. I'm super glad I learned here though because it's made most other courses I play at a breeze comparatively. I've been playing for four years now and have been to a bunch of other courses and I still don't think I've found one that's better (but definitely some others that I would rank as good in their own right)

PROS
- The island is beautiful. It's a really great course to walk through, gorgeous views of the Toronto skyline.
- The fairways are incredibly maintained for such a long course. They've even cut down the rough a bit in some areas.
- Really nice large cement teepads
- 2 teepads and 2 baskets on every hole.
- They just installed new clear signage as well, and they look great
- Really great challenging course - quite long with a lot of technical shots as well. There are a couple of open holes but most holes ask you to throw long and low with a good mix of hyzer annhyzer shots.
- 2 water holes.
Cons: - 7.50 for the ferry to get there (you can buy a pack of 10 tix though)
- Fire ants and stinging nettles, it's not the worst but they are there if you go into the rough
- No elevation - the island is super flat.
- Can be busy on the weekends/summer with tourists, (never really had to wait on the course for other golfers) but the course is located away from the main tourist area so it's generally fine.
Other Thoughts: Just another note, I know some people view it as a bit of a hassle to get there but I can go play a round in 3 hours from getting on the ferry to getting back to the city. Maybe still too long for some peeps but there it is!

Pros: Disc golf paradise on a sunny day. Long, challenging holes in beautifully maintained park on Ward's Island looking across the lake at the city of Toronto. Good course for power players, lots of placement shots required too. Power and accuracy is what it takes on the island.
Cons: No elevation changes, though a couple of the baskets are elevated.

Pros: An amazing getaway from the city, it's a 10 minute ferry ride away. Well manicured course with a mix of long and short holes. A "shot maker's course" as per Des Reading.
Cons: No elevation. Have to ferry it there (unless you live on the islands).
Other Thoughts: Course was re-designed in 2006, new teepads poured, signage on the way. Canadian Open NT event coming in July. Compared to some Michigan courses (eg. Toboggan) by Nate Doss.
