Bowen Island Golf Club
Bowen Island Golf Club is located on Bowen Island (I know, obviously) a short 20 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in Vancouver. We had the opportunity to play it for the second time earlier this week (with our CK Golf Solutions Golf Industry Skins Game series). It is a 9-hole, par 35 Russ Olson designed layout. The yardage is 3,003 (there are multiple tee box options). It is a fantastic piece of property with a good mix of holes (two par 5’s, four par 4’s, and three par 3’s) and fabulous views. The greens are challenging to say the least and the property is in great shape.
We enjoyed 9 holes in the morning, followed by lunch on the terrific patio with a view and then another 9 holes before heading back to the ferry. Our morning nine finished with one of our pros – Hal Eremko – making an ‘Ace’ on the 8th hole. Beer was drunk all around. Congrats Hal!
With rates for 9-holes stating from $30.00 weekdays (9-holes) to $35 weekends (9-holes) it is worth the travel time to get over and give this golf course a try! You can view the Club’s website here.
Bowen Island Ferry
The trip over to Bowen Island is part of the fun. The small BC Ferry is one that you can stand out on the car deck almost at water level and enjoy the amazing view for the 20 minute journey over.
