Good course to learn on
Pros: - easy to get to with public transit
- not too many places to lose your disc
- holes are changed frequently
- nice mix of holes (2 in the woods, some left some right, a few up hill a few down hill
- only one hole that gets blocked by people mostly on weekends (#6)
- well maintained grass
-wash rooms and water fountains by the 6, 7 tee pads
- most people don't mind moving or you shooting over them as long as you give them a heads up
Cons: - No signs by tee pads ( should be in by 2014)
- Not all the tee pads are even with the ground (they are working on it)
- Can get a little hard to play o weekends (a few holes like 6 people like to step up bbqs
- Watch out for bikes if you are walking on the paved path. They are there weekdays and weekends
- lots of parking
Other Thoughts: - would rate it 3.5 or 4 after they fix tee pads and lack of signs
- if your driving it looks like you can get to the parking lot from Eglington ave on google maps but you can not. you have to get to it from Leslie st stay left at the triangle of death.

Eglinton Ave. East & Leslie
Pros: - Clean and Simple layout.
- Convenient Location in central Toronto: Getting to the Island is tough, requires parking, boat time both ways and $ to park and pay boat fare. Centennial is run down with missing baskets, poor/no signage and few launch markers. ET Seton Park finally gives mainland Toronto a good location to throw.
- Fairly Challenging: The use of shooting between and under treet canopies makes you stop and plan each shot.
- Dualies: there are 2 basket positions for each hole.
- Quality: Word is there are plans for dual launch spots, and for installation of concrete tee pads.
- The "into the woods" hole: loved the hole that shoots into the woods and 15 feet uphill. A nice challenging holeshot that can drop you a shot if you miss your drive.
- Bathrooms and water fountain: The real deal after you make the turn at 6 to come back. Not common and very nice to empty the tank and refill your water bottle.
- Wild in Toronto: The Don River, totally tree enclosed, alot of great birds and nature down the center of the city. Absolutely beautiful.
- The Baskets: I have never seen higher end Discraft baskets before - impressive.
Cons: - No signage: currently (July 4 2011) no signage whatsoever aside from small red discs at launch points. Baskets are numbered though. Until signed, you need a guide or a map if you can find one. There is no indication which way the next basket is launched from, and which basket to throw to, which is annoying until signs get put in.
- Limited geography: there is slight/some ups and downs and sparse tree-age. But Complements to the designer for maxing out each hole's use of trees to force you to show your skills throwing under, around and over tree/branches.
- The hole that is way out over the parking lot (14?) is odd. The pavement is OB and I can only describe it as unusual. Having said that, I enjoyed that I parred it. Points for the challenge. Minus for weirdness.
- The firing range: What if one of your discs crosses over the fence and hits an archer in the head? Will those dudes with bows and arrows snap and go postal? They freak me out. I mean I do not carry a shield when I play disc golf. I recommend taking a shield on this course or at least be prepared to run away if your disc goes over the archery field fence.
- Cyclists: very annoying. They'll kill you if they hit you.
Other Thoughts: - Keep your head on a friggin' swivel when near the bike path. There are fast flying road bicycles flying by that will put a dent in your head.
