Toronto's Lost Golf Courses, How the Game of Golf Shaped A City
Volume 1: 1869-1919Book - 2019
"This richly illustrated coffee-table book is the perfect gift for the Toronto golfer and history buff. It describes the nearly 30 golf courses established in the Toronto area from 1869 to 1919 that literally shaped the city ... Golf was introduced to Toronto in the 19th century by the Scots. In Toronto's Lost Golf Courses, the author tells, in fascinating detail, the story of the golf craze of that time ... Some of the golf courses, like Toronto Hunt, the Toronto Golf Club, and Lambton Golf and Country Club, are still thriving, but most of the courses were paved over by residential development. All that remains are the stories, pictures, and maps in places like High Park, University of Toronto, Yorkville, and Upper Canada College. These records tell a lot about the history of Toronto and the golfers who developed the city."
