Make Time for Golf in the Central Counties

This article is an oldie but a goodie!

Posted: October 21, 2013

Our blog is chock full of great ideas for fun things to see and do in York Durham and Headwaters. We are always adding new content and updating old posts, but sometimes you might stumble upon something from our vault. If this article has inspired you to hit the road, be sure to double-check that the featured stops in this post are still welcoming visitors.

If you find yourself out and about in the Central Counties this fall and you are looking to try to squeeze in a few holes of golf before dark or are searching for an unique Saturday afternoon nine and dine experience there is a great collection of 9 hole, executive and par 3 courses spread out across the region from which to choose. Just because these are not 18-hole championship layouts does not mean that a great golfing experience can’t be had.

35 Fall Golf Courses

In the collection of 35 courses listed below you will find some really unique experiences, such as courses that are designed by the likes of legendary Canadian golf course architect Stanley Thompson (Orchard Beach) or award winning Doug Carrick (Calerin). If you have a fondness for the grape, head on over to Bowmanville for nine holes at Cider House Golf Course followed by some on site après golf wine tasting at the Archibald Orchards & Estate Winery. Hy-Hope Farm in Ashburn offers an 18-hole executive golf course along with a store and bakery where you can pick up a homemade pie for your post round enjoyment. Some have two distinct sets of tees, such as Erin Heights, so if you feel the need to loop around again you can experience a whole different course. The worlds largest golf bag can be viewed at Lynbrook’s par 3 executive course in Orangeville.
Although fading light is the golfers enemy this time of year it would be well worth your time to try to fit in a couple of more unique golfing experiences before the 2013 season becomes a thing of the past.
