Tee it up like the RBC Canadian Open pros in Toronto
But if you don't have the connection, it doesn't shut you out of playing Canadian Open hosts or other top area courses. You can get a tee time through the Highlands Golf Trail at Glen Abbey Golf Club, the most frequent Canadian Open venue, having hosted the event 25 times since opening in 1976. A private club with some public-access partnerships like the Trail, Glen Abbey holds the distinction as Jack Nicklaus' first ever solo design.
One of the area's most unique plays is Wooden Sticks Golf Club, which features a blend of replica and looser 'inspired by' holes ranging from Augusta National to St. Andrews and Oakmont.
Or, if you want a tour-caliber challenge, try Lionshead Golf and Country Club's Legends course, which boasts a 77.5/155 slope/rating if you dare.
No golf trip to Canada is complete without playing a design by Stanley Thompson. Nicknamed the 'Toronto Terror,' Thompson was one of the great architects of the Golden Era. If you don't have the hookup for St. George's or one of Thompson's other designs at private clubs in the metro area, you can try Lakeview Golf Course in Missassauga, a former Canadian Open host that today maxes out at just 6,340 yards.
