When the Toronto Golf Club decided in 2009 to return its Colt course to a more naturalized look, it did so in a manner that was aesthetically pleasing, was easier to maintain and would be more golfer-friendly.
A Tree Management Plan has been developed for Cutten Fields to provide clear and consistent guidelines for the planting, maintenance and management of trees on the property. The goal of the tree plan is to improve turf health and the vitality of existing trees while maintaining the visual appeal of the golf course.
The Guelph Turfgrass Institute is relocating to the University of Guelph Arboretum. The proposed location is adjacent to the 7 & 8th hole here at Cutten Fields. We can expect to see some development of the research plots as early as summer 2016 and building construction in 2017.
The Toronto Golf Club embarked on a major renovation project to the Colt course during the 2009 season. After six years of planning, town hall meetings, a membership vote, trials, extensive research, and a trip to England the renovation project got underway on July 2, 2009. There were many unique aspects to the renovation project, some considered a bit quirky.
The Toronto Golf Club celebrated the centennial of its Colt Course on August 25th this year. In preparation for the celebration, the Senior Management Group initiated a plan to incorporate a few details that would replicate the golf experience as it was in 1912.
