• What Golf Courses Are Open On The Vancouver Island Golf Trail

    With the recent opening, and re-opening, of golf courses throughout British Columbia and health officials acknowledgement that golf courses are a safe form of physically distant exercise, a number of golf courses on Vancouver Island have chosen to re-open during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Golf Vancouver Island’s mandate is to support our golf course, accommodation, and activity partners – As long as it is prudent to do so, we will help provide information about safe access to golf courses on Vancouver Island. Our first concern is for the safety of the community members of Vancouver Island, so our hope is that by providing resources about COVID-19 SAFETY Protocols and information for local golfers about which courses are open or closed we can encourage enjoyment of our fantastic facilities while also helping ensure the safety of all players, staff and Islanders.

    Please note that whether a golf course is open or closed is a matter determined by each individual golf course operator and their ability to meet or exceed any recommendations/requirements in consultation with their local health authority.

    Please check back to this page often as it will be updated when new information is available. Please visit the website link for each golf course for the most accurate information about the status of that specific golf course.

    Remember, now is not the time to travel for golf, but when it is, we will once again welcome visitors with open arms and beautiful golf courses to play. Until then we ask that you stay home and help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

    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.

    Scott McCarron, PGA TOUR Champion

    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.

    Terrific trip: well presented website, knowledgeable staff, and the golf and accommodation were second to none.
