Throughout Vancouver and its surrounding cities, golf enthusiasts will find plenty of courses to suit their tastes, from wide-open seaside links courses to lushly wooded fairways. Choose from an array of public golf courses in Vancouver. Or for the ultimate retreat, get away to the following spectacular golf resorts, where world-class amenities meet breathtaking views and pristine courses.
Harrison Hot Springs Resort & SpaLess than two hours from Vancouver
Spend the weekend in Harrison Hot Springs, a lakeside retreat with sandy beaches, warm mineral springs and ample outdoor activities. At the southern shore of Harrison Lake, Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa offers an array of pools, restaurants, outdoor adventures and a nine-hole PGA-rated golf course. This 36-hectare course features sand bunkers, level stretches of grass, strategically placed trees and dramatic mountain views.
Fairmont Chateau WhistlerTwo hours from Vancouver
For a mountainous escape that comes packed with luxurious amenities, drive up to Whistler. (Even if you don’t have a car, there are plenty of ways to get to Whistler from Vancouver.) Located in the dense forests of Blackcomb Mountain, the Fairmont Chateau offers elegant accommodations, delectable Pacific Northwest cuisine, a lavishly appointed spa and health club, and, of course, an award winning 18-hole, par-72 golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Small creeks, ponds, sand bunkers and spectacular views of jutting mountains and towering Douglas fir trees punctuate the top-notch play. For golfers looking to polish their game, sign up for an instructional program at the on-site David Leadbetter Academy, which offers a range of instructional programs.
The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & SpaThree hours from Vancouver
Located on Vancouver Island, this extravagant resort at Bear Mountain is well worth the three-hour trip to Victoria. Golfers can choose between two Jack and Steve Nicklaus-designed courses — the challenging 18-hole Mountain Course and the lower-key 18-hole Valley Course. Improve your game at the Bear Mountain Golf Academy, and stock up on equipment and apparel at the upscale boutique. After a day hitting balls against a stunning backdrop, relax with a therapeutic massage at Sante Spa before retreating to your amenity-packed guest room.
