Seniors tee off at DeMamiel Creek Golf Course

The nine-hole golf course is extending its seniors discount days from two to five days per week

The DeMamiel Creek Golf Course has an offer senior golfers will find hard to pass up.

The nine-hole golf course is extending its seniors discount days from two to five days per week.

“The rate currently offered at Sooke’s DeMamiel Creek Golf Course for Mondays and Wednesdays is so popular that it’s hoped that by offering the discount to golfers 60 years and older during weekdays, the volume will spread out,” said SEAPARC chair Mike Hicks.

Senior golfers pay $15 for 18 holes from Monday to Friday.

SEAPARC bought the privately owned DeMamiel Creek Golf Course last year for $1 million, with a plan to use the 10 hectares of land to develop future playing fields, but until those fields are needed and to recoup some costs, the recreation commission decided to operate the golf course.

Besides more senior golfers hitting the local links this year, schools are also bringing classes to the course for their golfing programs.

“The course is in beautiful shape, all systems are go and it is tremendous to see the great enthusiasm and support from the seniors, schools and residents throughout the Capital Region,” Hicks said.

For more information on the DeMamiel Creek Golf Course, please call SEAPARC at 250-642-8000.
