Beautiful setting a bit wet but quite nice for late October.

In summer months would be perfect.

Fantastic conditions for an late summer round

Considering the hard rain lately, the course was in spectacular shape. Having been pu ched recently too the greens are starting g to run faster again making putting more intuitive. I was disappointed to see the hot dog shack closed today though, would have loved a dog and beer at the turn and a chocolate bar from the pro shop just doesn't cut it.

All in all a minor complaint considering the restaurant is still open. Will try to get back again this week. If the weather holds off.

Nicely Manicured

Although it was a cold somewhat rainy day, we had a really nice time. The course was in excellent condition and well looked after. The greens were very fast and in great shape. We look forward to playing there again, when the temperature is more moderate.
The off-course amenities were not really open due to the Covid protocols, so we did not try the restaurant, but have eaten there before and it was very nice.
It is a bit of a drive for us to get to the course, about an hour each way, but we feel it is worth it, for a nice change of pace for us old-timers.

very wet/need more drainage done

played after some rain and course very wet/soggy/muddy! Good thing for mudders! Plugged golf balls/lost golf balls! Need to spend some $$ on improving draingage to get some of the water off the course! Maintenance people out on course with mowers appeared to be cutting lots of leaves in several different locations? Frost delay as well so 30 minute delay to our scheduled tee-off and barely got 18 holes finished!

Rough round

The course conditions and weather were as expected but the pace of play was awful for a weekday. We waited on every hole for the group in front of us and there was nobody in front of them after the second hole. They never considered letting our threesome through and there were no course attendants anywhere all day. I finally had to phone the pro shop after one of them hit our tee shot back at us on the 15th hole (wasn't close to them). A course employee came out and explained the process of letting us play through on the 16th hole. We thought we were clear of them but on the 18th hole they shot a ball in our direction from the 17th tee - which was 90 degrees from their green. A roaming course attendant might have prevented trouble but some people shouldn't be allowed out on a course.

decent value

probably unfair to rate as played shortly after aeration, but greens were running at about 4. putting a waste of time. However the layout was good. Scenic, lots of trees, many interesting doglegs, but several holes kinda straight and dull on front nine. Requires strategy rather than length. Will probably play it again at different time.

Great course

I really enjoyed my round at Alberni Golf Course. It is an older style course with lots of character. it has a great layout. Not the easiest course with lots of large trees, some sand, and water. I would definitely recommend checking this course out if you haven't yet.

WONDERFUL COURSE

As always, Alberni Golf Course is in excellent condition. We played in the early afternoon, so the pace of play was fast. I have always enjoyed the views provided by this location. Although it is a 110 km drive for me, I will be back. A must play course on Vancouver Island.
