Marine Drive Golf Club offers an outstanding combination of features and advantages.
Consider some of these benefits:
Marine Drive was designed by A.V. Macan, who set the golf course architectural standard for the Pacific Northwest in the first half of the 20th century.
Marine Drive members have set standards of excellence in the game of golf. We have a rich tradition of champion men and women who call our Club home.
Set on the north arm of the Fraser River, Marine Drive is one of only three private golf clubs in the city of Vancouver and is easily accessed from the downtown core.
Our links staff maintain our course to the best playing conditions year round. Marine Drive is known throughout the Canadian golfing community to have some of the best-maintained fairways and greens in the area. Reinvestment into course equipment and infrastructure is a priority for Marine Drive.
In 2010, all bunkers and green surrounds were completely renovated. Golf course architect Jim Urbina was selected for this project because of his commitment to maintaining A.V. Macan's philosophy, with today's golfer in mind. The renovation resulted in the course being more approachable and fun for the average golfer and more formidable for the low handicap player; cornerstones to A.V. Macan's design philosophy.
Golf Shop and Practice Facilities
Our well-stocked Golf Shop has equipment and accessories to give you the best golfing experience. Our well-maintained practice facilities and teaching center, with a staff of CPGA teaching professionals, will help you hone your game.
Events and Activities
For golfers with a competitive streak, the Fixture Calendar at Marine Drive is full of events for all ages, from early March until the end of October. There are also tournaments for the social golfer, as well as seasonal functions such as the Annual Members' Christmas Party.
The clubhouse is an inviting oasis in the city designed for your enjoyment and entertainment. It brings together golfing tradition and West Coast ambience with a casual lounge, formal dining room, and space for business meetings and banquets.
Whether a casual lunch after golf, an evening of wine or scotch appreciation, or a family dinner in the Club dining room, you will find our Chef's menus to be varied and delicious. Family gatherings, business meetings, weddings, and other catered functions can all be accommodated at Marine Drive.
