History

The Vancouver Golf Club is renowned as one of the eminent golf clubs in Canada and North America and has been around for over a hundred years. The five-man team of Philip Brooks, Ewen Robertson, Fred Furnival, James Duncan and John Brown founded the club. They bought a property that was initially a 200-acre sheep farm in Coquitlam on the west side of Blue Mountain. After many months, the course was ready and on June 17, 1912, the club was named The Vancouver Golf and Country Club. In 1942, it was renamed the Vancouver Golf Club. Location The Vancouver Golf Club is located just 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver. It is approximately 27 km from Vancouver International Airport.

    We had an amazing wedding at Vancouver Golf Club! We are so happy we chose it as our venue!
    Graham was extremely helpful leading up to the wedding and was great to work with. The staff that worked that evening were also very kind.
    The food was also amazing!! Almost every guest commented on how great the food was and how much of a selection there was (we did the grand buffet).
    I would highly recommend VGC to anyone considering to have their wedding there!

    The Best Wedding Venue in Town


    The best wedding venue in town!

    I don't even know where to begin! We are SO thankful we decided to have our wedding at the Vancouver Golf Club. Everything was absolutely perfect! Graham (our coordinator) was so easy to work with, and very responsive to any questions that came up throughout the planning process. The location is so convenient and there are some great spots for taking photos too! We loved that we were able to do our photos there, as this saved us time on the day, resulting in more time to spend with our friends and family!

    Kenny (The banquet supervisor on the day) was also an absolute pleasure to work with. He was so friendly, and accommodating. The bartender and all the other staff on the night were all incredible. They really have a great team of people at this venue.

    Last but definitely not least - the FOOD! Oh my goodness, we are still getting compliments at how incredible the meal was. Please give our compliments to the chef. It was absolutely delicious!

    We will forever be grateful we chose this venue!

    Beautiful venue, very well run wedding day

    We had an amazing wedding at Vancouver Golf Club. Everything ran smoothly on our wedding day, and they were flexible with our schedule as we were running late for dinner. Graham our coordinator was very responsive with all our questions. The food was amazing, and all our guests were talking about the roast beef.
