The Stanley Park Pitch and Putt Golf Course is a 1200 yard, 18 hole, par 54 golf course in Stanley Park.
Holes range from 40 yards to 100 yards and are all par 3.
It is probably one of the most picturesque golf courses you will ever play. There are many tall mature trees throughout the course and the course is surrounded by a huge world class Rhododendron garden.
The Stanley Park Pitch n Putt Golf Course is one of 3 Pitch and Putt golf courses in Vancouver. The others being Queen Elizabeth Park and Rupert Park Pitch and Putt golf courses. Both The Rupert Park and Queen Elizabeth golf courses are both longer and more difficult than Stanley Park. Rupert Park has all raised greens, narrow fairways and water features. Queen Elizabeth has limited irrigation so gets really dry in the summer and has a mix of holes with generally wider fairways.
You can buy some cold drinks and snacks at the clubhouse. &bnsp;They also sell golf balls and other golf accessories such as tees. You can also rent clubs here.
October 15, 2022: This past week the greens were aerated and sanded. This means that the greens are very sandy. Bring a towel to clean your balls and clubs.
October 13, 2022: We played the Queen Elizabeth Park Pitch and Putt today. The 18th hole is closed because the netting behind it was burned along with a building in a fire. The course was ok. The greens were recently aerated and sanded so were not that great.
October 12, 2022: We played the Rupert Park Pitch and Putt today. Parts of the front nine are muddy. The greens were not in great shape. There are a lot of leaves on the course so we lost a few balls. Even yellow balls were hard to find with many yellow leaves. Orange balls are probably the best.

You are required to have at least 2 clubs per person. One club must be a putter and one club must be an iron. At minimum, we would say that you need a 9 iron and a putter. We usually like to golf with a pitching wedge as well for the short chips. A really good golfer can play with a pitching wedge and putter.
To get a good score in Pitch and Putt golf, a good strategy is to try to get your tee shot on the green, then try to 2 putt to get par. Hopefully, you will get some opportunities for birdies.
