Golf and Romance
"Places to swing"
No, this isn't another chapter on dancing. Here, I'll recommend some places to hit the green -- you know, the links where you can show off your new King Cobra clubs ...
Sunshine Woods: This filipino-Canadian-owned golf course is actually in Delta, not Surrey, but seeing that it has an excellent driving range, I thought I would recommend it. You can find it right off Highway 91, towards White Rock. It also has a small club house.
Guildford Golf Course: Situated right on the eastern side of 152nd Avenue, this Golf Club is the most expensive to join. I hear the course is set up in a difficult way, so I wish you luck. But if you're there simply to watch people and enjoy the scenery, I hear the club food is great.
If you find the ambiance at Guildford's country club a little too stifling, perhaps you can walk across the avenue to Coyote Creek, a more laid-back golf club. I don't know of anyone who has played golf there, but it seems quite busy on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
"Places to smooch"
Hard to believe that this new city has a romance factor. Well, it's definitely NOT up there with the Vienna, but remember, Surrey is still new.
Aside from Bear Creek Park, I think that a nice place to get romantic is at Cresent Beach. It's not as commercialized as White Rock beach, and it has soft sand that you can walk barefoot on. The water isn't azure blue, but it laps gently onto the shore.
Another place to smooch is at the White Rock pier. After an hour of strolling along the boardwalk shops, you should take your partner down the pier for a nice hand-in-hand walk. Great views of the ocean and our neighbour to the South (the USA). This is not the place to walk around barefoot, as you'll hurt yourself on the rocky shore.
Wanna go further (I mean further south!), then maybe you'd like to check out the Peace Arch at the CANADA-USA border. Some just-married couples like to take their wedding photos here.
