Golf Course Houses and Townhomes
Retire and Play Golf Year-Round on Vancouver Island
Many Canadians dream of the day they retire and play golf every day in an island paradise. Driving their golf cart from their home directly onto the golf course to tee off at sunrise while overlooking the ocean sounds impressive, but what if you didn't have to leave Canada to have this privilege? Moving to Vancouver Island makes this dream a reality for thousands of retirees every year.
After your kids have grown and you've retired, relocating and downsizing in one of Vancouver Islands' many golf communities found in Nanaimo, Nanoose, Parksville, and Qualicum Beach is a choice many retirees make every year. Retirees are coming here due to the mild temperatures, ocean views, and the opportunity to golf all year.
