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.

Day 1

Gather the gang for a weekend of sun, fun and relaxation at Hockley Valley Resort & Spa in Headwaters! Hit the links early, and take in gorgeous views of the Hockley Valley; the unrivalled natural beauty and challenging design will test your game on a course so memorable you’ll be booking your next tee-time before you can say “fore”.

Adamo Estate Winery Take in a light lunch at the Spa Café, and prepare for an afternoon of peace and pampering; be sure to ask about Hockley’s changing spa and golf packages when booking! Body scrubs, massages and facials are the perfect lead-in to a gourmet dinner at Cabin, or Wine and Unwind with live music and dreamy charcuterie boards at Adamo Estate Winery, accessible by shuttle from Hockley Valley Resort (and don’t forget to grab a bottle or two to take home). All dining is currently outdoor patio or take out.

Day 2

TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley is a true destination spot for golf in Ontario, offering three world-class 18-hole golf courses without the pretense of a private club. All three are public, pay-as-you-play courses. All three are ranked in both of ScoreGolf’s Top 100 courses in Canada and Canada’s Best 59 Public Golf Courses. The most challenging of the three courses is the Heathlands course, with traditional Scottish links and tight fairways.

The Alton Mill Arts Centre is also a must-visit while in the Village of Alton, as is the famed R3 Bakery & Bistro for a lunch or dinner to remember.

Prepare for family fun that will have everyone smiling ear to ear. Hone your putting skills (and your footwork) with a day at Lynbrook Family Golf Centre with a round of foot-golf (a cross between soccer and golf), a session at the driving range, or a run at the 18-hole mini golf course. A perfect setting to soak up summer, Lynbrook has 17 birdhouses and over 400 trees – keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife while you’re mastering your putting edge.

Family GolfingAfter working up an appetite, why not settle in at Hockley Valley’s Black Birch Restaurant, a local favourite specializing in seasonal, rustic cuisine in a gorgeous cabin setting across from Hockley Valley Nature Reserve. All dining is currently outdoor patio or take out.
