Time for one or two more rounds of golf on Mississauga courses

Golfers looking to get in another few rounds before winter arrives still have time to book dates at Mississauga courses.
City of Mississauga officials said via social media that people still have the opportunity to book tee times at the two city-run facilities, BraeBen and Lakeview golf courses.
“Who else loves hitting the golf course this time of year?” city officials said on a recent social media post, reminding residents that while the golf season may soon be ending, the courses remain open.
At BraeBen Golf Course, located at 5700 Terry Fox Way, visitors can choose from two unique courses on which to play, officials say. The facility also offers a driving range and private golf instruction.
However, due to irrigation upgrades, “we will have two rotating holes out of play during this time, replaced with two from our Par-3 Academy Course,” officials say. “Seasonal green fees are in effect to accommodate for this disruption.”
Additionally, BraeBen’s “challenging 18-hole championship course offers stunning views from the highest viewpoints in the city,” Mississauga officials note.
Meanwhile, as one of the most mature and picturesque courses in the GTA, Lakeview Golf Course offers a somewhat different golf experience.
It’s located on Dixie Road, south of the QEW, and reopened to players late in 2022 after restoration work on Applewood Creek was completed.
The 126-year-old Lakeview had closed for reconstruction work late last year surrounding Applewood Creek, which runs through the property. It reopened complete with a new design for the cart path along with adjustments to the tees, greens and fairways because of the realignment to the creek.
Lakeview Golf Course has been at its current location since 1907. An Ontario Heritage Site that has hosted two Canadian Open tournaments, Lakeview traces its origin back to the High Park Golf Club, an 18-hole, 50-acre course created in 1896 in Toronto’s Swansea Township, immediately east of Mississauga.
The club then moved to its current location in 1907.
In 1912, the club was renamed Lakeview Golf Course, described over the years as one of Ontario’s finest courses and a southern Ontario hidden gem.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
