Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your experience at Tobiano. You are quite right on the timing of course maintenance. Some of the major activities are planned out a year in advance, however ongoing maintenance like top-dressing are a monthly item that changes as conditions vary.

Great service, jaw-dropping views, superb course layout, PGA-quality fairways and greens, and a course that will kick your butt and then hug you, over and over again.

This golf course is one of the most challenging that I've ever played. From the first tee on, you better have your A game or you should be moving to the back tees. A very good challenge from the tips with a 250 yard carry on a couple of par fives. Definitely worth playing.

TobianoGolf, Manager at Tobiano Golf Course, responded to this review

Thank you for the review GusGristle. If playing from the Tour tees, the 7,367 yards of Tobiano can present a challenge to the most skilled golfers out there. Fortunately, we try to balance that challenge with 6 other tee options to take the course down to a mangable 5,358 from the forward Sage tees. Again, thank you for visiting and... More

Great visit. The facility as a whole is great. Right from the practice range and greens the standard is high. Amazing use of natural features throughout the course. Jasmine was a standout employee.

Impressive, wonderful, a joy to play are the words that come to mind when I think back over my day, today, at Tobiano Golf Course.

Thank you for your review of the course Woodmister. You are absolutley correct that course knowledge is very important at Tobiano. We encourage all players to review the on-cart GPS notes and hole flyovers to give a better idea of where to go if you've never played before. Of course, multiple rounds always help in providing that ever important course... More

Went to Kamloops particularly to play this highly regarded course. Was not dissapointed. At $89, green fees are fair, and condition of course impeccable. Carts have GPS, with great practice facility (range, chipping area, putting green). Course is challenging with forced carries on almost every hole. Greens are tricky and fescue nasty. Beautiful views of river and mountains on almost... More

Played Tobiano in late April... course conditions were excellent....greens running like summer... course is very demanding and caters to strong golfers... views of Kamloops Lake are stunning... old Canadian 100 dollar bill view can be had from the course... well worth the trip for serious golfers

this is not a beginners course, beautiful views of the land and valley, but you need to be able to drive a ball at least 200 yds on some hole, or you will be dropping on the other side of a ravine

Thank you for your review. Given the undulating landscape that Tobiano is built upon, we appreciate that the course design lends to some challenging shots. We have endeavoured to soften up some of those forced carries by instituting 7 verified tee positions to accommodate golfers of all abilities. We do hope you return and get to experience Tobiano once again... More
