Tobiano Golf Course

38 Holloway Dr (Off Trans Canada Highway), Kamloops, British Columbia Tobiano Golf Course

Tobiano Golf Course, designed by award-winning Canadian golf architect Thomas McBroom. Tobiano golf sits on the historic site of Six Mile Ranch. Tobiano golf course is one of the gems of golf in not only the Thompson Region, but for the entire province of British Columbia. Boasting five very demanding par 5s, Tobiano golf is as visually captivating as it is to play. Score Golf Magazine even refers to Tobiano as a "magnificently sculpted course and an aerial photographer's dream."

Complete with a 10,000 sq. ft clubhouse, golf shop, indoor/outdoor dining facility and enticing practice facility, Tobiano golf can be enjoyed both by energetic beginners and the elite professional. Be sure to select the best tees for a fun experience, otherwise you will find this course very demanding with the forced carries

My time at Tobiano was more than I could have hope for or imagined! The course is terrific, and the staff was second to none. I can not wait to come back again. Surely, it will be an annual trip for me at least. Dave, Nicole, Jesse, Sam and the other gals in the restaurant went the extra mile to make my experience memorable. Miles left me a momento, which I will send him a thank you note for. A golf club head cover horse with Tobiano written on it! Fantastic! I appreciate all you did to put the lodging and golfing together and for passing on the vette pics. A way cool trip!

Just wanted to express my thanks once again for our recent golf excursion to Kamloops which you had a huge hand in making it one of our best ever! The weather was amazing... 33-35 C everyday and what can I say about Tobiano... probably one of my top 2 courses I have ever played ( same goes for the rest of our group ) Some tougher holes than others but the whole experience was unreal! I will be in contact with you in April of 2011 to make this all happen once again. More than likely back to Kelowna but we'll see!?! As a group, we are talking about making this a bi-annual thing but you know how that works with wives, etc... it's a "work in progress".

We were very impressed with all the courses (found Tobiano pretty difficult and Talking Rock a pleasant surprise) and all the people we met there. The Thompson Inn was in a front lobby reno, but it wasn't an issue really, people were good and its very central, we enjoyed being right downtown on Victoria St as opposed to up the hill at say the Accent Inn, which is something you might want to hi-lite for people ( either way ). I think Kamloops has got it right in their customer/service/attitude department, found everyone from hotel, golf course and restaurant staff to be excellent. Big thumbs up for the 3.2.1. Bistro, awesome restaurant

The course was so nice we played it twice this day. Beautiful views. Greens were fast, to food was great. Could not ask for anything better, great job Tobiano.

Doug Shantz

It was a perfect day we were welcomed with first rate service and very friendly smiles ! Amazing desert like course at the top of the mountain. No doubt why it is such a highly rated golf course Check your ego at the door and play appropriately and you can score well I did! THANK-YOU to all the staff we had a great time and can't wait to do it again

Denise Irwin

Probably our favourite course in Canada and we've played many in Ontario, Quebec, PEI, BC and Alberta. Scenic, excellent condition, interesting and challenging.

Andy & Gloria Schwabe

Beatiful scenery, amazing condition, but to me the course layout lacked any imagination whatsoever, as if McBroom wanted to say "screw you average golfer". If I never see another ravine in my life it will be too soon, as seemingly every hole had demanding shots that if missed by 10 feet, would kill you.

Matt Taylor

A great course. only finished 9 holes due to weather, but will go back ASAP. Perfect condition and a top rate facility where they pamper you. Greens were fast but not ridiculous, and the fairways were immaculate.

tom willbourn

A great vista not nearly matched in terms of playability. A pure resort course with hidden fairways and greens, ribbon like landing areas, and virtually no margin for error on many holes. Do not follow the handicap recommendation on which tees to play. The safest play for most would be the blues and it will still be a harsh challenge. Playing it once is plenty for me but I might go sit on the deck to take in a truly magnificent view. Oh yeah....brings lots of balls.

Tobiano is simply spectacular! You have to play it at least once in your golf life. It is challenging at times but rewarding it can be. The greens are very fast in August. Lefties, make sure you have a cut drive in your swing arsenal. Don't forget to admire the views, a beautiful place to play golf. BC Golf Guide arranged our package and everything was perfect, thanks.

On a still wintery golf week,we played Tobiano. It's a course not to be missed. Stunning views,some incredible target holes. But most important is the quality of the fairways and greens,absolutely 1st class!We'll come back in the summer or fall.
