Golf

The rolling hills and lush valleys of the Oak Ridges Moraine provide the perfect setting for more than 70 local private and public golf courses, making York Region a golfer’s heaven.

The area is home to some of Canada’s top-rated courses, including two Doug Carrick designed championship courses, Eagles Nest and Copper Creek in Vaughan; and Angus Glen in Markham, which hosted the Canadian Open in 2002 and 2007.

If a relaxing game is more your style, you can enjoy a round overlooking the shores of scenic Lake Simcoe at the Briars Golf Club or play Bathurst Glen Golf, whose commitment to protecting the environment, conserving natural resources and providing wildlife habitat earned Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary certification.

Whether you’re a scratch golfer or a duffer, you’ll find a course or two that calls to you in each of York Region’s nine municipalities. You’ll also find venues for charity tournaments, business meetings and weddings.

If you have an aspiring young golfer in your family, York Region offers some of the best golf academies in Ontario.
