Things to Do In Langford
With three spectacular public golf courses within our borders, there is no shortage of world-class golf to be had in Langford. Olympic View Golf Club stretches across 12 acres of expansive grass tee decks and includes five target greens and three short game areas. This 18-hole, par 72 course is surrounded by natural beauty. From the 17th hole tee, aim toward a breathtaking 40-foot waterfall that frames the green 455 yards away. This signature hole plays through a steep, narrow valley past a huge rock column and an elegant Japanese garden. After your tee time, visit Olympic Views’ Table Nineteen Restaurant, Bar and Patio. Olympic View is the first to welcome the Table Nineteen brand outside of its flagship Whistler location.
In north Langford, you’ll find the Bear Mountain Golf & Tennis Resort offering Canada’s only 36 holes of Nicklaus Design golf. Choose between the rugged, challenging Mountain Course or the more serene Valley Course, or play all 36 holes in one go!
