Dan-Alberni Golf Course

Have been playing at Alberni Golf Course for 40 years
on an occasional basis apart from the first when twice
per week was the norm.
Now retired and a member hope to enjoy lots of golf.

Alberni Golf Course is a nice, fairly long course nicely
situated with views of mountains and trees. Course drains well and that assists with distance in the summer.

Alberni

Great course and I love the surroundings. Just don’t like the price for a power cart. Feels discriminatory against those of us with mobility issues. That will be a deal breaker for playing this course again.

What a beautiful course.

Great layout and a lot of fun to play. Challenging for experienced golfers but not so much that beginners can’t play it too. The scenery is fabulous and the course was in great condition. Next time I’m in town I’ll bring my clubs to play again. Absolutely love it.

Alberni golf club

Good course! Some fairway sections dead and dry already so not sure how they will be when it hits 38 degrees for 2 weeks! Green conditions were great! Fellow players often said bunkers had minimal sand in them so was like playing off concrete. Did not eat/drink there after golf this time but did so last year and food was good!

Hot weather

Best coarse for the money on the island.

This coarse rewards straight tee shots and punishes wayward ones. Greens are in the best shape they have ever been and fairways are mowed tight and well watered and green even with the hot weather. Sand traps could use some sand.

The staff was very rude

After 9 holes wanted to grab some food. They informed as then that the kitchen closed at 4:00... this was at 4:10. Then talked to us like idiots, as we were suppose to know this and did nothing to even offer any attempt at solution for a substitution. We will not be returning.

make sure you are straight off the tee. Every green breaks, even when it looks straight.

Need a Haz-Mat Suit to Play

This is a course I’ve played one or twice in the past year, and I would certainly have recommended it up until this last round (or half round). I would have appreciated knowing about the recent application of weed treatment chemicles prior to traveling out from Parksville to play. I came across the warning sign at the 10th hole. No one in the pro shop bothered to inform me prior to play. I think this is inexcusable. To only be offered a 9 hole complimentary pass to return another day was a poor business call. This was due to booking through Golf Now - why were penalized? The round wasn’t cheap, but the staff said if we had booked through the pro shop they would have refunded us 18 holes. Anyhow, that’s my most recent experience.

Long time

It had been at least 10 years since I played Alberni GC - we had trouble remembering how to find it The pro shop was friendly and set us up with a local member as a threesome. The course and weather were good - not so much with the scoring We had a quick bite afterwards - good homemade food. I would recommend this course to anyone.
