Vancouver Island Golf Consortium is Paying Attention to Rising Fuel Costs

17th July, 2008
Soaring fuel costs may be affecting tourism around the province, however, a pro-active golf consortium on Vancouver Island says you don’t have to stay home this summer! Golf Vancouver Island is the first and only golf consortium in the province to offer a gas subsidy to their golfing customers.

Golfing couples will receive a $50 gas card; foursomes will receive a $100 gas card; and larger groups are eligible for gas cards up to $250 with the purchase of a Golf Vancouver Island Golf Package.

Golf Vancouver Island Representative Patrick Meagher encourages Island residents to look at the multiple golf getaway options right here on Vancouver Island. Victoria residents can take a getaway to the Cowichan Valley, Parksville and Courtenay/Campbell River, and vice versa! Golf getaway options abound, with 2 nights & 2 rounds of golf starting at just $275 per person!
