About the Resort Course
Cut out of an alpine forest, this course features tight, tree-lined fairways, undulating greens and dramatic elevation changes. The Resort Course can be forgiving to the average golfer – just like you would expect from an old friend – but it offers challenges for the low handicapper.
Perched high over the Columbia Valley in the rugged terrain bordering Kootenay National Park, the Purcell and Rocky Mountain ranges frame the course, creating a one-of-a-kind setting. With jaw-dropping vistas and spectacular elevation changes combined with playability, it’s easy to see why the oldest course in the Valley has withstood the test of time.
Join us to experience a 50 year-old golfing tradition.
New Holes Constructed
Former owners of the Resort had cleared many trees in this forested area years ago in the hopes of one day building another golf course. Renowned Golf Course Architect Bill Newis has taken advantage of these cleared areas and carefully planned the new holes to improve on the current popularity of the Resort Course, all the while remaining cognizant of the natural setting.
The Resort Course’s new holes are surrounded by forest and sit at the base the Rocky Mountains. The three new holes were designed by Bill Newis and built north of the existing 12th and 13th holes incorporating them into the back nine.

Resort Hole 1

Resort Hole 2
The green on this tricky par 3 slopes from back to front with bunkers on either side. A precise tee shot is required. Don’t be long, there is a severe drop off behind the green.
|3||170 yds||158 yds||136 yds||122 yds|
Resort Hole 3
Favour the left side from the tee in order to open up the green for your 2nd shot. The approach requires good distance control. Par is always a great score.
|4||326 yds||326 yds||326 yds||313 yds|
Resort Hole 4
Favour the left side from the tee on this short Par 4. The open green will allow for an excellent birdie opportunity.
|4||295 yds||295 yds||295 yds||282 yds|
Resort Hole 5
Short but tricky Par 5 should not be taken lightly as O.B. flanks both sides of the fairway. A drive down the left centre to the corner can set up a chance to reach in 2.
|5||484 yds||484 yds||484 yds||402 yds|
Resort Hole 6
This tough Par 3 requires an extra club to reach the green. Try to leave your tee shot right of the hole to avoid rolling off this sloping green.
|3||181 yds||181 yds||181 yds||176 yds|
Resort Hole 7
Beautiful downhill Par 4. Please be sure the group ahead is out of range before teeing off . Approach over water to this two tiered green requires excellent distance control.

|3||126 yds||126 yds||126 yds||105 yds|
Resort Hole 9
This long downhill, dogleg Par 4 requires a right to left tee shot. The approach requires less club than normal. Being long leaves a very difficult chip coming back.
|4||400 yds||400 yds||400 yds||391 yds|
Resort Hole 10
Accuracy is the key all the way up on this short but very intimidating Par 4. An iron or fairway wood tee shot sets up an approach to a very small green.
|4||324 yds||324 yds||324 yds||311 yds|
Resort Hole 11
An accurate iron or fairway wood tee shot is recommended in order to avoid the O.B. right and trees left. An excellent birdie opportunity.
