The First Chemainus Golf Course

Sport’s roots in the region go back to 1926

The original Chemainus Golf Course was officially opened May 25, 1926.

The course was located on several acres of rough pasture land on Dodd’s Farm at the end of Chapman Road in North Chemainus.

It was leased year-to-year for that purpose.

The Chemainus Valley Museum contains many interesting displays and stories about the area’s rich history.

The museum is located at 9799 Waterwheel Cres. It’s open Tuesday through Sunday during the summer from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
