Better known for its covered and floodlit driving range is the Eaglequest Golf Centre, 1601 Thatcher Road, in South Wellington on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The nine-hole golf course winds around the driving range's high fence adjacent to the busy Trans-Canada Highway. Eaglequest Nanaimo is part of a chain of six Canadian golf facilities and shouldn't be confused with the much more upscale Eaglecrest Golf Club in Qualicum Beach, BC.
What Eaglequest Nanaimo has going for it is the price: Green fees are only $16 for the nine holes. El cheapo players take note: Any driving range balls found on the course are the property of Eaglequest and must be returned. Each player must also have their own set of clubs and sharing a set within a group is not allowed.
To reach Eaglequest turn inland off the Trans-Canada Highway at Morden Road, then left on South Wellington Road to Thatcher Road. For more information call 1-250-754-1325.
