Hi Judy and Michael, thank you very much for taking the time to provide feedback. I regret that we did not meet or exceed your expectations. It is true, this year we fell behind getting our bunkers into proper condition. We were distracted with several projects including a new tee box for hole #11. That doesn't excuse the fact that...

Played here for the first time in November 2015, Using borrowed sticks and a new driver played a round in 4 hours, in the sun and fresh air. Saw 5 deer on the course, two of which walked up to us to see the funny bipeds. Hit a frightfully high score, but didn't much care because I was having fun:... More

My wife and I go here fairly frequently and find the food reliably good and the prices reasonable. The views across the landscape to Saltspring Island are wonderful.

Bought two groupons for $30 each(one for me one for a friend) , thought it was a good deal until I arrived at the course and in the fine print it stated must come with another person, had to pay full rate for second person( $57)Disappointed at myself and the the way the groupon was placed. 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....

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.
