Guide to Squamish Golf Courses
Golf season has begun so time to dust off the ol' clubs and hit the links! Here’s a breakdown for planning your next Squamish golf adventure.

Located just 15 minutes south of downtown Squamish, Furry Creek is a stunning course that is known for having some of the most scenic fairways in British Columbia. Nestled in the Sea to Sky with a towering mountain on one side and sparkling Howe Sound on the other, this spot allows you to play the game in a unique ecosystem that features forced carries and layups across vast ravines, undulating greens, blind tee shots, uphill, downhill and sidehill lies.
Designed by renowned golf course architect Robert Muir Graves, Furry Creek is his sole Canadian venue. From their signature 14th hole located right on the shores of Howe Sound (you might recognize it from a famous scene in the movie Happy Gilmore) to the 7th hole placed over 300 feet above sea level, the course has twists and turns through rainforest and ravines with over 6000 yards of soul-testing golf adventure that you will never forget.
