But have you thought of playing some golf? Victoria has some great golf courses but what if you don’t want to play a full round? A full round of golf can cost a lot of money and take up to 5 hours to play so playing a full round might not be a fun idea if you are just starting out. If this is you I suggest going to a driving range for to see if you like the game. Most ranges in town charge about $8 dollars for 60 balls. So it’s a good start. Here is a our list of best driving ranges in Victoria BC for you to start on.
The range at Bear Mountain is wide open, has lots of areas to hit from so I think it’s one of the best. You don’t have to worry about spraying your ball offline and going into someones yard of the bushes. It’s a grass driving range and the turf quality is pretty good. This gives you feedback for how you are hitting your shots and prepares you for the golf course.
Another grass range that’s wide open is out at Olympic View. It doesn’t have as much hitting area as Bear Mountain but there is still plenty of room. The grass quality is pretty good but can be quite sandy.
The best driving range in the city that is off mats is out at Cordova Bay. It’s not as long as the Bear and Olympic View. This isn’t going to be an issue for most golfers though and the main thing is it’s wide open. There are probably about 30 hitting stalls which are undercover which is great if you are looking for something to do when it rains.
So there you have it, the three best driving ranges in Victoria. If you like the range and need some help figuring out your swing, check out our list of best golf instructors list.
