If you have spent any time trying to get a tee time at one of the City of Vancouver’s three championship golf courses, the numbers will not come as a surprise.
They are simply off the charts.
Year to date (through mid-May), Fraserview, Langara and McCleery have logged a total of 68,365 rounds. That’s more than double the 33,562 rounds played in the same period of 2019, which is the best comparable as the courses were closed for a significant chunk of the spring season last year due to COVID 19.
“Our first-quarter numbers were unprecedented,” says Dennis Luick, supervisor of golf operations. “It was a mild winter. I don’t know if we even closed one day. So that also helped, but there’s no doubt COVID is driving the demand.”
All three courses are pretty much fully booked each day, British Columbia Golf’s Brad Ziemer writes.
