Stay and Play in Markham

York is home to a plethora of golf courses, both public and private, so if golf is game, come and explore!

This mini getaway will start at Angus Glen Golf Club, recognized as one Canada’s premier golf courses, with two challenging 18-hole championship golf courses – each of which has hosted a Canadian Open event, making Angus Glen the only club to have hosted a major PGA event on both of its courses! When your game is done, head to the clubhouse and sit back and relax on the patio, overlooking the 18th green. Then grab a bite to eat at The Silo Grill Restaurant, located right inside Angus Glen, and enjoy your meal on the patio or seated indoors.

Relax with a swim in the Infinity Pool, or with a signature drink at Draco, located on the main floor. Then freshen up for dinner – but you won’t need to go very far! A number of terrific restaurants are conveniently located within walking distance of the hotel – from steak at Ruth’s Chris, to French-inspired at Terre Rouge, to Italian at Costa Sorrento, just to name a few. If you want to venture a little further, jump in the car and make your way to Main Street Unionville, for their diverse selection of restaurants, plus live entertainment on the street every summer weekend.  After dinner, be sure to check out the Pride of Canada Carousel, a signature piece of Downtown Markham, featuring 44 sculpted Canadian characters that pay tribute to some of Canada’s most celebrated wonders and icons.

Head back to Unionville and take a leisurely stroll along Main Street stopping in at the unique shops and sites that line this historic street.  The Old Firehall Confectionery, located within a historic firehouse, and serving up old-fashioned handmade treats, from fudge to candy apples to sponge toffee and truffles, is definitely not to be missed.  Include a stop at the Varley Art Gallery or the Markham Museum before returning home.
