Shadow Mountain is a great example of mountain golf that takes advantage of the terrain and views without being over-the-top! A fair test of golf for the average player with large greens that are kept at playable speeds. Fantastic value and a must play if you are in the Cranbrook/Kimberly area. Certainly on my play again list!

Shadow Mountain is a quiet out of the way golf course, which for some reason has not really caught on just yet. The greens were wonderful and quite challenging, with fairly wide fairways to give even the novice golfer a fighting chance. You are greeted with a friendly good morning as soon as you arrive, although the pro-shop staff were... More

Just played Shadow Mountain for the first time on the May 2014 long weekend. Really liked the look and layout of the course. The greens were recently aerated and were VERY, VERY bumpy so hopefully they will grow in fairly fast for the season. We played right after it had been raining for a few hours and while the fairways... More

Very nice fairways and greens in top shape..Some great views of the Rockies. Friendly staff. One of the best GPS system on the golf carts.

Some holes where you tee off from high up, these are fun, and the course is in great condition. However the, course lacks character and has a built and not a designed feel. It's good for a fun day out.

Played 2 rounds at Shadow Mountain and what a beautiful course. Amazing layout with several elevated tee boxes and extremely challenging. I would say not well suited to new golfers but if you go there knowing the course is going to eat you up and just enjoy the layout and scenery you will still enjoy yourself. If you go after... More

I have played Shadow Mountain before but I have never reviewed it. The course is outstanding with a first rate practice facility to get you ready for your game, which you should use as the minute you are on the course the challenges begin. Having heard that the course is up for sale, I was concerned that the conditioning would... More

I played this course on July 12, 2013. The course layout is extremely scenic and very challenging. The most impressive aspect of Shadow Mountain was how well the course was maintained. The practice facility is possibly the best I have ever used. The greens, fairways, and tee boxes were all perfectly manicured and maintained. The sand traps were well groomed... More

Played here this week. Course is for sale and they are charging full pop. Lots of bunkers not finished, just packed mud with plenty of weeds growing from them. Not for the average player - neat layout but very tough if you miss the fairways or greens. Not sure what their target market is here, but way too tough for... More
