Pros: Multiple basket positions.
Tee pads.
A variety of shots are needed off the tee.
Cons: There were multiple pin positions, but it wasn't clear which were in use, leading to confusion and more than a few blind shots. (This is the main reason for a poor review).

Not much variety as far as distance goes. Most holes were pretty short without many obstacles from the shorter of the two tees. (Although, to be fair, the longer tees did seem to be a good distance on most holes).
Other Thoughts: The locals were very helpful in directing us around the course.

There are only two tees on each hole, and if you are at all a serious disc golfer you should probably play the longer of the two.

Pros: Well marked, interesting and different holes. Two choices of tee pads. Terrain changes from creek valleys and overhanging trees to open plains with lots of wind. Elevations changes too. Narrow gaps from tees mean you must throw accurately. Locals friendly.
Cons: Cost $15 per car to get in. Easy to lose a disc.
Other Thoughts: What a great course. My home course is the Toronto Island and that will always be my favorite, but this might well be the better local course. What a great place.

Pros: Tests your ability to throw straight! Rough is really deep, so avoid it. Multiple tees and alternate basket locations keep the course interesting if played often. Pay to play means you can take your time.
Cons: Too tight for total beginners to have a good time - really hot in the sun as not much shade.
Other Thoughts: Bright colored discs are a must!

Pros: Excellent baskets.
Two tees and multiple basket positions for each hole.
All tees are patio-stoned.
Excellent winter course.
Good elevation changes.
Great mix of distance and accuracy required on each hole.
Great mix of required shots, with different routes to basket on several layouts.
Great layout and flow (there really is a front and back 9 with the parking lot in the middle, and you can play them in either order easily).
Maybe my favourite course. Super tough from the longs.
Every hole is good, there aren't any holes that are 'throw-aways'.
Easily navigated, and well signed.
A few ace runs, and plenty of birdie opportunities.
Cons: The entrance fee. It is per car, so just carpool. There is no max # per car, so pile in and park at the Tim Horton's on Burloak.
Protection from the wind is inconsistent, so putting can be tough, and requires you to play smart.
Other Thoughts: It looks a bit far from Toronto on a map, but it's all highway. The park is so close to the QEW/403, you can see it from the highway.

Pros: Lots of elevation and challenge. Great signage as well with little arrows indicating which position the pin is currently in so be sure to take a look at the sign. Very friendly locals as well.
Cons: The tee-pads are made from patio stones and as a result, some of the slabs weren't completely even with each other so it's possibly to get tripped up a little. Also, they are a bit on the short side.

$13 fee to enter park is a bit steep.
Other Thoughts: This course will have you throwing over valleys, down and up hills and through the woods. The only thing you don't have to worry about here is water. Hole #2 stands out as a signature hole in my mind. Playing from the long tees you will throw across a valley and through an opening in the trees to land on the other side.

I found my round at Bronte to be very enjoyable and would highly recommend playing here if you're in the area.

Pros: Lots of variety in elevation and righty/lefty holes. Most holes leave many options on routes to the pins. Very challenging in the long configuration.
Cons: Patio stone teepads are relatively short (approximately 6 feet) with a couple of shaky stones. Water fountains and restrooms not very close to the course.
Other Thoughts: Park entrance fee of $13 per car.
