Burlington to seek public input for potential size reduction of Tyandaga Golf Course
Reduction to nine holes would free up space for other public use

Burlington, Ont”s public Tyandaga Golf Course could one day be reduced to half its current size as the city ponders freeing up space to accommodate other public usage.
The city will be seeking public input about the possibility of shrinking the current 18-hole course to nine holes.
The municipality also cites changing trends in golf as a reason for a potential change.
A complete redesign of the course – making it smaller and placing it more in the centre of the existing property – is another possibility. Such a proposal would address stray balls from entering neighbouring homes. The creation of year-round recreational trails is another possibility for the added space created.
Tyandaga is used during the winter months for toboganning and snowshoeing.
