Pheasant Glen Golf Resort

What was once a ‘great short golf course’ called Glengarry Golf Links in charming Qualicum Beach, has re-emerged as Pheasant Glen Golf Resort.  Its’ name change reflects the monumental changes that have taken place over the past 4 years: the golf course is 1600 yards longer from the back tees, 5 strokes harder and is a terrific combination of brawn and finesse. The final phase of new holes in the early Spring has completed the transformation from a par 67 mid length golf course to a par 72 destination golf facility and entrenching Pheasant Glen on the “must-play” list for golfers living on or visiting the Island. Pheasant Glen is also home to the renowned Brent Morrison Golf Academy. A new clubhouse, accommodation, spa, fitness centre and pool are also in the plans for Pheasant Glen.
