Old Golf Photographs from the City of Toronto Archives

On my latest visit to the City of Toronto Archives, I found a ton of great images of people playing golf over the past 100+ years. From club houses to putting greens, these images show the clubs, the people, the outfits and the grounds of the sport’s past here in Toronto. Let us know what you notice in this curated collection of old golf photographs from the City of Toronto Archives.
