Christina Lake Golf Club

Christina Lake Golf Club

Established in 1962 as a 9 hole course, the Christina Lake Golf Course was expanded to an 18 hole 6785 yard course in 1986. The course expansion was designed by Les Furber and shows off his signature architecture with elevated tees, strategically bunkered greens and fairways, multi-tiered greens and four holes featuring water hazards. This is the first course in Canada to offer the unique feature of black sand traps (slag). Christina Lake golf Club is regarded as one of the top 25 golf courses in British Columbia.

The signature hole on the course is the 9th, a 215 yard par three. An elevated tee box looks down upon a green bordered by two sand traps on the right and a large lateral water hazard along the full length of its left side. Located on the scenic Kettle River, the course is surrounded by ponderosa pine and fir trees, with the Monashee and Selkirk Mountains providing a beautiful backdrop. The Christina Lake golf club is located minutes from Christina Lake (known as the warmest lake in Canada) and is only a half mile from the Cascade-Laurier U.S. border (two hours north of Spokane) and two hours southeast of Kelowna.

Granite Pointe Golf Course Nelson

Granite Pointe Golf Course Nelson

With splendid views of the Kokanee Glacier, Kootenay Lake and the mountain city of Nelson, the Granite Pointe Golf Club is yet another gem in BC’s scenic Kootenays.

The course traverses challenging terrain and features a number of risk-reward holes requiring precise shot-making.  Be warned however, ‘precise shot-making’ can be hampered by the many magnificent vistas that include the crystal waters of Kootenay Lake, the historic buildings of Nelson and the famed Kokanee Glacier!

Not surprisingly, many people who come to Nelson, BC never leave.  A visit to the Granite Pointe Golf Club capped off with a great meal in our beautiful new clubhouse may have you longing to become a resident sometime soon!
