For fun and value try Mulligans Golf Course in Courtenay , B.C.

by Keith and Heather Nicol
The practice putting green is popular
     Golf is popular in the Comox Valley with many courses to test your skills but if you want to try a fine little course that allows you to play 9 holes for less than $10 then check out Mulligans Golf Course. They offer an executive course which means there are mostly par 3’s with some par 4’s and the longest hole is 337 yards. Total length from the blue tees is 1763 yards which is about a mile so it is also easy to walk for many people from younger children to older adults. But just because it is short doesn’t mean it is easy. There is some water on the course and also sand traps so depending on where the pin is placed making par can be a real challenge. The course also gives scenic views of the Beaufort Range of Mountains and has been landscaped to create undulations and mounds which add to the layout of the course. Of course with the lack of rain this summer the fairways were looking a bit brown but the greens were in great shape when we played the course on August 7.

  In addition to a small clubhouse there is a driving range and a putting green. The driving range is another bargain since a bucket of balls is just $1.50! Regular green fees are $11 but before 8 am and after 4 pm it is just $8.00 to play 9 holes! Mulligans is located right outside of Courtenay and it took us about 90 minutes to play 9 holes. For more information see:  or phone 250-338-2440. This course is ideal for families or friends wanting to meet for a couple of hours of golf. 
There are several small ponds which add difficulty to the course
