Beach Fairway Golf Range
The Beach Fairway Golf Range is a driving and putting range and mini-golf course at Victoria Park and Danforth. Apparently, the City of Toronto is proposing that it close for two years so it can use the property to park city vehicles working on water pipes on Victoria Park Avenue and Gerrard Street. The Range is a tenant of the City and is essentially being evicted, at least temporarily. The Range is asking anyone who has used the facility to show your support by writing to your City Councillor to say so. If you’d like more information, you can e-mail me or Brian Jacobsen and Kim Holman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
