Harvey Hadden was a wealthy English textile merchant who travelled by coastal steamer to visit Vancouver. Hadden had heard that Vancouver might offer some interesting opportunities for property development. He spent the summer in the city (population 13,700) bought a large number of commercial properties in the city and before returning to his home in England.
After being away for more than a decade, Hadden came back to Vancouver and purchased a 160-acre property west of the Capilano River. He built a mansion called Hadden Hall near the current location of the Clubhouse and landscaped the property to create a “sort of Garden of Eden in the forest.” This property would become the Capilano Golf and Country Club.
Capilano Golf and Country Club combines natural beauty with world-class design to offer members an exclusive golfing experience. Carved out of the rainforest and designed by the renowned Stanley Thompson, generous treelined fairways, artistic bunkers and spectacular greensites make Capilano challenging and enjoyable for players of all abilities. The course has a uniquely West Coast style, set against the backdrop of the North Shore Mountains with spectacular views of Vancouver and beyond.
The Club''s members are passionate about golf but equally enthusiastic about enjoying all aspects of the North Shore lifestyle. Before or after a game, meet old friends and make new connections while enjoying the elegant ambience and excellent cuisine of our stately clubhouse.
