With stunning views on every hole, reasonable rates, interesting course layout without being too difficult for the average golfer, and good and well maintained course condition, I will definitely be back to play this course again. The pro shop is certainly not the ritziest place (they don't offer Pro V1's for sale), but it's quaint and friendly and in the... More

My mom and I drive around Alberta and BC on an annual golf safari and this year chose to spend 3 nights and golf two days at Kokanee Springs. Everything was great especially the staff. So friendly and accommodating on every level. The only complaint I had was that there was no cream or sugar for the morning coffee in... More

This was our first visit to Kokanee Springs if 12 years. When we stayed here in 2002 we were disappointed in the condition of the golf course (greens were terrible - winter kill and we were changed the full rate) and we thought the rooms were over-priced. We returned this year as my wife received a gift certificate for Bellstar... More

It has always been a pleasure to return to the east shore of Kootenay Lake to play golf at Kokanee Springs Golf Resort. As a 14 year old, I still remember looking down from the 1st tee and hitting my ball across Crawford Creek on the infamous 5th hole. Since those early days, playing "Kokanee" has always been an inspirational... More

We decided to celebrate my birthday by dining at Woods' Pumphouse Grill at Kokanee Springs Golf Resort. We had seen the advertisement about the... 'gourmet three course dinner special for just $35.' and we both decided to order it. We were expecting especially wonderful food for the price and were very disappointed. Mediocre is the word that comes to mind.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Kokanee Springs for opening weekend this year and it was perfect! Kokanee is a beautiful, hidden paradise and we could have stayed there for a week.

Shona, It is rewarding to hear you stay with us met or exceeded your expectations especially as a new season dawns.

Along the same vein Andrew Penner a freelance writer recently described our... More

Pretty disappointed with this course. At best it was in average condition when we played July 2013. The views are not all that spectacular with the exception of one or two holes. Considering how long it has been open, it doesn't appear that any improvements have been made in quite some time. The worst part of it all is the... More
