Mayfair is part of GolfBC group which has several course. Two of which include Nick North in Whistler and Furry Creek. What's disappointing about this course is the feel doesn't come close to the others.
They have a nice practice facility, club house and pro shop which is impressive.
After that, I was very frustrated with the pace of play on this course.
I passed through one group only to have another just as slow. Then skipped a hole and then joined with a guy who didn't speak english for the rest of my round.
The members at the course were oblivious to courtesy and basic golf etiquette. Multiple groups had many opportunities to let me through, as I was playing as a single.
It was crazy, one group actually had a 5 year old hitting balls to the green while I sat back and watched for 10 mins, then watched mom take out a club, then rangefinder, then switch club, then stand over ball for a while...and you guessed it, topped the ball as it went 15 yards! I passed this group and went to the next hole and as I drove by they looked at me like I was crazy.
I do not have any patience for this type of atmosphere. Weather you speak english or not, good or bad golfer, above all you should have awareness on the course and etiquette.
I will not be returning to this GolfBC course.
Cost seemed high comparatively and with my experience the value was not very good. It's too bad because we are seeing more and more of this behaviour on various BC golf course especially those around Vancouver.
