Six golf courses are found between Nanoose and Nanaimo Airport: Fairwinds Golf Club at Nanoose Bay, Winchelsea View Golf Course at Lantzville, Nanaimo Golf Club, Pryde Vista Golf Club in Nanaimo, Eaglequest Golf Centre at South Wellington, and Cottonwood Golf Course in Cassidy. Construction of the Oceanview Golf Resort & Spa on Cable Bay Lands at Cedar has been stalled by the recession.
A new website titled Nanaimo Golf Courses now provides information on all of these golf courses and resorts on central Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. There’s no need to fly south for superlative golfing. It’s all here.
Green fees for 18 holes vary from a stiff $79 at the Fairwinds Golf Club and $72 at the Nanaimo Golf Club to $50 at the Cottonwood Golf Course, $35 at Winchelsea View Golf Course, and $23 at Pryde Vista Golf Club. The Eaglequest Golf Centre has only nine holes at $16. Clearly, the Pryde Vista Golf Club, 155 Pryde Avenue, off Bowen Road, Nanaimo, is the best value of the lot. Dress codes also vary from stuffy at the more expensive courses to informal at the rest.
