Not really that good... More

Thank you for the feedback! We regret that you did not see the groupon details prior to arriving. We tried hard to make sure this was clear when guests purchased them but will endeavour to do an even better job next time. Fortunately we aren't in a position where offering an aggressive groupon offer is needed, hence the restrictions. Thank... More

We have been here twice. Really enjoy the grounds and the views. The food is good too. Nice quiet dining room. There is an interesting garden patio behind the club house where it looks like they have BBQ events. Really unusual trees and shrubs. Handy to the Damali Lavender farm, B&B, and winery across the intersection.

Drive up the little hill to see the unique building at the top, walk in and enjoy the glass views in all directions. Grass, water pond, the green on the long 18th hole plus look on to the fields, the ocean, see the southern end of Saltspring Island and also mountains on the main land of BC in the distance.... More

I used to play here a fair bit. It's not a great course but it's a 'good' course. There are no 'stupid' holes on it. You can't play 9 holes here - the 9th hole ends about 8 miles from the clubhouse so if you didn't take a power cart you can forget it. I don't think they even let... More

This course starts off a little lame with power lines and houses through the course but then after that there are some good holes. It is a bit of a drive from Victoria but reasonably priced and walkable. Good service, pro shop and the deck and food are good.

Golf and dinner package booked through golf bc.com for a twosome. Great Value for the round and dinner. Challenging course but nicely maintained. Back Nine a good trek if walking. Tee off @2:15, no waiting, staff friendly on the course and in the clubhouse. Had a choice of three entrees with the package. Not disappointed. Will definitely play again when... More

Stopped to use the driving range and ended up staying for breakfast,. large portions, very tasty. Came back for dinner and again was not disapointed, the weather cleared for long enough for us to enjoy the stunning views from the resturant.
