BC Golf Destinations
British Columbia has long enjoyed a reputation as one of the best places in North America to go golfing with its variety of exceptional golf experiences.
The province’s popularity is due in large part to world-class courses designed by leading-edge golf architects. Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Les Furber are among the many who have worked their magic here.
The other huge bonus to golfing in BC is the spectacular natural scenery. Many golf courses have mountain and ocean vistas, and settings range from coastal rainforests to an oasis in the middle of the desert.
