Tyandaga Golf Course is Evolving – Public Input Needed on Greenspace Use

Tyandaga Golf Course Greenspace Engagement


I can say with absolute certainty this Council and City staff will never sell Tyandaga Golf Course. We will never give up an inch of that greenspace. We have heard concerns from the community that this course is at-risk to development. Rest assured, we will never surrender this greenspace. We want to hear from our community about what you would want to see if there is any potential increase in the greenspace there and the overall future use of the golf course.

Burlington, Ont. — Sept. 15, 2023 — Burlington’s Tyandaga Golf Course is evolving. The City of Burlington is looking to engage with current and future golfers, residents and neighbours on Tyandaga as a possible 9-hole golf course plus other outdoor recreation opportunities. The City is looking for public input about potential outdoor recreational options for the remaining greenspace. It is important to note the overall size of the existing greenspace would not be reduced, it would not be developed and it will remain as a highly valued, public recreational greenspace for all to enjoy.

Everyone is invited to provide ideas and feedback on what the space could be used for. Options include a driving range, practice greens or other outdoor recreation or cultural space.

The course will stay as an 18-hole course for 2024. Any changes to the golf course will not happen until 2025 and will require Council approval.

“The information collected from the online survey, engagement sessions, along with past surveys and engagements, will form the basis for our recommendation to Council on the future model of the golf course. Recreational greenspace is an important feature for both the Tyandaga community and the city as a whole. Please share your thoughts on how this space could be best used.” — Emilie Cote, Director of Recreation, Community & Culture, City of Burlington

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.


A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful. Got an idea or comment you want to share privately? Please, get in touch:
