SEAPARC Reopens DeMamiel Creek Golf Course

Jun 20, 2016

Victoria, BC– The Sooke and Electoral Area Park and Recreation Commission (SEAPARC) is celebrating the grand re-opening of the DeMamiel Creek Golf Course on July 5 with a community celebration.

Community members are invited to a complimentary BBQ at 12pm. Those interested in golfing are required to book and pay for tee times by phoning SEAPARC Reception at 250.642.8000, or visiting SEAPARC Leisure Complex at 2168 Phillips Road.

Located just 35 minutes from Victoria in Sooke, BC, the DeMamiel Creek Golf Course is a nine-hole Executive Par 3 Course for all skills and abilities. Situated in a quiet tree lined setting, the course will provide a challenge for beginners and the more experienced golfer.

On April 30, 2016 residents of the District of Sooke and the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area voted in favour of purchasing land for the future development and enhancement of recreation services. It was decided the golf course will open for the coming season to benefit the community and region.

The SEAPARC Leisure Complex currently houses a three-pool aquatic centre, ice rink, multi-purpose/fitness space, boardroom, sports field, bike park and skate park. Through its strategic planning process, the commission identified the acquisition of additional lands for long-term growth and expansion as well as the creation of an exercise and weight room facility as their top priorities.

SEAPARC is a partnership of the municipality of Sooke and western communities in the JDF Electoral Area (Port Renfrew, Otter Point, Shirley, Jordan River and East Sooke). The commission serves the residents of these areas. Funding for the commission comes from property taxes and user fees.
