Two words seem to come up whenever the subject is Toronto: cosmopolitan, and livable. Orson Wells once described Toronto as "New York run by the Swiss." It's a perfect description of the city's sophistication, vibrancy, and clean, well-order environment. In short, Toronto is one of the world's most exciting cities-with the welcome bonus of good manners.

For golfers, though, "livability" means a choice of challenging, world class courses nearby-and Toronto does not disappoint. The 200 courses within an hour's drive of downtown make a good showing on Canada's list or top 50, including signature courses designed by some of the world's top golf architects.

Glen AbbeyGlen Abbey

Its rating by Score magazine as Canada's best public course comes as no news to the golf community, where Glen Abbey is widely known as "the shrine of Canadian golf". Canada's most famous course is open to anyone wishing to challenge Jack Nicklaus' first solo design. Opened in 1976, Glen Abbey is held in high esteem by Tour players for its difficulty - 7.112 yards, Slope 140 from the Black tees.

Royal WoodbineRoyal Woodbine

No challenge was overlooked in this brilliant Michael Hurdzan design. The 76 bunkers and water on every hole will keep your full attention on the game. The rewards are great and Royal Woodbine's beautifully conditioned fairways and greens make this championship course a real pleasure to play. Just minutes from downtown Toronto on the Mimico Creek Valley, this is one of the area's treasures.
