Explore Squamish Valley Golf Club

In early 1965 a group of men met to consider establishing a golf course in Squamish.  Committees were set up to consider possible sites, method of development, methods of financing, and the organization.  From this small beginning, and with the assistance of many, an 18-hole golf course has been established.

July 1, 1967, saw the opening of the first nine-holes to a Gala Celebration.  Much enjoyable golf was played, but it became obvious that an 18-hole course should be completed as soon as possible.

The course is situated on the banks of the Mamquam River, and the river makes a natural boundary for half the course.  The course was developed to take best advantage of the natural lay of the land and the forest cover.  Trees were left as natural hazards, as well as stumps from previous logging operations.  It is surrounded by snowcapped mountains year round, giving one the feeling of Alpine atmosphere.

The 18-holes are fully watered by modern irrigation equipment, and ensures its green throughout the playing season.  The temperature in summer is usually in the 70’s, due mostly to moderating winds blowing in from Howe Sound.  The course is normally playable for most of the year.

The club is registered as a non-profit organization under the Societies Act. Benefits of membership are: priority on booked starting times; members’ tournaments; clubhouse rights and storage; official handicap and membership in the BCGA; voting rights in club affairs, and annual green fees.
