Point Grey—For today, and the future
At the heart of every great private golf club is its course. It is the living, breathing component that members come to test themselves against, and where they enjoy the comradery that only golf provides.
As a golf course, Point Grey has that timeless quality that only the best facilities can offer.
From the first tee, perched next to the professional shop, Point Grey has the classic qualities that makes a golf course a thrill to play, time and again. It offers the maturity that only comes with a course that has been part of the Vancouver landscape for nearly 100 years, but it remains current with the times, as indicated by its success as a venue for the Mackenzie Tour/PGA Tour Financial.
“I love how it challenges you off the tee,” says Ryan Williams, the club’s touring professional who plays on the Mackenzie Tour. “You need to think your way through the course with good strategy. It makes you use a lot of different clubs off the tee and insists you hit the proper shots to match the hole.”
Easily walked, with majestic scenery ranging from the distant mountains to the magnificent Fraser River, for almost a century golfers have enjoyed their strolls around a course that cannot be defined by time. Point Grey isn’t a course that will gobble up golf balls, making it fun for male and female, casual and low-handicap players alike. But that doesn’t mean it is a pushover. Play from tees appropriate to your abilities—and with yardages ranging from more than 6,800 yards to the forward tees at 5,400 yards, every golfer will find their place.
The 18th captures the essence of the club. Beyond the final hole, golfers can be found working on the putting green, while others sit on the clubhouse patio and take in the stunning scene. All of this goes into creating a great club.
“The club itself is great, which is the key,” says Williams. “It has a solid membership with a lot of enthusiasm. Just a really fun place to be around even if you’re not golfing.”
“Point Grey is a golf course I really like. It’s a very old school, tree-lined golf course, but gives you options from off the fairways while still making it hard to make par. I like those traits in a golf course.”
