Some Nice Elements and Some Serious Cons

1    6/17/2017   6/17/2017
Review By: dcopland
Played: 2  Reviewed: 2
Pros: - Beautiful park area with willows and interesting wooded holes (7, 8).

- Well maintained.
Cons: - Tee pads are not big enough and suffer from elevation problems


- Not enough variety in shots. Most are open and in a field with a handful of guardian trees.

- I couldn't find the tee box for hole 10. I don't think there is one. The shot is also very close to an archery range and feels jammed into the park's geographic boundaries.

- E.T. Seton doesn't feel like a disc golf course. It's more like a multi-use public park than a true area dedicated to the sport.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this course if just for the bugs which are a shame. I was swarmed in minutes on an overcast day in mid-June. Without them, it would definitely be playable and quite fun.

I did find the course a bit bland with many of the holes playing similarly featuring open tee shots with baskets guarded by a handful of trees.

Hole seven is a real standout as it dips into a wooded section of the park and climbs a hill into a dirt area surrounded by tall pine trees. This particular hole feels like you're playing a totally different course and I would have loved to play it slower had it not been for the bug swarm that kept me constantly moving.

Overall, it has elements of a good disc golf course, but it's a shame that the bugs and its somewhat boring layout render it not that much fun to play.

Nice little course

Pros: - Good location for those of us in the city - easy to access off the DVP -> just park behind the Science Centre (Gateway blvd)

- Offers short, but fun "executive-style" 18 course that's well maintained and offers a little bit of variety & elevation

- Public park with proper tee pads, good baskets and lovely, new way-findings thoughtfully created by local players

- No fees! Just show up and throw - friendly locals - easy-going vibe, some surprisingly beautiful flora & fauna

Cons: - some iffy positions, specifically basket #10 along the archery range (which looks cool, but invites humiliation)

- some weird beetles killed off a bunch of the trees, which significantly altered this course and left it much easier to play

In the summer indifferent pick-nickers have a tendency to do events right on some of the holes - very frustrating!
Other Thoughts: - this course is ideal for beginners and most amateurs -> if a challenge is what you're after, try throwing the Island instead

- the course design tucks away baskets here and there, so it can be a little tricky to navigate (just download the course map first)

Not to shabby

Pros: Easy to Navigate.
Very green and open.
Concrete pads.
Trash Cans.
Nice creek running alongside the first 6 holes.
Not to many people playing.
Cons: Pain to find the park.
My phone that i used the DGCR app on had me park at dead end street behind a building up on the hill on the other side of the creek. It didn't matter how much i drove around the area, my gps insisted i park there and walk down the trail to hole one.

Some kids were burning paper at hole one in a barrel and it was blowing burning pieces all over the area.

A few people were on the fairway at hole 8, but they seemed to already know and watched while we drove.
Other Thoughts: This course will do in a pinch. Glad i played it.

Pros: I dont know what all the fuss is about. This is a fantastic little course. Beautiful setting, and some really fun holes. Sure theres some people, its a city park. But its not so much worse than the island.
A great mix of long and short holes, every hole thoughtful the layout is great. Tee pads and signage are excellent (except hole 10 which is a bit tricky next to the archery range, but man how cool is the archery range!!)
Cons: A couple of blind shots, but nothing a spotter can't deal with. I wont even mention people as an issue because everyone i met was aware and courteous.
Other Thoughts: Play it, its well worth it.

 Solid course

Pros: Very good course for beginners as there is a lot of space.
New signs and teeboxes are great. Really help with navigation.
Wooded holes are awesome!
Cons: The space mentioned above takes away from the overall feeling of the course. You are playing disc golf in a park rather than on a disc golf course.
Hole 10 is hard to find and doesn't have a tee box or sign.
Have to spend a lot of time asking people to move during peak hours.

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: - if you're 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.

  Thoughts on Seton Park

Pros: -very convenient location in mid-town Toronto
-I'm a beginner so I like that the course is on the shorter side
-very good condition, tee-pads and baskets in great shape and the park is maintained really well
-good overall design. Though short, there is some decent variety
Cons: -poor marking. It was my first time out and without a map and some help from some other players there was no way I could have navigated from hole-to-hole. Some holes have a logical flow, but for some others I had to run to the baskets to be sure. Would be great if at the very least there could be arrows pointing to the next tee around every basket (like on the Toronto Island). Perhaps this is on the way?
-length. Again being a beginner I was ok with this, but I could see this as being a bit of a negative for many
-bikers. I would agree with some other reviews that on a few holes there is a chance to nail someone after the release because of blind spots
-archery hole. I couldn't find the tee, and it's a little tight to ppl using weapons.
Other Thoughts: -this course is less than a 10-minute drive from my house so I will be there a lot. Still, as my game improves I could see the lack of length considering the relative openness being an issue
-I've seen a fe scorecards with distance, but no indication of par. Safe to assume par 3 throughout?

Pros: Nice, beginner friendly course with new concrete tee pads installed (? I think all but #9, #10 are installed unless I couldn't find them). Some elevation change, although only small... no epic downhills or uphills. Trees scattered through the fairways provide some challenge, though not too much. Public washroom and trash/recycle cans in the park. Mostly a very clean, well maintained park. Brand spankin new baskets.
Easily accessible via TTC, bicycle, or car, free parking available.
Cons: Somewhat difficult to navigate, I didn't bring a map... there is no signage as of yet. Some arrows to direct to the next hole, and/or markings on the teepads would help.
Pretty heavy bicycle traffic through the park (that's how I found the course in the first place) on a well used bicycle path connecting to the lower don recreation trail.
Other Thoughts: Pretty nice to have a course a little north of the city which seems beginner friendly and accessible. Please use the trash and recycle bins and clean up after yourself, I would hate to see litter becoming a problem here. Some good conduct and stewardship would place disc golf in a positive light and possibly lead to more courses in the area.
