“5 hour round as a twosome”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

After dropping my membership at OV, I tried to play there last week. Tee time was 50 minutes late from starting and painfully I was placed between 2 groups of staff members.

The round was so slow, my playing partner had to leave to go to work. The marshalls were no help in getting the groups moving since they were chums with people playing in the groups.

After 4.45 hours on the course, I had enough and left after 16 holes.

“Scenic Course and Challenging Layout”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We enjoyed our round at Olympic View. It was tough since there were a number of blind shot (and we'd never played here before), but there were some fun holes and very picturesque views. Worth playing if you're in the area.

“A Challenge with memorable backdrops”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

I went back to play this course after a several year absence and found it to be an even more attractive layout than I remembered. The club is nestled in some rolling hills and feels more remote than it actually is. On the day we visited, driving in from Victoria was rainy but the skies turned blue by tee off to reveal glistening, rolling, inviting fairways. Every hole offers a new adventure along with spectacular views and dramatic backgrounds to frame your shot. A couple holes are even accented by waterfalls. We thoroughly enjoyed the adventure and will return when the opportunity next presents itself. Treat yourself and experience The View.

“Very natural”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

A must play when on a golf trip, this was our 3rd time playing here. Tough but fair course , great views, lots of wildlife, and good food in the clubhouse. Clubhouse was under renos this trip so we really missed siting on the deck overlooking the 18th hole. Will return again

“Fore for Food”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This place has always had excellent food. They do a nice job of presentation, and the quality is always great. They might be a dollar or two high compared to some, but the freshness and the quality of the ingredients more than makes up for it.
