The PGA Tour's TPC network of courses has officially expanded to Canada, with the 54-hole Osprey Valley facility being acquired in a move announced by the tour on Tuesday, and renamed TPC Toronto. After hosting a new Mackenzie Tour event in July, the facility will remain host to the PGA Tour Canada event as part of a long-term agreement.

Osprey Valley consists of three 18-hole courses designed by Doug Carrick—the Heathlands, Hoot and Toot courses. The Toot course will be renamed the North course. The Heathlands course opened in 1992, with the intention of becoming a bigger facility eventually. The Hoot and Toot courses opened in 2002. All three courses north of Toronto are open to the public.

The TPC network of courses has expanded to three continents since its origin in the 1980s, and TPC Toronto marks the 33rd course in the TPC portfolio.
