British Columbia is a golfer’s paradise, with snowcapped mountains, a coastline sculpted by the Pacific rainforests, sparkling lakes, rushing rivers and lush valleys. The diversity of the province ensures some of the most scenic and challenging golf courses in North America. There are now over 250 golf courses in British Columbia. On Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, and along the southwest coast of the BC mainland, the climate is often perfect for golf at least eight to nine months out of the year. Comparatively dry conditions prevail in the arid, southernmost valleys of BC’s Interior and Rockies regions, where golf flourishes from May to October. In Whistler and the Northern British Columbia Rockies, golfers enjoy temperatures in the mid-70s through the spring and fall, with highs in the 80s through the summer months.
