Why Join Uplands

Location

Uplands Golf Club is one of only four semi-private golf clubs in the Capital Region and is situated on 120 scenic acres adjacent to the University of Victoria. Just 10 minutes from downtown Victoria, it is also readily accessible from all of Greater Victoria.

The Golf Experience

A wonderful example of parkland golf, Uplands provides an enjoyable and challenging golf experience for all levels of player.

With gentle fairway undulations, and no steep hills or valleys to navigate, this is a course that lends itself to walking and an 18 hole game is often played in 4 hours or less.

Uplands Golf Club is much more than golf.  It’s about the people!  Ask anyone who plays the course and they will tell you about the friendly, welcoming atmosphere, and the great relationships they have made through their Uplands membership.  See the testimonials page.
