i still love playing as long as i'm nowhere near toronto. when you consider the travel times from downtown and the packed courses (and huge fees) it takes nearly 7 hours to play a round, regardless of how good you are. lineups 2-3 groups deep at every hole just make the game miserable. i'd much rather not miss a full day with my kid. clublink has done a lot to ruin golf in the gta.
when i play in hamilton with my buddy and we are no more than 4.5 hours, from the time we leave his place until we are home again drinking beer.
