The St. Eugene Golf Course more than matches the tradition of great golf in the Kootenay Rockies. Designed by acclaimed architect Les Furber, it is indeed a masterpiece in an incredible setting. Winding its way through open links land and rolling woodlands, this golf course carries spectacular views of the St. Mary River and the powerful Fisher Peak amidst the Rocky Mountains to the east.
The St. Eugene golf course is a wonderful combination of length and design strategy that will surely challenge both the player and the enthusiast. The overall design concept of Les Furber places an emphasis on shot value. Good shots are always rewarded. Your target off the tee on each par 4 should be the 150 yard marker located in the center of each fairway. Avoiding the fairway bunkers off the tees on the par 5’s will leave you in the ideal position. Be aware of the pin placements on these large undulating greens. Many of our greens are over 30 yards in depth placing a premium on club selection for your approach shots. Opened in May of 2000, the St. Eugene Golf Course met with immediate accolades from golfers and in 2001 was included in the top 3 Best New Canadian Golf courses category by Golf Digest magazine. The course features 18 holes with 4 sets of tees measuring from 5,388 yards at the front markers to 7,007 yards from the championship tees.
The unique Barn Clubhouse at St. Eugene is one of the original landmarks in the Kootenays and was one of the buildings in use during the times that the Mission operated as a Residential school.
