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.

Exceptional Value

Thanks to Golf Now and a Hot Deal rate, the extra distance to get there made it worth while. Very interesting and challenging lay-out, good conditions and easily walkable. Need your A game for the greens though, fast and very tough to read.

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.

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.
