Spring is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors in Kamloops. The snow has melted, and the beautiful flowers and various kinds of wildlife are now prominent features in the landscape. If you are like many residents of Kamloops, you may be headed out to enjoy the sights and smells of spring with a round of golf. Kamloops and its surrounding areas include more than a dozen unique and challenging golf courses that vary from desert scape to mountain or lake views. If you're interested in taking some swings, here are a few of the courses you can consider:
Rivershore: This beautiful course was designed by the highly acclaimed Robert Trent Jones, Sr. Laying in a desert-like setting at the foot of sagebrush-covered hills above the majestic South Thompson River, Rivershore is generously bunkered. This picturesque course provides a great round for any levels of play. In addition, it is the proud host of the inaugural Canadian Tour Western Championships this June-the first professional tournament to be hosted in Kamloops.
Sun Rivers: As one of Canada's few true desert courses, this provides a great contrast from the waterfront and mountain courses that dominate the country. From its bent grass fairways to the natural sage and rolling hills, you will feel hundreds of miles away from the ski resorts and mountains....and you're only eight minutes away from downtown Kamloops.
Sun Peaks: This Graham Cooke designed course is centered along the valley floor amongst three surrounding mountains. As British Columbia's highest elevation course (at 1200 meters), you can really see your ball fly off the tee! Don't forget to stop in one of Sun Peak Resort's many restaurants for a bite to eat afterwards.
Canoe Creek: This unique course brings a bit of the British Isles to Shuswap. Featuring open fields, grass-faced bunkers, and striking water features, Canoe Creek is truly a breathtaking course. Located just 45 minutes from downtown Kamloops.
