Golf in Vancouver British Columbia

Point Grey Golf and Country Club

In 1922, the formation of Point Grey Golf and Country Club was the outcome of the efforts of a few residents of Kerrisdale and Point Grey. An option was obtained on the Mole property consisting of about 96 acres on the lowlands and 10 on the highlands, which included the Mole residence. The Mole residence was used as the clubhouse. With the planting of more than 10,000 trees and millions spent over the last 80 years in upkeep and improvements, Point Grey Golf and Country Club is one of the top courses in Vancouver BC.

Vancouver British Columbia Attractions

These are just some of the many Vancouver BC Attractions you can enjoy when you come to visit Vancouver BC.

BC Place Stadium

What makes B.C. Place Stadium amazing? For starters, it's the biggest air-supported domed stadium in the world. More than 60,000 people can stay warm and dry while they take in their favourite events. The only thing between them and the elements outside is the thin fibreglass and Teflon roof, high above. It's like walking under a fabric sky -- one that's only 1/30 inch thick but stronger than steel.
