Greater Vancouver and Lower Mainland Golf sports information, listings and links
Background of the Sport
A favorite pastime for both locals and seasoned visitors of Vancouver is going to your local Pitch and Putt golf course. No need to be an expert golfer - all one needs is a weekend interest in giving some clubs a swing, and around ten bucks. Holes vary from 20 to 100 yards, and two irons plus a putter will do you nicely for the day. No driving, no hiking for miles with loads of expensive gear - just pitching and putting your ball. Vancouver and area has several public pitch and putt golf courses that are almost always available for walk-on games, and the price makes missing Pebble Beach not such a big deal.
Because the courses is more compact, the only equipment needed are two irons and a putter.
