Vancouver Golf Courses
Super, Natural Golf Vancouver… The Lower Mainland golf courses are not to be missed!
Vancouver was recently named the “World’s Most Liveable City” – for the fifth time.
Even for the well-seasoned traveller, Vancouver has the power to astonish: the city is one of those rare places where you can golf, sail and ski – all in one day. Add to this a mild climate, where greens are green year-round, and it’s no surprise that Vancouver golf courses are some of the top in North America.
While most people think of Vancouver as a big city with its nightlife and shopping, it also has an excellent range of golf courses, many within a short distance of downtown. This means that your business trip, conference or getaway weekend can easily accommodate a round of golf, or you can book your own custom Vancouver Golf Package. As a bonus, most Vancouver golf courses are open year round.
As viewers of the 2010 Olympics can attest, the fabulous mountain and ocean backdrop just sets the stage for its vibrant, safe downtown. Fine dining, a range of sophisticated hotels and theaters all serve as incentives for the visitor. All of the top hotel brands are available in Vancouver, from 5 star luxury to mid-priced brands. The new Vancouver Trade and Convention Center, built for the 2010 Olympics, is an inspiring place to hold meetings and conventions.
Finally, don’t miss the BC Golf Museum. This little curiosity at the edge of the University Golf Club is dedicated to preserving and promoting golf history in BC. Housed in a 1930s colonial bungalow and former course clubhouse, the museum’s collections of historic photos, trophies, antique clubs, and other golfing memorabilia are arranged like a golf course in 18 themed sections

University Golf Club (opened in 1929) provides a traditional west coast golf experience just minutes from downtown Vancouver and has proved a mainstay amongst Lower Mainland golf courses. The majestic towering old growth trees and long narrow fairways create a mature landscape which is both challenging and forgiving. It’s no wonder the University Golf Club is voted best Vancouver Public Golf Course time and time again. It’s only minutes from the city but you feel away from it all.
Morgan Creek Golf Course

Surrey's Morgan Creek Golf Course, a favourite amongst the Lower Mainland golf courses, is a Thomas McBroom design, playing to 6,968 yards over gently rolling terrain. Players are constantly reminded of the breathtaking views of Mount Baker and the Golden Ears mountain range throughout their round. Recognized as one of Vancouver’s top golf facilities, this is the place for golfers who want to hit the links year-round, whether on their own or with a group.
Mayfair Lakes Golf & CC
Par: 71 Yardage: 6641

Not far from the Vancouver International Airport lies another favourite amongst Lower Mainland golf courses: Mayfair Lakes Golf & CC. Offering 6,641 yards of parkland interspersed with ponds and streams, Mayfair Lakes was designed by Canadian Les Furber and as its name implies, the abundance of lakes and waterways that come into play on 13 of the 18 holes, adds as much challenge as aesthetic appeal to the course.
