9 Reasons to Join
Victoria Golf Club is ranked #14 on the list of Canada's Top Golf Courses by Golf Digest (2015-16), #1 on Vancouver Island, and #3 in B.C. We are the oldest private golf club in Golf Digest's Top 20 Courses in Canada. Our rankings prove time and again why becoming a Member of the Victoria Golf Club should be #1 on your list.
Oak Bay is one of the sunniest, driest places in Canada during the peak summer months, and has the mildest winter weather in the country. We're often golfing in the sun in December while most of the country is covered in snow! Oak Bay area receives one-third annual rainfall of Vancouver and less than Toronto.
Unmatched Scenery & Wildlife
With seven holes along the water, the Victoria Golf Club is one of the most scenic courses in the world! We experience unique wildlife here such as orcas, bald eagles, harbour seals, otters, mink, etc. We are home to two resident eagles who produce eaglets each spring - sightings are daily occurrences for our Members and guests.
Impressive Staff Departments
Our award-winning Pro Shop consists of ten PGA Professionals on staff to help improve your game, and several full-time Merchandisers whose knowledge about clubs, apparel and accessories will benefit your golf game. In 2013 and again in 2016, we were awarded PGA of Canada Best Pro Shop in Canada, and PGA of BC Facility of the Year in 2007. Our 18 holes are always kept in superb conditions by our talented Links Department. The course is playable year-round, thanks to multi-million dollar capital improvements in drainage and irrigation. Our F&B Department focuses on local and seasonal ingredients, with more than 95% of the menu prepared in-house. And our Administration Department, led by the GM, ensures all Members' needs are well taken care of.
The oldest 18-hole golf course in Canada and oldest on the continent west of the Mississippi, VGC was founded in 1893.

VGC is a popular venue for private events and weddings; and an incomparable place to play golf 364 days a year (we only close for Santa).
