Quilchena Golf & Country Club is an expression of the way members embrace life

Situated on the saltwater edge of Lulu Island in the delta of one of North America’s most famous rivers, surrounded by nature and history yet close to all the finest modern amenities, Quilchena is the essence of today’s lifestyle. Minutes from the world’s doorway, Vancouver International Airport; within view of one of the world’s most cosmopolitan and sophisticated cities, Vancouver; and just a brief scenic drive to the historic fishing village of Steveston; Quilchena is life fully realized.

The unrivalled golf course, clubhouse, restaurants, and service at Quilchena are at the very heart of the experience. However, the attractions and opportunities so close at hand enrich and expand the entire Quilchena lifestyle.

Bordered by a nature preserve and dyke along the coastline, Quilchena is barely minutes from the finest indoor fitness and wellness centre, the Richmond Oval, created for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. The $178 million Oval is now universally acknowledged as the standard for public access recreation, fitness, sports injury diagnostics and healing, and environmental friendliness.

A collection of more than a dozen islands in the delta where the mighty Fraser River meets the ocean, Richmond was named by an Australian settler after a farm in her homeland. It was incorporated as a municipality in 1879 – just 46 years before the original Quilchena Golf & Country Club was formed, and seven years before Vancouver became a city – and from that day forward has welcomed visitors and new neighbours from every corner of the globe. One of the very special places in the area where Sea Island (home to the Vancouver International Airport), Lulu Island (home to Quilchena and most of Richmond), and the Fraser River meet the sea is Steveston, the historic fishing village just minutes south of Quilchena.

Strolling the wharf past the fishing boats, the boardwalk and its restaurants, the artisan shops, and the heritage museum, it is easy to think back to the days of William Herbert Steves and his 1880 dream of creating a major seaport of the Pacific Northwest.

Mission accomplished.
