The Creston Golf Club was founded in 1954, when a group of local citizens formed a society, and purchased 100 acres of previously logged Crown land for $265. Alan Staples, the first president said, “That may not sound like much, but we had a hell of a time raising the money”. That about sums up the gradual development of the Creston Club, heavy on volunteerism, with much support from the community; accomplishing minor miracles with local ingenuity and limited resources. Local engineer Vaughan Mosher donated his time to design the original course and many volunteers helped build 9 holes, carved out of the bush, with sand greens, completely ready for play in 1962.
The Selkirk Mountains and Skimmerhorn Range tower above the course and views extend to the broad expanse of the Kootenay River Valley and Kootenay Lake.
