The Fairmont has a lot to offer not only a golf enthusiast but anyone who wants to experience British Columbia on the whole. A range of outdoor activities is available, and the resort allows you the freedom to stay and play while you explore the region. Here are three reasons why you should include the Fairmont Hot Springs in your British Columbia golf vacation.
The classic layout of the Mountainside was revisited, and it was revamped and reopened to the public in 2012. The course utilizes the natural beauty of the Kootenay Rockies to add to the ambiance of the play.
You can play the course in under four hours, and the staff is helpful and friendly. Some may find the course challenging but if you’re an experienced golfer, you’ll have a good time. The greens slope into the valley. Be mindful that there is wildlife in the area, including bears, so be careful as you walk around the resort–especially the open areas.
The Columbia River is the main attraction of the Riverside Course. The contemporary design highlights the natural beauty of the region and gives enough of a challenge to any golfer. Even if you’re not up for golf, just walking along side the course is enough to leave you inspired. The pro-shop is nearby, as well as a sports bar and the hot springs.
Soak in the Namesake
After a round of golf, why not take a dip in the hot springs themselves? Over 1.5 million gallons of hot spring waters flow through the pools daily. Enjoy views of the Stanford Range of the Rocky Mountains. A great way to end a golfing trip, especially in the cooler months, when the hot water will feel the most refreshing.
