If you play a round at the Royal Woodbine Golf Club, don't be surprised if you flub a few strokes at first. There's something about the thundering sound of a jet engine and the view of a commercial airliner so close you could almost touch it that can throw off your game. But that's part of the excitement of playing on a course so close to the airport.
The real upside, though, is being able to tee off 10 minutes after you hop off the plane and check into your room. Hidden in Mimico Creek Valley in Toronto’s northwest corner, Royal Woodbine beckons with its attractive, well-manicured course. It also offers club rentals if you're traveling light.
