Cordova Bay is one of the better, affordable golf courses in the greater Victoria region. The course is lovely and you can end it with a visit to the local eatery. Get an Arnold Palmer and sit and enjoy the lovely weather.

The course is easy to walk,it drains well even if it's raining while you play. Good snack bar between 9&10, and excellent food in the dining room.

This course was in great shape with amazing tour quality greens but there was one HUGE PROBLEM. There were a LOT of dogleg holes which had blind landing areas. This would be fine if you had a picture of the hole but there was no GPS in the cart, no signs on the tee boxes and no map of the... More

I love this course....laid out so that it does not KILL the non-pro golfer...meaning easy to not to loose balls - yet,a s with many courses...offers a real challenge. Nicely maintained course...easy to walk...freindly staff. Drains really well during the West Coast winters....love the greens - though they are not that easy!

Course in great shape, staff were friendly and helpful. Very walkable with a few challenging holes. Watch for deer wondering around, no fear of people. Club house and restaurant well appointed, large selection. Played with locals Bob and Mike who were very helpful in navigating the course as this was our first time here.

Played Cordova Bay in mid August 2014, the fairways, greens and tee boxes were all in outstanding shape. Although it's a relatively flat course its very challenging but fair. There's lot to see as its a botanical course with the odd garden and goats at different spots. We really enjoyed this course.

On a great sunny mid-September afternoon, Cordova Bay was my choice for a quick round. I had played the course twenty years ago and remembered that it was a good choice then. Pace of play was excellent (about 4:10), the greens held the shots quite well and the course is quite benign if you hit the ball reasonably straight. The... More

Cordova Bay is an exceptional golf experience.. The course layout is welcoming and offers challenges ...often subtle ones. Easily walkable. Good range and for a full day a best in class practice area and exec course across the road. A good restaurant...overall, a very good experience.
