Vancouver Golf Club was established in 1911, by a group of avid British golfers, making it one of the oldest golf clubs in the nation. It started out as the British Columbia Golf Club, but was later renamed Vancouver Golf Club in 1942. Located approximately 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) to the west of Vancouver, this is one of the most prestigious clubs. The 18-hole course offers the professional golfer an exhilarating game. The grounds can also be rented out for private celebrations.
