Located north of Victoria on Vancouver Island, Cowichan offers an attractive temperate climate and is considered Canada’s only Maritime Mediterranean climate zone for mild year-round temperatures. The word Cowichan (Quw’utsun’) means ‘land warmed by the sun’ to the local Coast Salish First Nation and delivers excellent year-round golfing to visitors and locals alike.

Hate to rush when it comes to a golf vacation? Does a weekend golf getaway to Vancouver Island never feel like enough? Then we invite you to play the Vancouver Island Golf Trail, to delve deep with a 6-day golf vacation that lets you really explore the Island and play some of the top golf courses in British Columbia. Discover the benefits of “playing on island time” – that magical realm where you can rest, relax, see the sights, and rejuvenate.
Playing golf oceanside may come with its share of non-recognized hazards: ocean breezes and cool mists. But this pales into complete insignificance when you consider the pros of golf courses with ocean views (or near enough): those views obviously, seafood bonanzas, plenty of salty-aired adventure and all-season golf.
Cascade Golfer publisher Dick Stephens recently visited the Vancouver Island Golf Trail and in the June issue of Cascade Golfer, reveals his discovery of Vancouver Island and our no-so-distant paradise.
A person can get lost in all the wine and good times in the Cowichan Valley and one of the best seasons is coming up…Festival Season! The Cowichan Wine and Culinary Festival, September 7-15, 2013, celebrates everything that is great about the incredible wines, edible delicacies and seeing as there is some great golf in the area – why not make it a perfect trifecta holiday!
With over 38 planned events, and I’m sure many more unplanned, this is going to be one epic of a festival.
Those of us with golf in our veins have many things in common. We love the outdoors. We love the camaraderie that the game makes possible. And, perhaps more than anything, we love to dream. We dream about that syrupy-smooth technique that has long evaded us. We dream about a 350-yard drive (I’d say 300, but those days are over). And, perhaps our favourite, we dream about the ultimate golf adventure.
