The nine-hole

Tee up for family golfing fun at Henderson

Niine-hole par 3 course is tucked into the forested setting next to the Henderson rec centre

Oak Bay is home to two of the city’s premier golf facilities in Uplands and Victoria golf, but for something a little more family friendly – and a great way to practice your short game – there’s the golf course at Henderson Park.

The nine-hole par 3 course is tucked into the forested setting next to the Henderson rec centre, and while it’s ideal for beginners, it also provides a challenge for more experience golfers who want to practice their short game.

The course is open seasonally from March through late November, and players are expected to adhere to posted rules of play and golf etiquette.

Tee-offs are first come-first served, beginning at 8 a.m. in summer and running through dusk (start times also adjust with the time of year).

In addition to regular play, the course offers group lessons, private lessons, group bookings, birthday parties, specials and season passes.

Henderson is also home to a variety of summer camp programs for budding enthusiasts.

Coming up this month, families can check out the course’s Father’s Day special, when dads play for free from 9 a.m. to noon.

Golfers are invited to post photos from the Henderson Par 3 Golf Course to Instagram @henderson_par_3 and #HendersonPar3 for a chance to win monthly prizes.

A Seniors Community Park circles the perimeter of the golf course and includes a 1.1km chip trail popular with walkers and joggers, in addition to a 14-piece outdoor fitness circuit and six fitness stations. The equipment is designed for adults age 55-plus but can be enjoyed by users of all ages and abilities.

Learn more at oakbay.ca or stop by Henderson rec centre at 2291 Cedar Hill X Rd.
