Beban Park Golf Centre is located at 2280 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, just beyond the tennis courts in the southeast corner of Beban Park. This course opened in 1999 and it's currently privately operated (Nanaimo Parks, Recreation & Culture which runs many of the nearby facilities is not involved).
This golf course is 11 holes with the longest hole measuring 90 yards. The whole course totals 833 yards. It's perfect for the beginner or anyone wanting to improve their short game. This is probably the best place to learn to golf around Nanaimo and lessons by certified instructors are available for all levels and ages.
In 2011 the Beban Park Golf Centre opened a full size driving range 320 yards long with 21 mats, of which six are covered stalls. They also have a grass hitting area, short game practice area for pitching and chipping, a sand trap, and a putting green.
Summer rates for one round are $12.50 for an adult, $8.75 for a youth (seven to 14), $5 for a child (six and under), and $5 for a second round. Discount passes are available. Use of the driving range costs $3.57 for a small bucket or $7.14 for a large bucket (all prices plus HST). Pitch and putt differs from regular golf in that only one iron and a putter may be used. It costs $2 to rent a wood and $1 for an iron or a putter.
