On The Links and Lakes

Golfers and anglers the world over flock to Parksville for a mild climate that leaves most golf courses open year-round, and sparkling lakes whose waters hold salmon, red snapper, ling cod, halibut and crab.

Several scenic golf courses surround Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort, all within a 30-minute drive. Arrowsmith Golf and Country Club boasts a challenging 18-hole, par 61, as well as a driving range, practice bunker, two practice greens and a clubhouse where you can sip post-game cocktails.

Eagle Crest’s 18-hole course offers a picturesque backdrop of the Strait of Georgia and the Coast Mountain’s ice-capped peaks. Designed to be a “thinking course” as it requires strategic planning to maneuver, Fairwinds was named a PGA Facility of the Year. And Qualicum Beach Memorial Golf Course is one of BC’s oldest: narrow and tree-lined, the nine-hole course is challenging at a par 69. Try these, or another, and prepare to be dazzled by Vancouver Island’s incredible golf.
