I can't believe how rudely I was treated simply for trying to understand their nonsensical covid adjusted range policy. It was my first time playing a round there since they reopened to the public. I arrived at the pro shop to check in and asked if their range was open. He said yes. So I asked to buy a large bucket. I was told they don't sell large buckets because it requires a paper ticket with a range machine code and they are not handing out paper tickets because of Covid and that they are ONLY selling reloadable cards of ten buckets. So my follow up was, "so I guess we can't warm up?" And this is where things start to go off the rails. He told me he could sell me a warm up bucket. But warm up buckets only come on paper tickets which he just told me he couldn't sell me. A warm up bucket is exactly half the size of a regular bucket. So naturally I asked "if you're giving me a paper ticket why can't I just buy the large bucket since they are both issued on paper ticekts?"
"It's our covid policy"
"I don't get it."
"What's not to get?"
"So can I just buy two small buckets?"
"Not really, but if you go to the range and come back to buy a second one I won't say no."
Now this is just getting ridiculous. They won't sell me a large bucket cause they don't want to hand out paper tickets but they WILL hand out paper tickets for small buckets and I can even go and come back to get a SECOND ONE but I can't buy two at the same time. And just when I thought things couldn't get any worse.....
"Well that doesn't make any sense." I said. At this point the course manager intervened and right away she wasn't having any of it. Zero professionalism whatsoever. Doesn't try to calmly explain why this is the policy, or if I could just bear with them during this difficult time as we all try to figure things out, no just comes in HOT.
"Sir, it doesn't need to make sense to you that's our policy and you just need to accept it. Everywhere has different Covid rules and that's ours. If you don't like it you can leave and Ill call security and have you escorted off the course."
UHHHHH, WOW! Okay.
I reply "Excuse me but I am a paying customer and I am just trying to understand what it is I am being told.
"YOU DONT NEED TO UNDERSTAND! You have your range ticket, you're happy now just go!" And she turns her back on me.
I wanted to say no I'm not happy but I was with my friend who came from East Van and I didn't want us to get kicked off. So we just went to the range with our small bucket PAPER TICKET that they said they couldn't even give out but ONLY for large buckets. And by the way, they are so concerned about paper tickets for what reason I have no idea because I can literally touch any product in the pro shop, and I noticed they weren't sanitizing the range machine between customers. It makes NO SENSE, so I was just trying to understand and yes let them know it made no sense and they just had no interest in being professional about it.
I hate when a course I like to go to makes me not want to go there because of the way the staff handled that situation. Because if I understand correctly then we went from zero paper tickets being issued to I can purchase two. Just not for the size of bucket that I originally asked for which would have limited it to just one. If you don't believe me call them ask for yourself what buckets they sell.

Nice day out
We enjoy playing here. It isn't super anything but is fun to play, has a nice view of the river and isn't very crowded. The management seems to appreciate its customers and the round is reasonably priced.

Very well kept course
I really enjoy playing this moderate length 18 hole course. With many adjacent fairways and grass that is well kept not so long you generally find your wayward ball easy and playable. Terrific service in the pro shop and restaurant, its easy to like this place. My favorite go to course for affordable golf in Vancouver.
We're glad to hear it! Thanks for taking time to leave us a review, we always appreciate positive feedback.
Course has gotten better since I played it 6 years ago!
It was only 11bucks on Golfnow, I couldn’t resist a deal like that...I know this course is rundown but I took a chance anyways...I was happily surprised that it had gotten better and the greens were decent...had a great time today and shot 3 over....that was the best 11 bucks ever!!!
We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. We are glad we exceeded your expectations. Thanks for visiting Musqueam Golf & Learning Academy. We hope to see you again in the future.
I really don't like the bottom areas leading up to the elevated greens as they are all too wet. You can not 'play up' to these areas, the ball cannot roll or bounce onto the green. It just stops ...
We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. We are going to pass on your feedback to the teams in charge so they can work to make changes. Thanks for visiting Musqueam Golf & Learning Academy. We hope to see you again in the future.

Hello, Jon. Thank you for your 5-star rating! Please book another round with us soon at Musqueam Golf & Learning Academy!
You cannot survive here without bug spray. The mosquitoes will attack you all over. If they hadn't been so annoying, I would've probably shot better.
Golf wise, everyyrhing was good. The mosquitoes were unbelievably however, Musqueam did note it on the board. I had to buy bug spray just to survive the round.
Good value with GolfNow
