Golf

Heworth Golf Course

Although it is a relatively short course (6105 yards) it is a definite test for golfers of all abilities. The secret of a successful round is straight hitting and accepting one's punishment when in trouble. The four par three holes are rated as the toughest par threes in the York Union of Golf Clubs. The course's antiquity is reflected in the quality of the greens.

Fulford Golf Course

Regarded as one of the finest tests of inland golf, the course is frequently graded in the Top 100 and is built on predominantly sandy heathland, which drains exceptionally well and provides an excellent surface for all year round golf. The greens, which were voted ''best on the European Tour'', remain consistent throughout the year, and the course drains well during the winter.
