The Kootenays have some of the best golfing experiences in the world

by Kerry Shellborn

If your summer plans include golfing in the Kootenays, you’ve chosen well. The region has some of the most spectacular courses you will ever have the pleasure of playing.

Golf is more than just setting off and trying to score under par. Serious golfers find all sorts of ways to enjoy their favourite sport. We have a few suggestions to add to your golf bucket list this year!

Get a custom club fitting 

Must-try #golfbucketlist: Every golfer at every skill level needs to visit The Nest – Purcell Golf’s new custom-fitting performance centre.

Leave inspired and more excited about your golf game than you were yesterday.

Try golfing with your best (four-legged) friend

Must-try #golfbucketlist: Nothing hurts more than leaving your furry friend at home while you go do outdoor activities. St. Eugene Golf Course understands that and invites not only you but your best friend to come golfing. Golfing with your dog is a must-try, so add it to your bucket list this summer. Dog tee times available Thursday to Monday after 3 p.m. Let us know at the time of booking.

St. Eugene Golf Course is COVID-compliant: Masks must be worn inside the pro shop. We have minimized touchpoints for our guests and staff. Guests must answer “no” to four questions upon arrival. We have increased sanitation throughout the Resort. Learn more about our COVID-19 Guidelines.

Play an entire round of golf during your lunch hour

Must-try #golfbucketlist: Have you ever wished you could play an entire round of golf in less time than it takes to eat lunch? The Mission Hills Golf Course has a full-size three-hole loop, known as the “Mini Mission” that you can complete in about 40 minutes. This is also a great option for young golfers who may not be up for nine or 18 holes of golf. But don’t let the short time frame fool you into thinking this isn’t a challenge. You’ll still need to bring your full bag of clubs to play the “Mini Mission.”
