• Sunsets on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail

    Vancouver Island is a must-visit destination, especially when the weather gets warmer, and we start heading into the late spring and early summer. The island boasts a perfect balance of raw, natural coastal landscapes intertwined with beautiful cities and quaint community regions. As days grow longer, golfers are encouraged to book their tee times for later afternoons to witness the beauty of Vancouver Island’s golden hour and fiery sunsets. Here are some spots to catch the greens aglow along the Vancouver Island Golf Trail.

    Olympic View Golf Club

    Book the back nine at Olympic View Golf Club for twilight hour and bask in the glow of Olympic View’s mountainscape as the sun sets.

    Campbell River Golf Club – Velocity Lounge

    Get the gang together for delicious bites, cold beverages, and virtual golf fun at the Velocity Lounge in Campbell River. You and your friends can book a private party and swing away as you watch the sun go down.

    Victoria’s Inner Harbour and Lookouts

    Take a scenic stroll around the capital city’s inner harbour. You will find street vendors, artisans, performers, food trucks, patios, and more. There is always something to see and do in downtown Victoria, even as the sun goes down. Or, if you are looking to get a scenic view of the city, head to Mount Doug or Mount Tolmie, both with easy terrain that takes you to excellent lookout spots, perfect for witnessing the sun setting on the cityscape.

    Visit the Beaches

    Public beaches like Goose Spit in the Comox Valley are breathtaking during sunset. Perfect for an evening walk near the waterfront, you can take in the sounds of the ocean and a light offshore breeze making for a tranquil and calm wrap-up to your day.

    Sunset Wildlife Viewing

    Witness the local aquatic wildlife in their natural habitat with a magnificent whale-watching tour. The Prince of Whales, located in Victoria, BC, offers a remarkable 3-4 hour tour at sunset, making it a photographer’s favourite and a relaxing way to end the day as the sun sets over the Salish Sea. Campbell River Whale Watching and Adventure Tours also offers a number of wildlife tours during the day for visitors to enjoy.

    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.

    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.
