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.

Spring golf is in full swing on Vancouver Island. And we have proof! Below you’ll find photos collected this past week, March 11-18th, 2018 from golf courses along the Vancouver Island Golf Trail. Yes – they are that green!!
You can’t beat the view at Crown Isle Golf Resort. The golf course looks pretty darn good too!
Can you say postcard? This glorious scene can be found at Arbutus Ridge Golf Club.
Stop. Take the golf tees out your shopping cart. Now back away. We’ve got 5 great golf gift ideas for you instead. Because your golf-loving partner/parent/best friend does not need to find yet another bag of novelty tees/sleeve of golf balls/branded glove in his or her stocking this Christmas. Instead, show them how much thought you (ahem – we) put into their gift this year and stick one of these fabulous golf gifts from the Vancouver Island Golf Trail under the tree.
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.
I’ve heard of the wineries in this part of the Island and – I’ll admit to looking it up – there are 9 of them within easy driving distance from this golf course, but I haven’t heard that much about the golf courses. That’s about to change with Arbutus Ridge, about 40 minutes drive up over the Malahat from downtown Victoria.
Who isn’t at this time of year? There’s something about going to an island that makes a holiday that much sweeter. Islands have a way of upping the leisurely power of a trip. Think Hawaii, the Cayman Islands, Bermuda… But, let’s face it, when a chunk of land is surrounded by water, you’re somewhat stuck. You are, whether you like it or not, staying put.
