Golf Courses in British Columbia

Olympic View Golf Club

Designed by Bill Robinson, 6,530 yards, Par 71, Rating 71.9, Slope 127

Every now and then you will come across a golf course that simply has to be played to be believed. Olympic View Golf Club in Victoria on Vancouver Island is one of those courses.

With two waterfalls, breathtaking views of the Olympic Mountains, a natural park-like setting, and twelve lakes to its credit, Olympic View is easily one of the prettiest courses you will ever play. Donít be fooled though; the courseís beauty belies a test of the game for golfers of all levels.

Its 6,530 yards take you around rock bluffs, past lakes and through lush coastal forests. No two holes are quite the same but each one is as memorable as the last.

Perhaps its most distinctive hole is its phenomenal finishing hole. With three dramatic changes in elevations this seemingly straight away shot becomes anything but a routine hole. Moderate hitters should play conservatively here but big hitters can gamble with the following strategy: Pull out the big stick on this par five and carry your ball over the rock outcropping at the top of the hill 240 yards out. If successful your ball will land on the down slope and roll to the perfect landing area almost 300 yards off the tee and 215 yards short of the green.

From there itís a controlled iron or fairway wood to the three tiered, elevated green in front of the clubhouse. Birdie is a great score here particularly if the pin is placed back but eagle is a legendary score. See if you can match what Tiger did when he played Olympic View in 94: Driver, 5 iron, chip-in for eagle.

Come find out why this track is a must play on Vancouver Island and a jewel in any Victoria golf vacation. Come golf Olympic View Golf Club with BC Golf Vacations.
