8 OF THE BEST PUBLIC GOLF COURSES IN AND AROUND THE GTA

Being in real estate is enjoyable for many people because you're moving from place to place regularly. Whether it’s for showings, conferences or taking some clients out to lunch, it’s what most agents would agree, an exciting part of the job. With that being said, everyone has those days where they feel like they’ve been trapped in their office or too immersed in city life and need to clear their heads for a few hours. For a busy agent, golf has been a known stress relief activity and a fun sport to play co-workers or with family and friends.
