112. Islington

Islington Golf Club

  • Etobicoke, Ontario (13KM west from Toronto)
  • 53th in the province
  • Stanley Thompson, Ian Andrew
  • 1923
  • 100.0733 points

Islington sits in the golf-heavy West End neighbourhood of Etobicoke, often overlooked given its proximity to Weston, St. George’s, and Toronto Golf Club. Such a shame, as Islington not only has its own identity, but very strong merits to stand on.

The golf course itself is rather playful, effortlessly dancing around a beautiful property for golf highlighted by Mimico Creek (which dominates the back nine). As expected with a Thompson golf course, the one shot holes stand out, but some of Ian Andrew’s work, such as the green on the par 3, 6th and the wicked interpretation of the redan on the par 5, 5th, are intriguing.

As an added benefit, Islington features one of the best closing holes in the province, set against the Mimico Creek heading directly at the clubhouse with the Bloor Street skyline in the background.
