For the ultimate holiday experience, let one of the knowledgeable Guest Services Agents at Sooke Harbour Resort and Marina book all of your tee times for you.

Bear Mountain is the crème de la crème of courses, recognized nation-wide and the site of two of the most highly rated golf courses in Canada. Enjoy panoramic mountain views, golf cart rentals, club valet, and two premium courses to choose from – a mountain course and a valley course. Or play them both! Bear Mountain is golfing at its finest. The facility also offers fine dining, tennis courts, and more.
If you’re seeking something a little simpler than full-service club valet service, head to Olympic View Golf Club and spend your afternoon driving your way across their sprawling course. Culminate your game with a trip to the Clubhouse or a delectable dinner at Forester’s Restaurant. What better way to spend the day?
If you’re still hankering for another nine holes, head out to Metchosin Golf and Country Club to quell your craving. A west-coast rustic course comprised primarily of par threes and fours; most golfers can play this course in just a few hours. It’s the perfect option for those vacation days with nothing scheduled in the morning (or afternoon). If you have the entire day free, cap off your game with a few cold ones at Metchosin’s Bar and Grill. If you love a hearty meal after a round of golf, consider the course’s “9 and Dine” offer, valid on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
If eighteen holes leaves you wishing you’d stopped halfway, DeMamiel Creek Golf Course also offers golfers a sunny nine holes, perfect for players of all experience levels. DeMamiel is a favourite of locals and is appropriate for children and teenagers too, especially if they’re just learning. If you’re vacationing with the family but dying to play around, DeMamiel is the perfect compromise!
