Type Semi-Private

Rating 75.5

With views of Cowichan Bay and surrounding mountains, this golf course lures golfers with its sedate rural charm. Here, fairways range from open to tight as they flow through orchards and tall stands of trees. Cowichan is the locals' secret that outsiders are thrilled to find out about in Duncan.

Hidden gem

I never knew of this course until it popped up on golf now. This has now become one of my favourite courses and come down from up island to play as much as I can. Staff is very friendly and I have a great experience each time.

Wonderful staff.

Although the greens had been punched a few days ago the groundscrew had done a fantastic job in making them playable. Always a pleasure to play this course ..Always given a nice welcome.

Cowichan Valley Treasure

This course has been around for a long time and is in great shape. It is well tended, the greens are perfect and the staff are stellar. You can’t go wrong with this course. Easily walkable and still a challenge.

Odd layout

Staff very friendly and the game moved along in 4 hours so that is vg. Greens were great! But a number of times three holes would be alongside each other so caution necessary. A few times where tee boxes were vulnerable to wild approach shots too, so a bit unnerving. Had trouble with yardage markers. No 150 bushes etc. Some holes had discs in middle of fairways for 100 and 150 yardages. One sprinkler head that I found had a yardage number. Couldn’t find the discs very often so that was frustrating.Fairways had longer grass than they should, but it is March... Pretty course with huge cedar lined fairways. Overall fun but could certainly address yardage marker issues.

Great Value, but....

Early in the season so some of the feedback may be based on this fact. Greens were in good shape. Fairways cut long. No benches at any of the tee boxes....never seen this at any course before? Clubhouse not open. Recommend to call ahead and check re. availability of amenities prior to booking.

Great Course

Cowichan Golf and Country Club is one of the hidden gems on Vancouver Island. Course was in great shape except for a few soppy areas - staff were friendly and accommodated a late arrival without fuss or issue. Other members were pleasant. I will be back
