The Golf Course
Created in 1948, the par 71/73 Mount Brenton Golf Course is located in the scenic, historic town of Chemainus, Canada’s Mural Capital. With shaded fairways flanked by towering firs, the course also features willow, hemlock, maple, scotch and ponderosa pine, sequoia, cedar, dogwood and giant cottonwood. A challenge for every level of golfer, there are plenty of creeks to hurdle and ponds to circumvent. Maintained by an excellent grounds crew the fairways are lush, the greens are true and the sand is deep. An extensive drainage system also makes Mount Brenton one of the most playable golf courses year round on Vancouver Island. Book a tee time today and come and see for yourself.
Julie’s Canteen on the Green is now open for business from 11 am to 6 pm daily, 250 324 0577. Chef Julie wants to thank members for their support during the Canteen’s start up and staff training period. Oh yes, and the current Covid crisis. She adds that the takeout sandwich containers have arrived, so if you are making the turn, or want a sandwich to take out on the course because you are hungry and/or running late, call the Canteen and order ahead.
Sandwiches are $7.95 (and look great). You can choose from egg salad, smoked turkey and cheese as well as ham and cheese.
