A good track for the money.

Staff were great and informative. The practice putting surface is nice. It seems small because of where it is but its pretty roomy.

The fairways were nice with some spots with little grass. I probably had 10 shots hitting off very sparse grass or out of a divot. A few wet spots but nothing too serious. Overall pretty good shape for May.

Sand was nice and good sized traps. The only complaint was on 2 of my 3 bunker shots I had to remove pretty large stones from my swing path prior to shooting. I play by the rules but in this case I removed the golf ball sized rocks before taking my shots!

The greens were nice,receptive and rolled true. The cups were cut well and I enjoyed the pin placements.

Course layout was where I found some pros and cons. #3 should have the tee blocks higher to be able to play over the gorge to the elevated green. This hole sets you up for failure. It's really demanding from the tee but there is more room than you can see. Certainly my least favorite hole. However, the rest of the course had a good variety with excellent views. along the way.

The course needs some work on proper signage and where to drive the carts and how to get to the next hole. I think I took 3 wrong turns and I wasn't even drinking.

We played on a Saturday at 10am and found it not too busy.. We had a non-golfer with us and ended up right on par for time by the end. I believe we were 13 minutes behind after the first 6 holes however, and the marshall ensured we knew that. I think he did a decent job of being polite and letting us know the course was busy and we needed to pick up the pace a bit.

The golf carts have a built-in GPS but we found the voice commands delayed and it would literally talk in our back swing.. The carts however have an excellent GPS and were comfortable.

Overall it was a good experience and we all enjoyed the round. I would recommend but don't expect perfection - expect a decent bang for your buck though.

Yikes.. What happened to this old gem?

Growing up in Coquitlam, there was 2 prestigious courses. The Vancouver Golf Club, and the Westwood Plateau Golf and Country Club. Last week I played the Westwood Plateau GCC, and was holding off to make a review until I heard back from the Golf Operations Manager.

The staff was friendly, however they never mentioned that there was still small white material which yes, protects the greens but also causes them to suck while putting.

Yes, it has rained in Vancouver. Being on the side of a mountain, I figured drainage would be decent as gravity is on your side here. Boy was I wrong...

As the pictures depict, the course was a swamp. Should not of been opened, and there was machinery on the course. Why they had tractors and cutters on the course was mind boggling..

I was expecting wet, but this was just silly.

The bunkers were not even raked, and I tee'd off at 1230...

I've heard about the new ownership at Westwood, but I didn't realize to the extent of how poorly they have drove the golf side of things into the ground.

With a great layout, there's so much potential here. It's such a shame its gone to waste.

I emailed the Golf Ops Manager, to explain my experience and showed pictures of the round... to which there was no apology. Instead a short email stating to directly email him for my next tee time.

Beautiful and Tough

First time round was a mid-afternoon tee time on a hot, sticky August day. Carts had GPS, the Starter at #1 tee was friendly and helpful and right off the bat, you can see you're in for a challenging round of golf with few flat lies!

Being the average golfer I am, I lost several balls through the round. There's definitely a premium on accuracy at Westwood Plateau LOL

The views are great, the design of the course is too - nothing but positive things to say about my round. I want a second try at this track though, so will be back in 2017.

Recommend this golf course for sure. :)

My first review is my home track

This is my first review so I though it only appropriate to write on my home track WWP. What to say this is likely one of the driest courses in the city we have been carts on fairways since April 1 when it opened for the season the added drainage makes it firm and fast most days. ITs a mountain course and target golf you wanna make sure you book an early am tee time is best chance for a round with some pace to it.

Do not even think of playing in the afternoons is a rule I live by

Good Experience

An enjoyable course. Beautiful views, course is well maintained, and the folks playing the course seem to respect it and take care of it. This means a lot to me as I travel and play various courses. Bunkers are in good shape, and green were great. Pace of play was good. No issues here and will be heading back to WP in the near future.
