In 2008 Golf Digest named a BC course the best new courses in Canada


Congratulations, British Columbia – the province was named the 2007

Best Golf Destination in North America by the International Association

of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO), and in 2008 Golf Digest named a

BC course the best new course in Canada.

Avid golfers return to the province year after year to take on

world-class courses and inhale some of BC’s finest surroundings.

In addition to superb greens, prepare for breathtaking ocean

and mountain vistas.

Expect lush rainforest settings or an oasis in the middle of the desert.

Immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture or gold rush history, soak in

natural hot springs and sample award-winning wines at some

of the province’s best resorts.

It’s no wonder that internationally-renowned architects like Arnold

Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Les Furber have left their mark

in this golfer’s paradise.


Golfing in BC’s Regions

The rolling terrain of the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast offers the tranquility

of vast open spaces and adventure while steaming natural hot springs

tucked on mountain sides with winding rivers are all part of golfing

in the Kootenay Rockies.

Enjoy late summer night tee-offs, bountiful wildlife and a never-ending

rugged landscape of Northern BC or, if desert terrain dotted with

award-winning wines, romantic vineyards and world-class, luxurious

spas is your preference, the Thompson Okanagan offers more than

50 places to play, including Tobiano, which in 2008 was named bes

t new course in Canada by both Golf Digest and SCOREGolf magazine.

The Vancouver, Coast and Mountains region is all about variety.

Golf the Coast Mountain resort of Whistler, along fertile valleys,

raging rivers, and magnificent oceanfront.

Shop Robson Street and take in Vancouver’s cosmopolitan scene.

And Vancouver Island’s numerous courses take nature head on.

Here, soaring eagles, black-tailed deer and spawning salmon shar

e the green – you may even spot a whale from the shore!

Even better, golf can be indulged year-round in the Vancouver area, on

Vancouver Island as well as in parts of the Thompson Okanagan,

thanks to a temperate Pacific Northwest climate.

No wonder that golfers of the world unite in BC.
