Average Golf Course

The course was a component of a package we purchased for golf in BC. Price is an estimate. The warm up range requires you hit from plastic mats, the range balls were very hard and worn out. The course is average, there are many holes with blind shots to the landing area, some of the yardages were difficult to determine. At best I would give the maintenance of the course a B-. We played the course in about 4 hrs, never being more than a shot behind the group of four ladies in front of us. They were in position with the group in front of them as well. This did not prevent the group behind us from hitting into us or near us on multiple occasions. The marshal's response to my request to have the action terminated was "we do have members who like to play lightning fast rounds".

great course

The greens are always in great shape, fast and true. Tee boxes and fairways are also very well kept. Mix of shorter and long holes make scoring always a challenge. Front nine is easier so play well and try to hang on for the back nine. About half of the holes have at least a few houses lining the sides. Great views from a couple holes of Mount Baker and the ocean. Good value for the money.
