Over 100 years of mowing and tending greens and fairways has made the York Golf Club course one of the best, if not the best, in the area for golfers of all with your enquiry.

Created in 1904 by Open Champion JH Taylor, the original heath land character of this course on Strensall Common is still the special component. More recent developments are the excellent new pro shop, extensive practice facilities and clubhouse balcony overlooking the 1st tee and 18th green.

York City Football Club, North Yorkshire’s only full time professional club is located in Bootham Crescent – just a couple of minutes walk of the hotel. It is a professional football club at the heart of the community.

York City has suffered mixed fortunes in the conference after being relegated from the football league at the end of the 2003/04 season. The highlights so far being a play-off place in the 2006/07 season, losing to eventual winners Morecambe, as well as a semi-final appearance in the FA Trophy during the 2007/08 season losing to Torquay.

The club is very much a family orientated club and works hard at promoting sport, particularly football, in the local community. It has a dedicated team developing links with local schools and community groups.

An excellent way to see the city when staying at York hotels is on foot. This 3 mile walk, starts quite close to The Grange, in Marygate and takes you through the streets and alleys of the historic walled city.
