Golf | Cordova Bay Golf Course

A course worth playing.

We, here at Cordova Bay, are proud to offer a relaxed atmosphere, stunning course conditions and spectacular views. The grass is short in the places it should be and long in others. The trees are beautiful to look at and challenging to hit from. Mt. Baker rises imperiously from the horizon, daring you to match its perfection with every shot you hit.

Keep your head down while swinging but up while you're not. You wouldn't want to miss the more than 75 species of birds that call Cordova Bay home. You'll see scores of deer. Now and again you'll spot mink, otter, rabbits, muskrat, and if you hook it way left on #3 you can meet Jack, our resident goat (R.I.P Arnie & Freddie). As a certified Audubon Sanctuary (the first on Vancouver Island, in fact) we offer you wildlife almost as beautiful as the gardens kept by our award winning grounds crew.

From the Golf Shop, through 18 marvelous holes and into Bill Mattick's, our restaurant, we invite you to find out for yourself why we were named Facility of the Year by the PGA of British Columbia, TWICE!

The Ridge Course

Did we mention there's a second golf course at Cordova Bay? This one might be shorter, but it is just as much fun to play.


The perfect place to perfect that short game (and we all know it needs work), or for a newcomer to fall in love with the greatest game ever created. The Ridge is a 9-hole, par 3 golf course that is beautifully manicured, and always interesting and engaging. With holes ranging from 52-115 yards, you'll have plenty of opportunities to use your irons and wedges. Oh, and don't forget to take in that view!

Sure, Bill Robinson, our architect, had a hand in this one too, which is why it is so enjoyable to play. The Ridge opened in 1999, and like its big sister, it has the same outstanding conditions. That's because a great grounds crew works on both, which means putts roll straight when you expect them to, and break a little more where gravity takes hold. Give us a call at 250.658.3996 or reserve a tee time online.

Please call us ahead of time to check for course closures.


Holing out from off the green is arguably the best feeling in golf. The Parc Short Game Practice Facility, located at the Ridge Course, provides the opportunity to work on every facet of your game from inside 40 yards. A massive putting green (with 9-hole putting course) is complemented by 2 chipping greens and a practice bunker. Included in your hourly fee is access to the 9-hole putting course where you can play a round with friends for a friendly wager.


The Ridge Café is now FULLY open for business!

We will be open from 9am until 3pm offering an assortment of menu items to satisfy both your hunger and your thirst requirements.
