Drop-In Driving Range

Booking Driving Range

A spot on a golf mat may be booked online at recreation.utoronto.ca. Due to facility capacity restrictions in place as part of the university's COVID-19 safety measures you may not book specific mat to play on. Instead individuals will book a 45 minute spot on one of 9 mats. Only those that have registered will be allowed into the facility. 

Check-in Procedures

When you arrive at Varsity Pavilion please check in at the front desk. Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your golf booking is.
