“Lovely place for your short game!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

This scenic little pitch and putt in the most beautiful park in Vancouver is a great way to sharpen up your short game. You only need a couple of clubs as all the holes are par 3's. Situated in the park, once you have completed your game you can enjoy other aspects of this spectacular and huge park which is essentially surrounded by water and enhanced by the mountain. ocean and city views. You can get there by public transit, but the fun way is by bike...they can be rented just outside the park on Denman Street.

“Golf course in the midst of the city?!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

I am not a golfer...or at least I wasn't until I visited the Stanley Park Pitch and Putt course. My partner is a golfer and he enjoyed the course, so I suggest that it is a reasonable activity for people who do or do not have golf experience. For non-golfers the short green lengths make it fun to learn and improve.
The surroundings are gorgeous! Stanley Park is huge enough to allow you to forget you in the city, but close enough to the city core that walking to the course is completely reasonable.
There are a number of pitch and putt courses within Vancouver's city park system, so if you enjoy your experience branch out to the other city parks and try your hand. Clubs are available for rent from mid-March to mid-October. From mid-October to mid-March the course is open for use (weather permitting) but no rentals are available. This is a fun family activity or you may be paired with other single golfers if the course is busy....what a great way to make new friends in Vancouver and enjoy the weather.

“Gentle Exercise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

This is a lovely par 3 course, just the place for beginners and occasional players. The greens are so well kept and you even see the occasional squirrel or raccoon. The holes range from 40 yards to 100 yards and the club house has toilets if needed. There is a vending machine which dispenses cold drinks.

“A hidden gem, even if you're no good at golf!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This course is a great little pitch and putt. Each hole is a par 3, some being over 100 yards and others being 40 or so. I used to play quite a bit of golf and my girlfriend has only had the odd go at the driving range but we both had a really good time. My girlfriend even abondoned the pitcher and just putted her way round and enjoyed it!

It's a very pretty couse and you can turn up without anything and hire clubs, and buy a tee and ball. Just pick up a scorecard from the box and off you go.

There are some nice clean toilets and locker rooms with food and drinks available both from the vending machines and the clubhouse.

Give this course a go, you won't be disappointed!
