“Cheap golf”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

In a nutshell, if you're looking for a quick, cheap and shorter round of golf, this is a good place. It's also a great place to start to get into hitting longer, once you've outgrown the pitch & putts around town. Unfortunately though, the low price and accessibility tends to attract a rowdier crowd.

Pros:
* Plays in 3 to 3.5 hrs as long as it's not too busy or you don't get stuck behind drinkers / duffers.
* Mostly par 3's with a few par 4's, good for beginners.
* A couple holes require carries.
* Can actually be very pretty, especially in the summer, and a couple holes play right along the edge of the Fraser River.
* Occasional wildlife sightings (coyotes typically)
* Good, 2-level, heated range with very cheap range balls.
* A "membership" option that very quickly pays for itself in discounts and range balls.
* Very, very inexpensive, especially for sunset rounds. More than once I have finished a full round here for under $16 in early summer.
* Doesn't get quite as soggy as some other local courses when the weather has been wet.

Cons
* Attracts a rowdy crowd.
* Not always well-maintained, you roll the dice. Frequently areas are "ground under repair" and greens are not always in great shape (I'm looking at you, 17th green)
* Sand traps are very packed, almost like hard dirt.

In addition there is a pro shop, restaurant, the lessons here seem very cheap and there are drop-in clinics, easily accessible, lots of parking, and there's a mini-golf course here for a low fee.

3 stars because of how it compares to other golf courses, but 5 stars for value and versatility. Despite the rating, I definitely frequent this place and will keep coming back until I'm a much better golfer (and probably even then, to use the range).
