The Facility

Victoria’s Friendliest Public Golf Course

 

Highland Pacific Golf first opened nine holes in 2008 before expanding its second 9 in 2010.  HP continues to retain its model of having two separate nines to allow their guests to choose to play 9 or 18 holes.  Boasting the title of Victoria’s Friendliest Public Golf Course, Highland Pacific Golf was created for golfers who want to enjoy a scenic, but challenging championship golf course that is playable all year round. Minutes from downtown Victoria, BC, Highland Pacific overlooks the majestic Olympic Mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Thetis Lake Park.  The Club has quickly elevated itself as a must play when visiting Victoria and is a favourite among the locals. HP has hosted a number of provincial championships including the recent BC Juvenile Boys & Girls Championship.   This par 71 course can play as long as 6603 yards but does offer 6 different tee options to meet every golfers needs.

 

The practice facility opened before the golf course and quickly became an ideal and centrally located location to take lessons and improve your game.  There is a café conveniently located next to the hitting stall which helps create a very casual and social atmosphere.  Featuring a two-tiered tee line of 44 heated stalls, long and short game practice areas, lights for evening practice, and real terrain targets, including a water hazard to avoid or… aim for.  The practice range at Highland Pacific Golf was very quickly designated as one of the Top 100 Ranges in North America
