Always a great round at Greywolf

This week's Valley Echo Golf shines the spotlight on the Greywolf course at Panorama Mountain Village.

Ahhhh, it’s such a treat to say “I’m playing at Greywolf tomorrow.” I had many envious comments on my Facebook page.

The weather was fantastic — warm, but not too warm. The course was inviting and the staff was attentive.

I was on holidays so was able to play on a day that wasn’t as busy as some others. It was a very nice, relaxing round on a fantastic course. Starter/course marshal Rick was very helpful and friendly.

I’ve had many discussions with many people about this course. I

’ve been told that it is a very difficult one to play and I’ve countered with, “No, it isn’t, I parred three holes last time I played.”

Since I am a very average golfer, this surprises those that know me. I did not play as well this time but still am not intimidated by this track.

I would strongly encourage anybody to make the drive to Panorama and play. I certainly don’t want to discourage better golfers either, there are ample challenges on each hole.

Of course the Cliffhanger sixth hole is the greatest challenge for many. A big drive over a big ravine to a small target is always fun, isn’t it?

I thought it was my lucky day as my drive soared over the ravine… only to land in the trees, never to be seen again!

This course is ranked in the top 100 in the world, outside of the United States by Golf Digest and was designed by Doug Carrick a very well-respected Canadian golf architect.

The panoramic views from every tee box will be sure to please. I was reminded again about the lady in the mountain who watches over all the golfers from many angles.

After your game treat yourself to food and beverage at Carrick’s Restaurant.

Another treat I enjoyed at the end of the day was the drive from Panorama to Invermere.

We sometimes forget about all the beautiful places around us. The scenes of Toby Creek and the mountains are truly breathtaking.

Treat yourself to a round of golf and spend the day at Greywolf; you’ll be glad you did!
