Crown Isle is seeking a motivated individual to lead its Resort and golf community into the next era of the community’s expansion. Located just minutes from the Comox airport and downtown Courtenay, Crown Isle is a Resort surrounded by a master-planned community that is continuing to grow. Qualified candidates are expected to be the face of the property and bring their leadership skills to this multi-faceted business.

The Facility

Crown Isle Resort & Golf Community has become the hub of the Comox Valley for a premier lifestyle. It was also honoured with the Facility of Year award from the PGA of BC in 2020. The championship 18-hole golf course will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2023, and the community as a whole 35 years, becoming the leading golf community on the north island. Crown Isle is in the process of launching a new 25-year plan that will be the next stage of the property, including adding more amenities and further expansion of their residential and commercial developments. It will be an exciting time to be part of the future success at Crown Isle.

CI has hosted the PGATOUR Canada Qualifying School event on a number of occasions. The course is designed by renowned architect Graham Cooke with a total length of 7,024 yards from the back tees,and boasts magnificent views of the Beaufort mountain range through the trees at several holes. With 90 rooms of accommodation (and more in the planning phase), multiple F&B options, full-sized practice facility, and proximity to outdoor activities like fishing and skiing - the property has endless possibilities to continue to grow its reputation of being a year-round world-class resort.

The 871-acre residential golf community in the heart of the Comox Valley in Courtenay embodies a lifestyle of friends, family, and year-round outdoor enjoyment. Aside from the 18-hole golf course, it also has an 18-hole par 3 facility next door, The Park at Crown Isle.
