Thinking about booking a tee time? We’ve got the rundown to South Surrey’s hotspots if you’re a golfer. From challenging courses to beginner par threes and weekend warriors to full-fledged golf junkies there’s a fairway for everyone.
An easy 12-minute drive from Highland Park and Glenview, Morgan Creek Golf Club is home to an 18-hole, par-72 course as well as a Golf Teaching Academy and Equipment Fitting Centre. With stunning views of Mount Baker and the Golden Ears Mountain Range, it’s the ideal destination to catch the sun’s rays and indulge in some our province’s super natural beauty. Finish off the game with a refreshing beverage or stay for a full three-course dinner from Morgan’s Restaurant and Wine Bar, which overlooks the 6,967-yard course. Both the course and the restaurant are open to the public year-round.
Hazelmere Golf Course was originally built in 1962, but underwent an extensive renovation in 2003. The renovated Hazelmere includes a natural grass practice facility with five target greens and a practice fairway bunker. Located between the US border and Langley and a mere 10-minute drive from the Morgan Heights area, you’ll find both professional and amateur golfers teeing off at this 18-hole course or relaxing in the one of the Clubhouse’s Panorama, Garden or Fireside Rooms. And Hazelmere offers more than just golf. Boasting four indoor tennis courts, Hazelmere Tennis club is reputed to be one of the finest tennis facilities in the Fraser Valley. Drop the kids for tennis lessons, while you hit the green!
A golf course steeped in history. Peace Portal Golf Course was the pet project of Seattle lawyer Sam Hill. Most famously known for constructing the International Peace Arch, Hill hoped that Peace Portal would become an internationally renowned course. Now in its 82nd year, the 18-hole course receives regular visitors from the lower mainland and the neighbouring US. Border lineup looking a little too long? Grab a coffee at the Clubhouse and practice your chipping at the chipping green.
Meridian Golf Par 3
There’s no website for Meridian Par 3, but trust us when we say this is one of the prettiest golf courses in South Surrey. The land for this 18-hole course used to be occupied by a hazelnut farm (an old nut house still stands near the 18th tee). Now, a sea of tall cedars and weeping willows add to the picturesque beauty of the family-run Meridian Golf Par 3. Of course, these majestic trees do make some of the holes a little trickier to see! The course and clubhouse are open year-round, weather permitting.
So go on, grab your golf bag and get ready to drive the range.
