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.
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.
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.
