TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley (Heathlands course)


4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley (Heathlands course) Est. 1992

Where2Golf says: 

TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley is home to three wonderfully contrasting 18-hole championship layouts: the links-style Heathlands course, the "Carolina-influenced" Hoot and the more parkland oriented North course. The Heathlands course is generally the highest ranked, and is kept good company by the also well-rated and pleasantly testing Hoot and North layouts. All three courses include their fair share of superbly stylish holes.

Known above its TPC Toronto sister courses as one of the truest tests of golf in Ontario, the open links-style Heathlands course harks back to golf’s beginnings on the dune-swept sandhills of Scotland's east coast ... all that's missing here is the cold North Sea! Carrick's authentic and excellently crafted design is rightly regarded as one of his finest. He employs all the features of a great links layout, with an array of feeder slopes, mischievous pot bunkers, backstops and fairways that wind through fescue-covered mounds. The well-spaced holes never crowd each other as they journey across the gently rolling but never dramatically undulating terrain.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: there are many, but look no further than the opening par-5 1st ... it gives you a great idea of what's to come. This belter of an open links-style hole is played through a valley of dunes and bunkers. It gets the round off to a flying links-style start, which is happily maintained throughout.

Did you know?

TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley (formerly known as the Osprey Valley Resorts) became Canada's first TPC facility in 2018. For all but its first year of its existence, Osprey Valley has been owned by brothers and real estate developers Roman and Jerry Humeniuk.

When the club opened in 1992, it had only one course, the links-style Heathlands. Less than a year later financial difficulties forced the original owner to sell to the Humeniuks, who operated the club as a family concern. In 2001 they added the Hoot and North (formerly Toot) courses.

The origins of the deal with the Tournament Players Club (TPC) was a by-product of Golf Canada’s search for courses in the Greater Toronto Area that would be willing and able to host future Canadian Open Championships.
