Planning your BC Wine Tour
wine + Golf
British Columbia is the only province in Canada where golfers can hit the links virtually year round. The temperate climate along the South Coast means snow won’t often dust the fairways and greens. But other regions such as the Southern Interior and Sunshine Coast often enjoy weather that will make play possible at least eight to 10 months of the year. Duffers will often boast that in BC, they can golf and ski on the same day. British Columbia’s biodiversity also makes for some of the most incredible playing terrain and backdrops for the province’s golf courses. Swaths of vivid green manicured fairways and greens are often framed by soaring mountain peaks and rocky outcrops, breathtaking canyons and valleys, dazzling lake, river and ocean views, sweeping grasslands, vineyards and orchards, formidable forests and stunning arid desert terrain. Good to Know: • There are now 300-plus golf courses across the province • Professional designers of some of BC’s links include Stanley Thompson, Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Doug Carrick, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player • Some tour companies offer “sip and play” packages that will appeal to both the wine and golf enthusiast • Shuttle services are offered to many of the golf courses around BC
