About the Course
The Links at Hampton Cove was opened as “The Cove Links Golf Course” in 2001 and was designed by Kitsul Bros. Landscaping & Development and constructed by the Bel Group of Companies.
One round through our challenging nine-hole executive golf course will leave most players with lighter golf bags, as a few balls will probably be donated during the round. As you gain a greater appreciation for the layout and design of this picturesque executive golf course, you will realize why it is called a hidden gem in the Lower Mainland. Golfers can immerse themselves in Delta’s lush wildlife, often spotting majestic eagles, blue herons, and stealthy hawks amidst muskrats, beavers, and coyotes.
Playing The Links
The golf course offers a choice of three tee boxes depending on your skill level and handicap. From the black tees, golfers will experience 1848 yards of strategically placed white sand bunkers and incredibly manicured greens. There are also the options of playing the white tees at 1674 yards and the red tees at 1454 yards.
More often than not, most players who choose to play 18 holes off the white or black tees will play the front nine off one set and the back nine off the other. These choices give the golfers different options, as the course sets up quite differently depending upon the choice. Whether you’re a beginner, pro or ranking amateur, plan to join us for your next round at The Links at Hampton Cove!

A demanding opening hole with a premium on accuracy. It plays 196 yards from the black tees and 183 from the white tees with a forced carry over water. The green is guarded by a deep bunker on the left. This opening hole prepares you for what lies ahead. This is not your typical executive golf course. Every hole could be right off a championship golf course. Enjoy!
This hole plays 173 yards from the white tees and 185 for the back tees. Take extra club to avoid the large deep bunker that guards the front of the green. Be aware of the water hazard to the left of the green which is not visible from the tee.
One of the only straightforward holes, which is 142 yards from the white tees and another 10 yards from the championship tee. Take dead aim and go for your birdie. This hole usually plays into the wind so make sure you have enough club.
This hole is 138 yards from the white tees and 159 from the recently added black tees. Don’t be intimidated by the visual from the tee, there is more room than it appears. A solid tee shot will carry the creek easily, setting up a possible birdie opportunity.
This 138-yard hole plays uphill over water to a narrow deep green. Take that extra club, especially from the 162-yard championship tees, as this hole usually plays into the prevailing wind. You might not feel the wind from the tee, as it’s protected by the houses.
This 165-yard par three may be one of the more difficult par threes you’ll ever play. This “signature hole” at The Links at Hampton Cove Links requires a demanding shot over water to a shallow undulating green. Take extra club as it is all carry over water to reach the green. A par here will feel like a birdie, especially from the 178-yard championship tee.
A narrow straight-away par four measuring 327 yards. Don’t be fooled by the yardage, there is water to the left and out of bounds to the right. Play a conservative tee shot to find the fairway and go for the birdie with an aggressive approach shot. Consider one more club for your second shot to the green.
Playing at 148 yards from the white tees, this par 3 has a large kidney-shaped green that is guarded by water on the front left and a huge bunker to the right. The prevailing wind is generally helping and from the right. For a real challenge, try the black tee that requires a 184-yard shot through a narrow alley way of trees on the left and right. Good luck!
A par four measuring 262 yards from the white tees and 307 from the black tees. Favour the left side of the fairway with your tee shot and be aware of the large overhanging tree on the right side. A good drive will leave you a short shot to the green to set up your birdie opportunity. There is a fairway bunker on the left and an environmental hazard that runs the entire length of the right side.
