Nanaimo Golf Club is a well reknowned and highly respected semi-private golf course in the heart of Vancouver Island. Located on a ridge above Departure Bay in Nanaimo BC, Nanaimo Golf Club features beautiful ocean views, tall evergreens, majestic willow and maple trees, and a temperate climate so comfortable, you can play here all year round. The superb course design and exceptional course conditioning have earned Nanaimo Golf Club the reputation for being the best all-season golf course on Vancouver Island. The clubhouse, newly rebuilt in 2013, features two full dining lounges and a banquet hall, each with their own patio overlooking the 18th green, Departure Bay and beyond that, the Coastal Mountains on the mainland. The locker rooms are easily the best looking on the whole island, with maple-finished lockers. The building was named the winner of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board 2014 Commercial Division Award of Excellence–Hospitality and Judges Choice Award for the best new commercial building of the year. The course itself is a spectacular 18-hole semi-private course, with full practise facilities and Pro Shop. At 6,700 yards from its championship tees, the course is a test for low handicap golfers to produce long, straight drives to reach the greens in regulation. At the same time, the three other sets of tees on each hole allow middle and high handicap players to find a level of play suited to their game. The course is open year-round, weather permitting. Their covered and heated Driving Range is open every day from morning to late evening, rain or shine. All ages are welcome.
