Established in 1928
The Salt Spring Island Golf Course is a beautiful, modestly challenging 9-hole, 3037 yard, par 36 course of undulating fairways, water features and mature forests, with the north east slopes of Mount Erskine providing the backdrop to many holes.
Consisting of two par 5 holes, two par 3 holes and the remainder par 4’s, the course covers 70 acres of rolling terrain. Alternate tees provide a full-length “Back 9” if you prefer to play 18 holes. A set of forward tees shortens the course to 2760 yards for a men’s par 35 and ladies par 37.

Featuring a very walkable course and a great place for a quick round of golf while you’re visiting Salt Spring Island.
While most holes offer ample landing areas for your tee shots, careful placement will afford the best lies and angles for your second shot. Greens are maintained to be of average size with a medium roll; however, large breaks on many of the greens necessitate creative approaches that change with pin placement.
The most difficult holes are the 7th and 9th. The 7th hole is a long 437-yard par 4 with a water hazard and a tiered green that challenges even our most experienced members. The 9th, at 383 yards is reachable in two, but the left-to-right dogleg and the sloping green present a real challenge to finish with a par. The most picturesque hole is the par 4 4 th where one drives from an elevated tee across a long sloping fairway, to a second shot to an elevated two-tier green surrounded by mature fir trees.
