About Capilano Golf and Country Club
Capilano is a private 18-hole facility located in beautiful British Columbia. Constructed in 1938 by esteemed Canadian golf course architect Stanley Thompson, Capilano is continually ranked in the top 10 golf courses in Canada by Score Golf Magazine and ranked in the top 100 golf courses in the world outside the United States by Golf Digest. The golf course was voted the #1 golf course in Canada for 2018 at the World Golf Awards.

A new staff Maintenance Facility was constructed in 2011, and the construction of a new Fleet Maintenance Facility was completed in early 2017. The club most recently undertook a full greenside bunker renovation this season which included the installation of Better Billy Bunker liner in 39 bunkers.
