Besides the three 9 hole courses in town, can anyone recommend a course south of it? Are there any?

South of the three Vancouver parks you have:
- Robert Burnaby Park in Burnaby
- Winskill Park in Tsawwassen
- Langley Passive Park in Langley
- Thornhill Park in Maple Ridge
- Suppossely there is an object course in Clark Park in East Vancouver.
I know Winskill Park and have probably played it over 60 times as it was my home course for the last 4 months before I moved. I recommend you don't play there, it doesn't really offer much and is probably out of your way.
Unfortunately, I have not played any of the other courses listed above. I have heard good things about Langley Passive Park, it offers 18 holes and alternate tees. I've been meaning to play there for some time. Sadly, it is the only 18 hole course in the Greater Vancouver Area.
I'm not sure if you've made the trip over to Pender Island, but I've heard they have nice tightly wooded course over there, plus the ferry ride is always nice if you have the time.
If you're planning a trip up here, I'd either do it really soon or wait till spring as the weather is starting to get rainy which means the courses will become muddy.

Yeah, I will be going up November 1st for the day. I am going to try and get the three courses in downtown done, but was just checking to see if i should skip a course and head toward another. Thanks for your help. I will have to check in to that 18 hole course. And as for the Pender Island one, I guess I will have to wait till summer.

I would say play all the courses in town. If you had to skip one I would skip Quilchena. It's not very well designed. But if you have time, go for it. I've heard Robert Burnaby is pretty nice if you get a chance to head over there.

Skip Jericho Park it wasn't worth the drive out.
Little Mountain was a lot of fun with a small pond for a water hazard. Yes it is small and only 9 holes but they are fun. I played there 3 days in a row in July and after the second day I was picking up what the locals were doing. Since the course is so compacted you can make up your own holes from tee to hole. Granted only if its not too busy. I didn't see crowds coming until after 5.30 that would inhibit this creative course design.

I like Jericho because it isn't too busy usually and you can create some interesting holes after you get sick of the traditional set up.
