    Arbutus Ridge Golf Club is directly surrounded by nine wineries and offers some of the most stunning views on Vancouver Island.

    The front nine weaves alongside the seaside community of Cobble Hill and the back nine climbs a ridge to overlook the Satellite Channel.

    Arbutus Ridge golf course was rated One of the Top 10 Golf Courses in Canada for Value by Westjet Up! Magazine.

    The Golf Club’s Tourism Sustainability Award and Four Star Golf Digest Rating make it a must play on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail.

    Arbutus Ridge is a terrifically scenic 20 minute drive north from the outskirts of Victoria in the heart of the Cowichan wine region and a 40 minute drive south from Nanaimo.

    Your finale at Arbutus Ridge is punctuated by the knee-rattling 214-yard par 3 island green on the 17th hole.

    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.
