The Scarborough Bluffs are cliff faces that shape much of the shoreline of Lake Ontario, to the east of Toronto. These geological features have been formed over thousands of years, due to the winds and water currents of the lake, and today make for a stunning landscape. One can also enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding park areas from atop the bluffs. However, one must be careful to not approach the edge of the cliff face.
Located on the Highland Creek area and playing at just over 6000-yards (18000-feet) from the blue tees for a par of 71, Tam O'Shanter Golf Course is northeast Toronto's premier golf course. Although fairly wide open, with greens possessing only a marginal swell, the crosswinds will keep you guessing. The 412-yard par four fifth hole is bogey material if you do not hit it long and straight off the blocks. There's a licensed restaurant, washroom and change room facilities, a snack bar and pro shop with club rentals. So come along to play your favorite game or simply lounge around and relax.
