Goodbye winter, hello spring! If you didn’t already know, BC boasts some of the world’s best golfing from scenery to course design! We are sharing our top picks in the Fraser Valley, Kootenays, and on Vancouver Island.
Harrison Hot Springs
A stay at Harrison Beach Hotel allows for outdoor activities to be enjoyed year-round but, when we think spring, we tend to think golf! A short 5 minutes away is Harrison Resort Golf Course, allowing for a convenient 9-hole game or drive 10 minutes further to Harrison Mills and play the award-winning 18-hole Sandpiper Golf Course. This beautiful golf course is bound by its rugged and natural beauty with waterfront and forest views–truly one of a kind golfing and with great deals. Stop in at the Clubhouse Restaurant for après-golf bites where Chef prepares daily delights using only the freshest ingredients. Sip, savour, and #playthepiper the next time you’re in Harrison!

Located just 35 minutes from Victoria in Sooke lies a mix of short, medium, and championship golf courses. Head to Olympic View Golf Club, which is nestled deep inside a pristine forest, and you’ll be stunned by waterfalls, lakes, and wildlife. Fun Fact! Olympic View Golf Club is the very first golf course in BC that Tiger Woods played at during his amateur years. Or, you can head down to Bear Mountain and choose between the Mountain Course with views of the valley and a more rugged landscape, or the Valley Course with lakes, creeks, and nature. These courses accommodate players of all playing abilities, ensuring everyone has a good time. When staying at Sooke Harbour Resort & Marina or SookePoint you’ll be nice and close while being able to bask in glorious ocean views with all the comforts of home.
