Event Courses Details & Location

Round 1 – Chilliwack Golf Club
Established in 1958, is a semi-private facility located between Chilliwack and Abbotsford– only 45 minutes from Vancouver. It features magnificent tree-lined fairways, a creek that meanders through the back nine and breathtaking mountain vistas in every direction.  The club has 500+ members who are passionate about both golf and their club.  Seeing more than 50,000 rounds played last year, the Chilliwack Golf Club is a popular destination for many golfers in the area and plays host to one of the longest running and most successful “Opens” in the province each July.

Round 2 & Pro-Am – Sandpiper Golf Course
Recent winner of the PGA of BC’s “Hidden Gem” awards, is located 75 minutes East of Vancouver and is open to the public 364 days a year. This par 72 course runs 6,500 yards from the back tees, and is gently sloped, featuring four sets of tees for all playing abilities.  Canadian course designer, Russ Olsen, has done an amazing job of taking advantage of the spectacular water and mountain vistas when designing this masterpiece. Sandpiper Golf Course has played host to several Vancouver Golf Tour events, most notably the 2013-2016 Canada Bread BC Match Play & the VGT’s Inaugural 36-Hole Major Series Event the ‘2013 VGT Sandpiper Open’.

Round 3 – The Falls Golf Club
Chilliwack was carved from the foothills of Mount Cheam, providing the course with a dramatic landscape that is ideal for a challenging round. The views from the golf course span across the scenic Fraser Valley. The challenge and scenery of the Falls has earned it a reputation amongst locals as one of BC’s best-kept secrets. The rolling terrain is accented with natural rock outcroppings and tall cedars, which both come into play throughout the golf course. The changes in elevation total over 750 feet, ranging from subtle to dramatic. There are many formidable holes but they each have an average of five sets of tees so that players of all abilities can play to their skill level. The Falls Golf Club’s memorable fourth hole even has nine different tees as well as a 100-foot drop to the green.
