Chilliwack Golf Club
Confused, Hear me out!
I've never really been able to figure out what the presumed hype is about CGC or why the dedication to the property from locals. I've played here several times and from what I can see it's a baby boomer crowd that got involved a while ago and has not left. The course itself I find very boring. Not a lot of character and there is no real punishment for hitting a bad shots, it's just in the next fairway and you probably still have a good shot at the green. Hole after hole seem very similar. Flat and slight dog leg.
Club house, pro shop and every other building on the property are very old, run down and have moth balls type feel to them. Feels like walking into a Royal Canadian Legion.
Driving range is average at best.
Wind is present a lot of the time which becomes annoying.
NOW, what I can't figure out for the life of me is their higher price tag for what this course is and offers. I have no problem paying hundred on a green fee but for similar price I can go play any of the Whistler courses, Northview, Furry Creek and many others. $90+ the other day with cart. I do not think this course should be over $59 with cart. This is comparing the overall course experience with those in the area (Sandpiper, The Falls, even Cultus. These all have tremendous Views, Character and give you an alive feeling and energy when on their properties)
I think that if they have the membership money to pay for upgrades they need to do it fast because I don't believe it's an attractive facility for younger adults looking to get memberships, do business, entertain and so on. This course will fail as baby boomers die off unless some major changes are made to the property.
Having said all that, you can review any of my other reviews, they are 99% positive and upbeat. I've lived in Chilliwack for 18 years and just can't figure this one out. Sorry guys.

golfed today,april 6, 2014, at 1:16 pm. course was great, game was good, staf was great. my husband and I were just a bit taken back when one of the three some, in front of us said, as we were waiting to tee off., I don't mean to sound ______, but its going to be slow, their's 3 females ahead of us. Nice, being as I am a female sitting there waiting to golf. It surprised me to have such etiquette as this on such a classy golf course. as it turned out all 3 were hackers themselves1

Luck of the Irish
I'm from vancouver , Burnaby to be exact , I drove my mother out to Sardis to visit with school girl friend from days gone by! I found myself with several hrs on my hands while they visited, so the obvious choice was too get out on the links ! I discovered " chilliwack golf club while scrolling through golf now for a available tee time, I teed on my own @12:12 and played a very playable golf course, that was exceptionally dry considering two weeks prior there was a foot of snow, with carnage of trees and branches all scattered throughout the course! I found the greens to be quite pure , with lots of tree lined fairways , and creeks meandering through several holes! Staff was very friendly , courteous and helpful as well as greens crew staff that took the time wave or say hi along the way! I would recommend chilliwack golf & country club for a great relaxing fair test of golf and a truly memorable experience !

Fast and Challenging
The weather was decent, with a little forecasted rain. The days prior brought a lot of rain so I was uncertain what the condition of the course would be like. To my surprise the course was in great shape, greens were flat and true and the fairways firm. For an early December round I was incredibly happy with the condition.

Excellent golf facility
CGCC includes range balls with your green fees which is a smart idea. The range and warm up area is excellent.
The course played really well considering the time of year (late November). Greens were in good shape and pace of play was good. Easy walking course but challenging pin placements today.
If you keep it in play you can score pretty well. Don't hit the driver on every hole when an iron or fairway wood will do.

An easy course to walk.
A nice flat course. Water comes into play on about 1/3rd of the holes. There are enough challenging holes to make you work for your pars. Very much a middle of the road course.
