Chaotic but promising

Pros: - The "new course" at Centennial has a ton of promise and some lovely holes. Also has a long history, going right back to the 80's.

- Great location for anyone with a car who lives in the GTA - proximity to highway makes it easy (if you avoid rush hour).
Cons: - Incomplete course, currently missing baskets on a couple of holes, no pads, no signage, no map = very hard to navigate.

- Word is that the city has been agonizingly slow to finish what they started. I guess other sports get more love. :(

- During the summer, this particular area becomes infested with all kinds of picnickers and other happy ne'er do wells.

- High winds in this area of the park, so wear your diapers.
Other Thoughts: If/when this course gets completed, it will be a very good option for those of us who live in Toronto. Some long, technical holes combined with mildly sinister water hazards will make it a unique option. One to watch and eventually play.

I feel sorry for the local players (you can do a search for the EDGE disc golf club in Etobicoke). They remain ferociously loyal and dedicated to this course, even though it has been in shambles for many years. Blue skies ahead, gents!

Pros: - Lots of elevation changes and hilly holes
- Back 9 has concrete tee pads
- Hole 18 has you throwing off the top of a ski hill!

Cons: - Front 9 is poorly signed and no tee pads
- Original 27 and 21 hole courses are no longer playable due to changes within the park.
- Back 9 can get busy with park-goers and some holes are close to paths.
Other Thoughts: If you are interested in helping to revitalize this course please send me a PM!

Pros: A good mix of long and short holes as well as changes in elevation. Mostly open holes with a few amongst scattered trees. A couple water hazards including a large pond that comes into play especially on #12.
Cons: Not well maintained, tees on the first twelve holes are difficult to find and signs are missing, damaged, or vandalized. Centennial Park is very busy and I found myself waiting on people walking on paths that interfere with several holes.
Other Thoughts: Holes 13-18 no longer exist, and holes 19-27 now exist as if they are 13-21 for a total of 21 holes and not 27.

Pros: The course starts out in mostly open hilly areas. There are some scattered trees and bushes that often come into play around the pin, and some large hills that make for some tough uphills and a fun downhill shot. A pond comes into play for a little bit of a risk/reward decision on a couple holes. The final 9 holes play through a small valley area with more trees forcing some tighter lines. Another water hazard is in play on these holes as well.

There is decent distance variety, with some long bombs early in the course, and more technical shorter holes at the end. The valley holes make you shape some different lines with enough trees that you're punished for errant shots. The final 9 have tees and signs, so it's much easier to navigate.
Cons: The course feels neglected and forgotten. 6 of the original 18 holes are gone due to maintenance issues, and the other 12 are overgrown. They aren't marked, except with a couple old signposts and some ground level markers. Even with the course map it was difficult to find most of these tees, and we only found one set not the two that are supposedly there. The baskets on these 12 holes are old and in pretty poor shape.

The final 9 have better tees and signage, but the tees are asphalt and are slick with even a little water on them. This area of the course wasn't well mowed either, so there were lots of holes where you could lose your disc on a great shot in the middle of the fairway. A few of the signs were missing entirely. There are several places on these 9 holes where other park users walk and picnic, making for some potential safety issues.
Other Thoughts: This is a frustrating course, with poor maintenance and some major navigation issues. There is potential here for a pretty good course, especially if the 6 holes on the ski hill could be brought back. As it is now, beginners will hate this course. There's lots of length and lots of tall grass and prickly rough waiting to punish errant (or sometimes good) shots. More experienced players will find a few nice challenging holes, and it's always fun to have a shot where you want to empty your bag off the top of the hill. Even the locals told me they don't play the original holes much though, due to the poor shape they're in.
