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.

Cowichan Golf Course is a very nice course located just south of Duncan. It's in very good shape and is moderately easy, although the greens are tricky. Staff is always super friendly. We had a great day out there.

Always a pleasure to play at Cowichan where the staff are friendly and welcoming. The greens had been punched but other than that the course was in good condition for the time of year. Carts were 90 degrees.

The course is still a few weeks away from good playing conditions. The course was very wet in a lot of areas. They had just mowed the grass, for what appeared to be the first time this year. The greens were in pretty good shape. Would not have paid any more than the Hot Deal rate for theses playing conditions. Tried to have a beer after the round but they would not serve us because they had an event scheduled for that evening.

Course was wet and soft in low lying areas but there had been a lot of rain lately. There were not a lot of players out which made for relaxed play. The course offered a variety of challenges in terrain and elevations. Will definitely be returning to this course. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

A great par 70 course with an eclectic layout. An especially apropos course for the mid handicap player.

The greens were soft and receptive when we played but in excellent shape. The clubhouse had good food and beverages at very reasonable prices.

Norm the pro is as welcoming an individual as you will find in these parts. Well worth the drive to play.

Highly recommended.
