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) and we will be playing two of the historic courses in Toronto.

The traditional home course of Toronto Island will still be the primary locale for the event and sharing the spotlight on the Labour Day weekend will be the Island's sister course at Centennial Park in Etobicoke. Both courses were created in 1980 and while the Island course has grown and evolved several times over the past 37 years, just last year the course at Centennial Park received its much needed redesign and in 2017 it has become a challenge and disc golf jewel befitting the Canadian National Championships.

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, $5,000 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 between rounds on Saturday and Sunday with a BBQ planned for Monday on the Island.

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!

Tournament Details

  • There will be two player pools,

  • Pool A will be for all of the Pro divisions (78 players)

  • Pool B will be for all of the Amateur divisions (72 players)

  • Pool A will play two rounds shot gun start on Saturday and Sunday
    with a fifth and final tee time round on Monday.

  • Pool B will play two rounds shot gun start on Saturday and Sunday
    for a total of 4 rounds for the championship. This schedule will
    allow the Amateur players to finish by Sunday evening so that they
    may watch the final round on Monday for the Pro championship.
    Another aspect of having only Pros compete on Monday is that
    this will allow for a slightly earlier finish on holiday Monday.

  • All players (Pro and AM) are invited to the free Monday BBQ
    and the Pro awards ceremony. The Amateur players awards ceremony
    will be held after the fourth and final Am round on Sunday evening.

  • A Host Hotel is being sourced at this time.
