Not a member, but I won the 35 and over men's doubles event at the Vancouver Island Grass Court Championships at that facility a few years back.

You may already know this, but the club is actually located about 40 miles/60+ kilometers outside of Victoria in a little town called Duncan.

The grass courts are not much better than a soccer field with lines painted on them, and one of the courts actually has a tree within play. Never-the-less, the tournament was quaint, offered ITF points (at the time), and was a nice throw back to "lawn tennis" of yesteryear. However, if you are looking for grass courts like Wimbledon, you'll be disappointed.
