Rough round

The course conditions and weather were as expected but the pace of play was awful for a weekday. We waited on every hole for the group in front of us and there was nobody in front of them after the second hole. They never considered letting our threesome through and there were no course attendants anywhere all day. I finally had to phone the pro shop after one of them hit our tee shot back at us on the 15th hole (wasn't close to them). A course employee came out and explained the process of letting us play through on the 16th hole. We thought we were clear of them but on the 18th hole they shot a ball in our direction from the 17th tee - which was 90 degrees from their green. A roaming course attendant might have prevented trouble but some people shouldn't be allowed out on a course.

decent value

probably unfair to rate as played shortly after aeration, but greens were running at about 4. putting a waste of time. However the layout was good. Scenic, lots of trees, many interesting doglegs, but several holes kinda straight and dull on front nine. Requires strategy rather than length. Will probably play it again at different time.

Great course

I really enjoyed my round at Alberni Golf Course. It is an older style course with lots of character. it has a great layout. Not the easiest course with lots of large trees, some sand, and water. I would definitely recommend checking this course out if you haven't yet.

WONDERFUL COURSE

As always, Alberni Golf Course is in excellent condition. We played in the early afternoon, so the pace of play was fast. I have always enjoyed the views provided by this location. Although it is a 110 km drive for me, I will be back. A must play course on Vancouver Island.

Jewel in the Rough

AV Country Club Golf Course has everything a golfer must appreciate - challenge, natural beauty, excellent conditions and value. Probably the best Van. Isle has to offer but don’t tell anyone - please!

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!

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.
