This picturesque course is set high above Coquitlam on Eagle Mountain, offering great golf in a spectacular mountain setting. Course designer Michael Hurdzan incorporated large Douglas Firs, massive granite rock faces and rugged ravines into this par 72, 6770-yard course. Power carts are equipped with GPS terminals that give you fly-overs, tips and yardage on every hole. Adding to the unforgettable experience is the 35,000-square-foot wood-and-beam West Coast-inspired clubhouse.
The Vancouver Golf Club, recognized as one of the finest golf clubs in the Pacific Northwest, is a prestigious private club set in a stunning woodland park setting of over 176 acres. Host of the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open, the 18-hole championship course dates back to 1911 and the timeless course design and modern facilities keep members coming back year after year.
This nine-hole, par 27 course is a great place to work on your short game year round. You’ll also find a chipping green, putting green, mini golf and FootGolf on site. What’s FootGolf, you ask? It’s a sport that uses the same rules as traditional golf except instead of a bag of equipment, all you need is your foot and a soccer ball. It’s played in groups of four players and you kick from designated tee markers. Score!
The high-flying sport of disc golf has a growing following around the world and Mundy Park is the perfect place to toss the disc around. The game – sometimes referred to as frisbee golf – is played much like traditional golf, although instead of a ball and clubs, you throw a disc.
Coquitlam’s 400-acre Mundy Park boasts a permanent free nine-hole disc golf course located at 655 Hillcrest St. Round up some friends and drop by to give it a try. For more information about the sport in B.C., visit BC Disc Sports.
