Have had numerous meals at the Satellite Restaurant. Always first class food, the service is great and they never rush you out. Inside dining nice, patio dining great unless it is raining or very windy. Would recommend to anyone. Great food at reasonable prices and the specials are always good too

I have golfed with the lady's night as well as golf with friends on the course as well. Both the meal with the lady's night and eating in the Satellite Bar & Grill have all been very good. I've eaten on the deck as well as inside and the views are fabulous.

We had our annual golf tournament today for my husband and his brothers birthday. It was a rainy day and course wasnt busy, yet we were Hassled by golf Marshalls 5 times in the first 13 holes for being too slow (we finished 18 holes in 4 hours 40 mins, which is 10 mins off the 4.5 hour pace they...

Good morning, I regret the effect our Player Assistants had on your overall experience. We will endeavor to communicate better in the future. It's true, we only had 180 golfers including 30 booked after your group outing - this is not an extremely busy day for a Saturday, but given the rain this is still a moderate amount of play....

The golf course is challenging, interesting and has lots of friendly members. Views are superlative, not only on the course but in the clubhouse as well. Be prepared to lose a few balls both in the rough and the water. Food in the clubhouse is of good quality with sufficient choices for my vegetarian appetite as well as for my... More

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.

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.
