Storey Creek Golf
Club in Campbell River is the best kept golf secret on Vancouver Island.
Nestled amongst dense forest and running alongside pristine marshland,
the Storey Creek Golf Club is a shining example of what all golf courses
should offer: a symphony of superb holes and spectacular natural scenery.
At Storey Creek
it is not uncommon to share the fairways with families of deer,
or see groups of bald eagles flying overhead. If you can though,
you will have to try and block that out, because Storey Creek is
a fantastic test of your golfing abilities!
par threes to awe-inspiring par fives, Storey Creek will call on
every shot in your game, and every club in your bag. No hole is
perhaps more daunting though than the sublime thirteenth. A staggering
561-yard dogleg right, this hole commands you to "grip it and rip
it" if you have any fantasies about an eagle. Be careful though,
the entire right side of the fairway is water.
Any errant drives
will quickly turn par into a great score. A full fairway wood is
required for your second shot if you want to try and reach the well-guarded
and elevated green. If that shot isnít in your bag, lay-up and let
your short game do the work. With a choice of four tee blocks throughout
the course, the degree of challenge at Storey Creek is up to you.
