Enjoying the great outdoors in British Columbia can be made much easier with a set of golf clubs, with a bit of patience and without any excuse. However, should you need an excuse or two, here are a few favourites:

– Golf is the game of a lifetime

– Golf is exercise and is social

– Golf is a stress reliever and very therapeutic

– Golf gets us up close and personal to nature

– Golf allows us to be competitive

– Golf allows players of all ages and all levels of competency

– Golf builds and showcases character

Scenic views, lush greenery and manicured freeways draw tens of thousands every year to the sport in B.C.

Located in stunning settings in Pitt Meadows and Chilliwack, golf courses owned by Aquilini Properties are teaming up to offer members a unique opportunity to tee off at both locations.

The Golden Eagle Golf Club is situated among the mountains in Pitt Meadows, while The Falls Golf Club is nestled at the foothills of Mount Cheam in Chilliwack and offers panoramic views of the Fraser Valley.

Both golf properties offer experiences that can now be enjoyed with one membership.

“The location of the two properties offers a unique 54-hole membership experience,” says Jamie Baxter, vice-president of golf.

The Golden Eagle Golf Club has two championship golf courses with 36 fun and challenging holes split between the north and south golf courses.

The Falls, which has a challenging and scenic layout, has been praised by Golf Canada, which says, “The challenge and scenery of the Falls has earned it a reputation amongst locals as one of B.C.’s best-kept secrets.”

With spectacular views at both properties, Golden Eagle is flat and easily walkable, while The Falls has an elevation of 750 feet and a dramatic landscape that will test all levels of golf.

New in 2016, membership now includes these two properties, with 54 holes of golf, in one membership fee, with your power cart included at The Falls due to the rolling terrain with natural rock outcroppings and tall cedars.

Membership starts at $99 a month and includes a 14-day advance tee time booking, 20 per cent off golf shop apparel, 20 per cent off guest green fees and 10 per cent off food purchases, Golf Canada handicap tracking and other benefits.
