GOLF COURSES


Mountain Hole #19 Betting Hole

Mountain Course

Co-designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son Steve, the Mountain Course is set in the foothills of Mount Finlayson. It will test experienced players, while still offering plenty for novices. Rolling fairways wind through the region’s lush forests, with stunning views of mountains, ocean, and the city of Victoria. After many technical challenges and scenic splendors, the course comes almost full circle, with the 18th green finishing at the other end of the village.

Our world-class practice facility consists of real grass tees, PGA of Canada instruction, a short game area, and a putting green. Day passes are available; please call for current pricing.

Seasonal rates range from 69 to 149 CAD depending on the day and time of booking. Preferred tee times and green fees are subject to availability. Available for men and women, brand-new Taylormade rentals cost 60 CAD per set. Two sleeves of Noodle golf balls are included.

The Mountain Course ratings are:

Golden: Men’s, 75.1/152
Grizzly: Men’s, 72.9/147
Black: Men’s, 71.0/133; Ladies’, 77.5/155
Spirit: Men’s, 68.4/129; Ladies’, 74.4/146
Cinnamon: Men’s, 64.8/118; Ladies’, 70.9/128

Valley Hole #3

Valley Course

The 18-hole, par-71 Valley Course measures 6,807 yards from the Golden Bear tees—around 400 yards shorter than its sibling, the Mountain Course. The valley course is largely considered the “friendlier” of the pair, with elevated tee boxes, generous fairway widths, fewer bunkers, and larger greens. Rolling through terrain at elevations between 300 and 500 feet above sea level, it is still an enjoyable challenge, with many scenic signature holes.

Seasonal rates vary depending on the day and time of booking. Preferred tee times and green fees are subject to availability. Available for men and women, 2013 Taylormade rentals cost 60 CAD per set. Two sleeves of Noodle golf balls are included.

The Valley Course ratings are:

Golden: Men’s, 72.9/135
Grizzly: Men’s, 70.8/130
Black: Men’s, 69.0/128; Ladies’, 74.8/134
Spirit: Men’s, 66.8/120; Ladies’, 72.0/128
Cinnamon: Men’s, 63.2/103; Ladies’, 66.7/112
