In Volume 3 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that:
“With magnificent views across the Strait of Juan de Fuca toward the Olympic Mountains, this tightly packed course in the city’s most fashionable suburb offers much more than the 6000 yards on the scorecard would suggest. The flavor of golf is all here, with abundant gorse and broom in brilliant yellow bloom each spring, occasional outcrops of rock on the holes nearest the coast, and wild small-scale contouring in greens like the 3rd and 7th. However, the city street that bisects the course and the lack of acreage makes it quite dangerous in spots, and at times the routing feels hemmed in, with two sets of back-to-back par-3 holes. It’s a great place to enjoy a vacation round, as long as there’s not too much crossfire.”
Victoria Golf Club in Canada received a score of 5 out of 10 from Tom Doak, and scores of 6 out of 10 from two of his co-authors.
