Vancouver: Golf Activity Holiday
A multicultural metropolis with snowcapped crags, city-hugging beaches and waterfront forests
If you thought Scotland was a mecca for golf, then think again. Canadians are golf-crazy, with more golfers in Canada per capita than in any other country in the world. This means that there are lots of excellent golf courses available to those seeking a great golfing holiday in Vancouver.
Vancouver and the North Shore boast six public courses to tempt the golfing visitor. They’re all good, but the standout courses in terms of challenge, design and conditioning, are Fraserview in Vancouver, Northlands in North Vancouver and Riverway, in Burnaby, located just east of Vancouver.
If you’re coming to Vancouver for a golfing holiday in the summer, you would be wide to book your tee time as far in advance as possible, as golf is incredibly popular in the summer months. If advance booking isn’t possible, try calling the A-1 Last Minute Golf Hotline (800-684-6344 or 604-878-1833) who might be able to help you out.
From Vancouver it’s also possible to spread your golfing net wide to Whistler, where the Golf Resort of Whistler is located. With its three championship courses it makes a great package when combined with golfing in Vancouver.
