Golf with all five senses

With gorgeous landscapes and diverse terrain, valley courses offer something for golfers of all stripes and skill sets.

The Columbia Valley is well known for its number and wide variety of golf courses.

There is a course for every level of play and, in fact, most courses adapt very well to most levels.

Radium boasts two very different courses. The Radium Resort course is a matriarch of sorts, having been founded in 1957.

The oldest course in the valley is a favourite of many, offering incredible views and spectacular elevation changes – especially on holes three and 12.

This is a somewhat shorter course at par 69 and a perfect complement to the challenges offered at The Springs course of the Resort.

The Springs is a Les Furber-designed course. For some golfers no more needs to be said.

Furber’s reputation for magical golf courses is well known and The Springs is one of his best.

The course is consistently ranked as one of Canada’s top 100 and its views are unforgettable. The Columbia River banks, the Purcell Mountains and the Rockies are all highly visible in the landscape.

For an especially family-friendly outing, head to the Windermere Valley Golf Course.

Playing to a par 66, this is a very walkable track. It’s beautifully maintained and the scenic views are awesome.

The course is attractive to young, old, expert and beginner golfers. For a quicker round on a busy day, this is the course that will allow you to have it all, including a most enjoyable game of golf.

For a mountain course, you’re not going to find one more spectacular than Greywolf Golf Course.

Recognized by Golf Digest as one of the top 100 courses in the world outside of the United States, you have to play this course.

Canadian golf architect Doug Carrick designed it in the alpine setting at Panorama Mountain Village. For many golfers, this becomes their new favourite golf course.

Eagle Ranch offers 18 holes of golf perched on the ancient bluffs overlooking the Columbia River, with both the Purcells and Rockies adding to its beauty.

This is a magnificent course that will be a centerpiece as the resort evolves. The views from the eighteenth green are second-to-none.

 

All of these courses offer instruction and wonderful dining facilities. Don’t miss the opportunity to frequent each of them this season.
