• The Gift of Golf On Vancouver Island

    We may have to stay close to home these days, but that does not mean all dreams of future fun are out the door – or that we have to stop enjoying the hobbies we love. With summer, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day coming up, you may be wondering what to gift those special golfers in your life. Give them something to look forward to with a golf package or a gift certificate/gift card from Golf Vancouver Island’s participating golf courses and partners, and give the gift of future enjoyment.

    Support Local

    While the golf and tourism industries have adapted to the pandemic, meeting and exceeding safety protocols, this period of restricted travel and uncertainty is hard on everyone. Travel, in general, has declined as everyone wisely heeds the order to stay and support local, but ensuring that these businesses will be here after the storm passes for future enjoyment is important.

    Lucky to live on beautiful Vancouver Island and have one of these golf courses, or businesses in your backyard? Support local! For those who are not on Vancouver Island, but look forward to the day you can return, or visit for the first time, buying now with future travel in mind can certainly support these valuable businesses and get you set up for your visit in the future.

    At the very least, grab that golf-lover in your life a gift certificate or gift card. Use them for a round of golf or lessons at a local golf course or for many other useful items such as equipment, golf gear, food and more! 

    Golf Package Gift Ideas

    There are a variety of options when it comes to dream-worthy Golf Vancouver Island packages! With the Two Week Golf Trail Package, you receive nights in downtown Victoria; Parksville; and Crown Isle Resort. Not to mention rounds of golf at 13 remarkable courses including Arbutus Ridge, Bear Mountain (two courses), Campbell River, Cowichan, Crown Isle, Eaglecrest, Fairwinds, Highland Pacific, Morningstar, Olympic View, Quadra Island, and Storey Creek Golf Club.

    Or marry your love of golf with your inner sommelier with a wine and golf package in the Cowichan area.

    These are just a few of the great inclusive adventures at your fingertips. Visit our Vancouver Island golf packages page for a comprehensive list or discover choices at individual courses. Or save some money and find that perfect special!

    Vancouver Island Hotels

    There are many wonderful resorts and hotels on Vancouver Island, from the Bayside Oceanfront Resort to the iconic Hotel Grand Pacific in Victoria’s inner harbour, to the scenic Fairways Hotel on the mountain or Westin Bear Mountain at Bear Mountain Resort. 

    When the time is right, treat yourself or a friend to a night out in their home community, or when we’re able to travel safely, a stay or spa at a Vancouver Island hotel is just the treatment needed after a long homestay. Relax at spas like the #1 Spa in Canada – The Grotto Spa at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa and Resort or the newly opened Amatista Spa at The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa, Victoria.

    Gift Certificates

    Gift certificates through Golf Vancouver Island are available for a dollar amount, or you can prepay for a golf package. Email or call and speak to our team and we will help find the perfect stocking stuffer. Visit our Contact page for ways to reach us.

    Support your favourite golf course or hotel with gift cards or certificates for play or stay – contact directly to inquire. As mentioned, these could be used to purchase rounds of golf, food, equipment, and golf gear. Sure, you can find a golf shirt on Amazon but representing your favourite golf course on Vancouver Island helps keep these businesses sustainable, so they can continue to offer guests enjoyment on and off the golf course for years to come.

    On a final note, supporting some of Golf Vancouver Island’s amazing experience partners is another great way to give this season. Campbell River Whale Watching & Prince of Whales promise epic adventure and memories. Some craft beer from Vancouver Island Brewing is always a nice treat, or plan a wine tour for next summer with LA Limousines.

    With any trip planning in today’s climate, make sure to review our Know Before You Go post and check all relevant information sources before embarking.

    We can’t wait to see you on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail again soon!

    This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is my new favourite golf course – I just love the layout. It’s really one of the prettiest golf courses I’ve played in my life, I’ll come back here on vacation, it’s that good.

    I always treat golf courses as how many poor holes there are. This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is a very good one. There’s not one poor hole on this golf course.

    Colin Montgomerie, PGA TOUR Champion

    Great job on the initial booking and subsequent changes requested. Easy check-in at the golf courses and the hotel made the trip hassle-free. Nice touch with the driving directions and discounts at recommended food and beverage establishments. Will definitely recommend your service to friends and business associates.
