The Golf Courses in Rouge Fairways Community

Remington Parkview Golf Club in Rouge Fairways Community Markham

Established in 1950, Markham Green Golf Club was first known as the exclusive Box Grove Golf Club. Rouge Fairways’ northern boundary runs adjacent to the Box Grove Golf Club, which forms part of the Rouge River Valley. The owners sold the course to IBM in 1967. In 1992, the new owners redesigned the property and renamed it. The other golf club located to the south of the area is Remington Parkview Golf Course. This club has two courses to choose from, and one has a creek crossing. It is popular with Torontonians as it is a mere 30mins easy drive from downtown. 

Transport & Commuting

Rouge Fairways boasts good transportation links via York Region Transit (YRT) bus services. There are also railway tracks for freight trains, but no train stations for passenger services. The nearest station is Unionville GO, a 10min drive and 25mins for cyclists. The neighbourhood is mainly car-dependent as the local roads make commuting easy, although more residents are cycling lately!

      Adil Esmail

      Hey there! I'm Adil. I work in Markham with Century 21 Percy Fulton with home sellers and home buyers. With my experience of 29 years and over 1,100 properties sold, I have helped many clients find their dream home or sell their home for more than they expected. The best praise I've ever received from a client was: "Our experience with Adil has been fantastic. He is so diligent in what he does. There was always instant communication from him. We feel we made the right decision in hiring him. I would recommend him to anyone. In fact, we had friends who were looking and we recommended him to them - amazing.” I don’t think of selling homes as a job, I think of it as a responsibility. Whether you’re selling and need a specific amount of money out of the sale or you’re buying and you have specific needs, I will not rest until you’re happy. What drives me is the smile on my clients faces when they get what they want. If you're looking for a Realtor who you can trust with your most valuable asset, I'd love to work with you. I'm humbled to have been recognized as one of the top teams in Canada for Century 21 for 13 consecutive years. When I'm not helping people, I love spending time with my kids and I also love sports.
