  • Ottawa

    As the capital city of one of the world's most livable countries, it should come as no surprise that Ottawa boasts first-class tourist destinations.

There is an interesting combination of drivable par 4s and scenic par 3s that will provide a formidable test for even the most skilled players.
  • Toronto

    An over-flowing metropolis that has embraced the influx of cultures that have poured into it since the post-Second World War years, Toronto could be the most multi-cultural burg in North America.
