Victoria, BC's capital city is home to Canada's mildest winters, allowing visitors and locals alike to enjoy golf year round BC golf trips.
Olympic View Golf Club boasts a variety of golf holes that compliment individual masterpieces. Nestled deep inside a pristine forest, natural beauty is punctuated by two waterfalls, twelve lakes, roaming deer, soaring eagles, and the beautiful snow peaked Olympic Mountains in the horizon. If some of the golf shots on this target venue quicken your pulse, the tranquility of our setting should help to calm and center you. The 17th hole encompasses enough natural beauty for an entire course. From the tee, aim toward a breathtaking 40 foot waterfall that frames the green 455 yards away.
This signature hole plays through a steep, narrow valley past a huge rock column and an elegant Japanese garden. It's no wonder Olympic View golf was the first golf course in British Columbia that Tiger Woods played, as an amateur in 1994.

Great time! Genuine welcome from staff, felt as if I was not "trespassing" like one can be made to feel in other places. The member I played with "Glenn" was a great ambassador for the club, very helpful. All in all, I can not remember a better experience in a very long time. Thanks folks, I will return. Steve Lesway
