New personnel making big improvements at Glacier Greens Golf Club in Comox

CFB Comox produces some of the country’s top military golfers, a scenario helped by having Glacier Greens Golf Club located on the base. But did you know the public is welcome to play and use the facilities at this picturesque, well-treed club situated next to the air strip?

Michael Newton, who took over as General Manager last fall, says many civilians play here on a regular basis, attracted by the quality of the golf experience. Michael has worked at some of Canada’s top golfing facilities and is excited about the opportunity to take Glacier Greens to the next level.

“This property is an exceptional track for golf; it’s a shotmaker’s golf course and has all the characteristics that create a golf experience that never gets old. Glacier Greens has elevation change, mountain views and vistas, large trees, privacy and water. Every hole is different – the property really speaks for itself. With an increased investment in golf course conditioning, there will be no better valued golf experience in the Comox Valley.”

New pros part of club upgrades

If you haven’t played Glacier Greens in a while, you’ll find Jesse Moussa and wife Nadine Ash around the newly renovated Pro Shop – both are known in Comox Valley golf circles. CPGA Class A professional Moussa has come on board as head pro, while former LPGA tour player and longtime instructor Ash is the club’s new teaching professional.

“Nadine is looking to boost our women’s and junior golf programs, and with the introduction of new technologies we will be able to help our members and the public refine their golf swings using a data-based approach” Newton says.

Here’s what else you’ll find at Glacier Greens:

  • Work on your swing in comfort – No matter what the weather is doing, you can hit the driving range. The club offers both covered and open tee boxes, and with no nets trapping those drives, you can see exactly how far your shots travel!
  • Various membership options – Whether you’re a serving or retired military member, or a civilian resident looking for a great golf experience, Glacier Greens has a variety of membership options to choose from. Special rates are available for juniors and full-time post-secondary students. If you prefer to play less frequently but enjoy discounts, check into the four-, eight- and 12-game packs!
  • Extra perk for twilight members – New this year for twilight membership players is access to the Saturday member’s mornings shotgun starts. These weekly rounds tend to culminate in a post-round gathering in the newly renovated Social Centre lounge or on the patio overlooking the 18th green and offer a great chance to mix and mingle with fellow members!
  • Book your spot, improve your gear – Not only does the full-service pro shop feature a broad selection of golf merchandise and club-fitting services, you can sign up for lessons, junior camps and more. And if they don’t have what you’re looking for, they can usually order it in!

You can find more information about the club at glaciergreens.com and on their Facebook page. You can book a tee time online or by calling 250-339-6515.
