Being more familiar with the local pitch & putt courses than anything else, over the last few months I’ve had the chance to branch out and explore Fraserview Golf Course, one of three courses run by Vancouver Parks Golf.

In 2004 all three courses received designation as Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuaries recognizing their high environmental standards. Birds chirping and dive-bombing worms, squirrels scurrying, and curious (but harmless) coyotes are on the prowl among native plant species and thick groves of trees.
Vancouver Parks Golf has also recently announced a partnership with the Vancouver Golf Tour and will be hosting the Vancouver City Open this September. They have also committed to running The First Tee program along with the Vancouver YMCA. This is the first of its kind in Western Canada that helps get children and youth involved with golf.
In order to get more local out on the links this season (which will hopefully dry out nicely toward the end of the month) Vancouver Parks Golf has kindly offered up a round of golf at Fraserview for one lucky Miss604.com reader and three friends. I’m launching the contest today in order to build some momentum for Father’s Day as I’m thinking this could make a great gift.
Here’s how to enter to win a day of golf for four at Fraserview:
I will draw a winner at random from all entries in one week, on June 11th.
Update Thank you to everyone for entering the contest. I have drawn a winner at random and it’s Tricia (comment on June 6th), congratulations! Hopefully you can all have the chance to get out to a Vancouver Parks Golf course this summer regardless.
