Reserve fund for golf course also recommended

It’s been recommended to city council in Burlington, Ont. that the municipal Tyandaga Golf Course remain an 18-hole layout after consideration had been given to shortening the track to nine holes.

Burlington’s senior manager of recreation services said after considering input from local residents and a review of key criteria, not only has it been recommended to retain the golf course at its current length, but to introduce a golf course reserve fund.

It’s been deemed the course needs a new irrigation system, perimeter netting and cart paths. The current irrigation system is more than 20 years old and is automated for only hole numbers seven and 16.

Council will review the recommendation for final approval at its meeting March 19.


A series of public meetings were conducted last year to get input from golfers and community members. Public feedback suggested there was no desire to shorten the course to nine or even 12 holes.
