Love the golf but

If you do not stop for a bite after around you really missed a nice treat at a fair price. Great nachos!

I played this course on July 29th early in the morning. The moment we pulled up to the tee box the starter was extremely condescending. There were three members waiting to tee up that clearly knew the starter, and he decided to put my friend and I out in front of them. My friend is not a great golfer, and... More

My husband and I drove the Malahat last week to come in for lunch and we will definitely be returning. A younger girl ( trying to remember her name I believe it's Michaela) was serving us and it was one of the most pleasant experiences we have had in a long time. She paid close attention to detail, checking in... More

Overall great course,wildlife all around and fish and chips for supper was the best I've... More

There isn't anything much not to like. Played the course in May and it was in excellent condition -- especially the greens. The scenery was fantastic and the pace of play was more than acceptable. There are several holes that the average golfer will never ( and I mean " never " ) make par without divine intervention. The clubhouse... More

AR Golf is an excellent course with tight fairways and GREAT greens! Quite wet at the moment but will dry up quickly and give the hackers or semi-pros a run for their money. Love the place!

The course was beautiful for mid-November! Loved the heated restroom on the 5th hole! The only challenge was finding our way back to the club house after nine holes. This is the first time we have played this course and thought it unusual the ninth hole landed is quite far from the clubhouse.

I am not a golfer yet, but enjoy watching people playing and wish to learn it myself as soon as health permits. My current handicap is rather of physical than golf related nature. Traveling from France my Canadian partner and I visited Arbutus Ridge for just one day during an exploration trip last spring. We had heard that Arbutus Ridge... More

After another great round I felt compelled to write a review. This is simply a super golf course with a challenging and unique layout. Just as important are the people that work there. Wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable, and they really make the experience awesome. In addition, the Chef and Sous-Chef are a 1-2 punch of excellence that deliver consistently yummy... More
