“Nice course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Sue the hotel front desk lady told me that this was a good course. After playing on it, I got some nice advice. Good challenging course. Nice. By the way the food there is pretty good as well.

“Challenging but fair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I have played this course six times since April and at least six times a year for the last 5 years. The course is kept in great condition during the playing season (Apr. to Nov.). The course is challenging with a couple of 400+ yd par 4's one of which is all uphill. It also features the shortest par 5 in the valley measuring a little under 400yds from the whites, its short but it is a test because your second or possible your third shot is all uphill to an elevated two tiered green. The restaurant serves excellent food at a good price. Green fees can vary but average about $50.00 + $20.00/ seat for a GPS equipped power cart. The only negative that I can say is that the front 9 ends quite a way from the club house and and the turn has no snack shop but is served by a mobile bev cart fairly often. Just to add that the staff is first class and is always friendly.

“Nice old course.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

A classic course, with mountain and lake views. Nice length and interesting topography. I like the vertical on several of the holes.

“Great GPS System on Golf Carts!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Wow - what an advantage, this Golf Course has a GPS system on their golf carts which totally heps map out your club selection and completely changes the game!! I played 10 shots better then my usual just because of this feature! AND they can even email you your score if you want!! How great is that?? I can't wait to play here again.

A few tips:
Play in the afternoon because morning time is "soggy time" at this course.
There is lots of water opportunities here, however they need another washroom facility on the back nine (hole 10 would be ideal).
The staff is friendly enough, their golf shop is on the small side, but has the basics.
The restaurant has grab and go items ready for purchase.
We didn't actually eat in the restaurant so I can't provide an opinion.

I would recommend this course. It was fun.

“Great scenary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

We golfed a round here in May. Shannon Lake Golf Club is a really scenic course offering exactly what you would expect in a mountain course. Several of the holes had significant vertical displacement between the tees and pin making for some challenging play. It's fun to drive from a high tee box and difficult to play up to the green when you can't even see the flag because it's so high above you. The course is fairly forgiving with berms that keep shots that are only mildly off target in the general vicinity of the fairway or green. Righties that slice like I do will probably have a few nervous moments driving alongside the roads and lake that always seem to be to the right of the fairway.

When we went most of the hole maps were missing. Pay close attention to map on the scorecard as several of the holes have blind dog legs. I would probably consider booking another round here the next time I'm in Westbank though.
