The creek was named in the 1870s after early prospector and settler Oliver Furry.
The beautiful townhouse complex that also bares his name is, Oliver’s Landing. The complex boasts 56 amazingly designed townhomes, some of which offer a breathtaking waterfront views. There are also many unique and equally beautiful architecturally designed homes in the area, all of which have a secluded atmosphere.
The greatest feature of this small community, other than the views and seclusion, is the renowned Furry Creek Golf and Country Club. Arguably the most scenic golf course in British Columbia, this Golf Course offers 18 holes, most of which providing an ideal view of what makes B.C great. The Sea to Sky restaurant has an eclectic chef designed menu. Enjoy your meal looking over the golf course, treetops and the ocean on the Howe Sound.
