Welcome to the Tenth Annual Toronto Island Maple Leaf and the 2017 Canadian National Championships presented by Prodigy Disc.
Canada's perennial "A" tier event just got bigger and better.
Every year brings new changes to the TIML and 2017 is no different. This year the Toronto Island Maple Leaf is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a new twist. We are the Canadian National Disc Golf Championships for 2017 and as a result we are expanding our tournament to 150 competitors in honour of Canada's 150th birthday.
The traditional home course of Toronto Island will still be the sole locale for the event and players will enjoy tee time starts with one round of 18 holes each of the three days. We are honoured to have Prodigy Disc as our title sponsor for this prestigious event.
Holding the Canadian National Championship in conjunction with the TIML (Pro "A" Tier since 2011) gets you noticed. I am proud to announce that for the first time, the Toronto Island Maple Leaf is a USDGC qualifying tournament. This means that 5 players from the 2017 TIML will qualify to play the 2017 USDGC in Rock Hill, SC.
Following tradition, the 2017 TIML will be a trophy-only event for all Amateur divisions featuring a fabulous players pack and performance based awards for the top finishers in each AM division. For those ready to battle in the Pro ranks, $4,000 cash is added to the Pro divisions to bring the tournament purse to approximately of 150% of the Pro entry fees.
Lunches and soft drinks are included for players during rounds on Saturday and Monday with a BBQ planned for Sunday on the Island. There will be some side games and contests to play including a chance to win the TDs car, Hole in One contest. (Hole 9)
Finally, in addition to this year being the 10th TIML and the 150th birthday of Canada, 2017 also marks the 30th anniversary of the 1987 PDGA World Championships held at Toronto Island. This event was the only occasion that the World Championships were held outside the USA.
I'd say this confluence of anniversaries is most auspicious.
See you in September!
