GolfBC Group

GolfBC’s nine courses offer first-class services and amenities that cater to more than just golf enthusiasts

Sure, GolfBC Group provides a superb selection of courses throughout the province: nine in all, ranging from the Jack Nicklaus-designed Nicklaus North in Whistler to B.C.’s most scenic course, Furry Creek (setting for the famous Bob Barker/Adam Sandler fistfight in Happy Gilmore), located north of Vancouver.

But the company’s determination to create and acquire world-class facilities has paid off in other ways. The courses may be playing host to pro and amateur golfers alike, but increasingly business people and event planners—as well as anyone interested in fine dining or great shopping—are seeking out GolfBC’s courses.

That’s because each property has enough amenities to make it a multi-function destination. Take the flagship Nicklaus North: even when the links are closed during the winter season, its Table Nineteen Lakeside Eatery is buzzing with excitement—in no small way due to the talents of its executive chef, Eric Gilchrist.

Looking to stage your wedding at a memorable location? There’s no better place than Mayfair Lakes in Richmond. With its abundance of waterways and a heart-shaped outdoor ceremony site, it’s the perfect backdrop for nuptials. In fact, the club hosts around 60 weddings annually.

For companies looking to change up the scenery for their meetings, GolfBC’s clubs are wonderful alternatives to traditional downtown venues. Mayfair’s banquet and meeting rooms can accommodate up to 200 guests; delegates to Furry Creek can conduct business overlooking a cascading waterfall; and its two Okanagan facilities (with three 18-hole and one nine-hole courses) impress with the picturesque sage brush hills surrounding The Okanagan Golf Club and the dramatic Gallagher’s Canyon.

Vancouver Island is well represented by GolfBC too: Victoria’s Olympic View Golf Club’s links, award-winning golf academy and restaurant are framed by the Olympic Mountains, while Arbutus Ridge is located in the Cowichan Valley’s seaside community of Cobble Hill. Both courses are open year-round and welcome golfers, diners and event guests alike.

Add retail amenities to each of these facilities and it’s easy to understand why GolfBC has evolved from the golfer’s choice to becoming a top destination for a wide variety of guests.
