Victoria is known as a golfing destination for Canadians looking to play year-round, and three courses in the area have been listed by Scoregolf.com among their top 100 courses in Canada for 2022.
Private Victoria Golf Club earned the highest spot among the region’s courses at number 17 on the list, and finished third among BC’s 19 courses in the top 100. Vancouver’s Capilano was at number 6, while Sagebrush in Merritt was ranked 13. Little Victoria sat just above Greywolf (18) in Panorama and Shaughnessy (19) in Vancouver.
Founded in 1893, the Victoria Golf Club is the oldest 18-hole golf course in Canada still in its original location and the second oldest in North America. Its current course, designed in 1925 by AV Macan, is known for its views of the Pacific Ocean from much of the front nine and is considered by some to be “Canada’s Pebble Beach”.
Royal Colwood was Greater Victoria’s second highest club on the list, coming in at number 49, and was also designed by AV Macan in 1913.
The Bear Mountain Valley Public Course completes the region’s position in the rankings, ranking 82nd with its course designed by Jack and Steve Nicklaus in 2008.
Cabot Cliffs in Inverness, Nova Scotia was designed in 2015 by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.
