The Gold River Golf & Country Club offers some of the finest golfing possible on Vancouver Island. This full size 9 hole course is sitting beside the Gold River and boasts not only some of the most picturesque golfing available but also some of the finest greens anywhere.
Our licensed lounge is great for families wanting to enjoy a lunch or dinner out, or an appetizer and a beverage. Unfortunately though we do get some rain…lots of rain during the winter months and as a result the course is generally closed from November to April each year.
