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
