For some budget-priced golfing, try the pleasant Pryde Vista Golf Club, 155 Pryde Avenue, Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. This public golf course charges green fees of $23 (seniors $22) for the nine holes.

Pryde Vista opened in 1989 alongside the scenic Buttertubs Marsh with good views of Mount Benson from the fairways. Players are not allowed to enter the marsh or adjacent Millstone River to retrieve balls and must keep shirt and shoes on. It's a good place for newbie golfers to get a feel for the game.

To get to the Pryde Vista Golf Club turn south off Bowen Road on Pryde Avenue a bit west of the popular Quarterway Pub (a former club house of the old Nanaimo Golf Club). The entrance to the Pryde Vista Golf Club is at the end of the street on the right.
