Good advice above, and I will throw in a couple:

 

Point Roberts is fantastic golf.

Northview Ridge is a good track, and hosted the GVO.

Semi ah moo and Loomis Trail are sister courses in Wa that are well worth the trip.

Have fun...some great golf out our way.

 

BTW, just played Bear Mountain last week. Drop dead gorgeous place to play. The course is good, not great, but spectacular to look at.

Don't miss it.

Seeing how I live in the Vancouver area, i think i can contribute to his discussion. It really all depends on what type of course you want to play, what connections you have, and how much you're willing to pay ;) . (for me I don't have the privilege to play them whenever I want since I'm only a junior) Alot of courses were already mentioned above. Some courses that are worth playing are well...mainly all the private ones :crazy: like Capilano, Marine Drive, Point Grey, Richmond, Vancouver Club, Beach Grove, Quilchena and Shaughnessy (Where they had the Canandian Open) are all fantastic courses...but since they're private you might have a hard time getting onto the course.

 

Westwood Plateau as PMAN said is a nice course, I believe it won some award a few years back, its one of the better semi-private courses, and its not too far from the city (Vancouver) as lets say Whistler. Although its not outstanding, it's still a great course. Another local course is Mayfair Lakes, it's more of an open links style course with usually harsh winds and a toooon of water, a great challenge. Then there's Morgan Creek which is also a great course as well. One course which you should consider is Northview, it was host to the GVO, if you do play it, make sure you play the Ridge Course (as opposed to the Canal).

 

Also, Dougly hit the nail right on the head with courses like Point Roberts (which is just over the Canada/USA border), Bear Mountain, Loomis Trial, and Semiahmoo, hell might as well throw Swan-E-Set in there too.

 

As for Whistler (you should definitely go to Whistler if you love skiing), Big Sky, Nickalaus North, Whistler and such are all great courses too that you should try. As for the Okanagan, you should strongly look at Predator Ridge, which always seems to please. Fairview Mountain, Gallagher Canyon, and the Harvest are all courses that you should play while you're up there (hey, you said there werent any limits :yahoo: ) In the Koots, I also here St Eugene Mission is a good track as well.

 

And as for the Rockies, definitely give Kananaskis a try as its one of North America's top 25 courses, and Jasper Park which was ranked by Score Golf Magazine as one of the top 10 courses in the country.

 

If you have any thoughts or questions just feel free to pm me, have fun on your trip!
