A ' river runs through it ' is the dominant theme at Riverside golf course, one of the most enjoyable courses to play - and walk! - in the region. Indeed, the fast - flowing Columbia River is always close at hand and this contemporary design is laced with memorable golf holes that showcase the striking nature of this property. With a spacious pro shop, a sports bar, and, of course, the nearby hot springs, Riverside golf course at Fairmont Hot Springs is a one - stop shop for a fabulous day of golf. Riverside also provides full practice facilities and a driving range.
Hole number five, known as the “double cross” requires shooting across the Columbia River twice from the Championship Tees. Fortunately, the other tees reduce the water crossing as they get shorter. Talk to people in Portland Oregon and mention this signature Riverside Golf course hole and they may look at you oddly. As in Portland the Columbia River is over 1 mile wide, yet in the BC Rockies, the Columbia River is an infant in size.
Riverside Golf course has won the top title for a golf course as “Canada’s golf course of the year” in 1998, and the Riverside Golf course and Estates is well recognized among Canada’s finest golf communities. It offers an unparalleled lifestyle opportunity for home ownership in a spectacular wilderness and recreational setting.
