While Vancouver Island is famous as a year-round destination for Canadian golfers, summer time is the busiest season, with courses playing at their peak conditions. The new real estate development, The Ridge in Courtenay is set in the middle of so many golfing choices, with more than 10 golf courses within a 75 km radius.
Many of these courses are famous as members of the Vancouver Island Golf Trail, including Storey Creek, Crown Isle and Fairwinds, while many others offer up family-friendly fairways, unique signature holes, and stunning vistas.
The newly re-built, Graham Cooke designed Campbell River Golf and Country Club is scheduled to open later this summer and is sure to become a must-play.
If you’re a golfer or outdoor enthusiast, this is the place to be. Select your new building lot at The Ridge, with many offering ocean and mountain views, and head to the fairway!
