Visit Kamloops, BC to experience some of the best golf in the region. From mountain getaways to river views to canyon-filled golf layouts, there’s a little something for everyone who chooses to golf here. Here are the picks from Golf Canada’s West for the 3 Best Golf Courses in Kamloops BC.
- Rivershore Golf Links
- Tobiano Golf Course
- Sun Peaks Resort
The Rivershore combines brush-covered hills and a desert-like setting with a layout that follows the Thompson River. It has over 95 bunkers but overall, it is a fair and honest course. It has been recognized for its excellence on several fronts and received a four-star rating from Golf Digest Magazine. The course has hosted several men and women’s amateur and professional championships over the years and has been recognized as a world-class facility.
Called the number one golf course in British Columbia by Score Golf magazine, Tobiano not only captures your attention with its stunning scenery but also with its modern layout. The natural canyons have been incorporated into the design, setting the course apart from others in the area. With its mix of challenges including a tee shot over a large canyon, and with the Kamloops Lake featured on every hole, Tobiano is a must-see for golfers visiting the Kamloops region of BC.
Forty minutes northeast of Kamloops lives the Sun Peaks Resort. As British Columbia’s second-largest all-season mountain resort, the summer brings a challenging golf course nestled between three mountains: Tod, Sundance, and Morrisey. The front nine were constructed in 1996 and requires extreme accuracy, due to the narrow fairways. Use the irons here. The back nine, finished in 2005, balance the difficulties presented by the front nine. The fairways are more open and forgiving. There’s a lot to do at or around the resort, such as wildlife viewing, mountain biking, hiking, and canoeing. Lodging is available with multiple budget options and Hole #16 provides stunning views of Mt. Morrisey and the homes below.
