The Stanley Park Pitch and Putt Golf Course is located amidst the Ted and Mary Grieg Rhododendron Garden on the south-east end of the park and is open year round. Visitors to the park and locals come throughout the day to test out their skills on eighteen holes ranging from 40-100 yards (a Par 3 course).
The Pitch and Putt Course is open from morning to dusk - golfers can bring their own equipment or rent for an additional fee - which includes putter, pitching wedge, ball and tee - as two hours before closing is the cut off time for rentals which are offered throughout the day for a small fee.
The course winds its way through Stanley Park's famous forests just off the edge of the city. The holes are lined with vegetation and carefully trimmed trees, surrounding golfers with the natural beauty of the park which includes handicaps such as curious squirrels and raccoons.
On the grass walkway between the Pitch and Putt and the Fish House restaurant in Stanley Park there is putting green in the summer from late June to early September offering golfers additional areas of interest in the quest to improve.
No matter age or skill level, the Stanley Park Pitch and Putt is a fun and exhilarating experience for families, groups or even on your own to improve your game before heading out to Vancouver's many larger golf courses.
