Although Arnold Palmer designed both of the 18-hole championship courses at Northview Golf & Country Club, both are completely unique from one another. The Ridge Course is more heavily wooded than the Florida-style Canal Course and it also has a more undulating landscape. Both golf courses share a beautiful landscape and stunning mountain views. Golfers can often see one or both of the Bald Eagles that call the courses home. While water comes into play more often on the Canal Course there are still streams that meander through the lake-strewn Ridge Course. The signature hole is the par-5 finishing hole. This lengthy hole, which measures 561 yards, has a double fairway that offers either a short dangerous route with an opportunity to reach the semi-island green in two shots or a much longer but safer three-shot option.
Northview Golf & Country Club boasts two 18-hole championship courses designed by Arnold Palmer. The club hosts the Air Canada Championship, formerly the Greater Vancouver Open, every year. The courses showcase the wide range of Palmer's design capabilities by being completely different from one another. The Florida-style Canal Course features more water than the heavily wooded Ridge Course. Being more open, it is also more subject to the prevailing winds. The layout featuring wide fairways and undulating greens is reminiscent of traditional links courses. Both the Ridge and Canal share the same stunning mountain views. There are also two Bald Eagles that call the golf courses home. The Canal's signature hole is the par-3 penultimate hole. This tricky hole has a shallow green that is not only surrounded by water on three sides there are also bunkers to watch out for.
