Bear Mountain Resort – Valley Course – Victoria, British Columbia
The Valley course meanders through forest, borders lakes, and traverses creeks and rivers throughout its 18 holes, while offering spectacular view of British Columbia’s beautiful landscape.
In contrast to the existing Mountain course, the par 71 Valley course measures 6807 yards from the Golden Bear tees – around 400 yards shorter than its sibling. Factor in elevated tee boxes, more generous fairway widths, fewer bunkers and larger greens, and the Valley course will likely be considered a ‘friendlier’ version of the original. Rolling through terrain at elevations of between 300 and 500 feet above sea level, there is still plenty of challenge, and many holes that could be considered the signature hole.
Bear Mountain Resort can now boast of having the only 36 holes of Nicklaus Design golf, at any one facility in Canada.
