“Excellent Course, Variety of Holes”
Review of Bootleg Gap Golf

Owner description: Bootleg Gap Golf, located in Kimberley British Columbia, is truly a complete golf facility. With 27 outstanding holes, and a stunning location along the St. Mary River. The Championship course at Bootleg Gap is highlighted with the 12th, a dramatic par-3 that swoops down into the hoodoo-lined hillside and is one of the most scenic par-3s in the region. For variety try the Recreational 9; it's a hybrid and fun for every level of player.

I played this course on July 10, 2013. This course is possibly the best value in the Kimberley area. The greens had been aerated the day before, but the course notified us several weeks in advance. There was a reduced rate in effect, but the conditions were still fantastic.

The course contains a wide variety of holes including some very open holes to get started, before moving down into some tight holes on the back nine. Even if you do hit into the trees, you have a good chance of finding your ball and being able to hit a recovery shot. The course is slightly easier than other courses in the area (slope of 120 from the blue tees at 6400 yards), but still offers a good challenge.

Pros
- Affordable green fee
- Wide variety of holes
- Large well maintained practice facility

Cons
- Practice balls not included in rate

Showed up early for our tee time. Woman at the counter told us 2 threesomes had just teed off but we were up when we're ready. This is the kind of information not everyone gives you when you show up to a golf course. It's much appreciated. She then pointed us off to where the first tee is.

We played the rec 9 course. The greens were fast and aside from the first fairway, we found the fairways to be tight for a shorter, more novice-oriented course. You can lose your ball really easily with an errant shot. But what a course! I'd play it again and again if I lived near.

Golf course was the best we played in the four days that we were in the area. The restaurant area was first class. Service was A+, food was A+ and decor was A+. Thanks to all the staff that made our day the best it could be. We can also thank the weatherman.

Staff were awesome, helpful, and courteous! Driving range open, practice greens perfect representation of course. Fun course with some challenging holes. Some high risk - high reward opportunities. Greens were already in summer condition. Clubhouse menu was great. Proshop well stocked. Shot well from the blues.

Just got to love everything about Bootleg. The 18 and 9 hole course are first class. Staff are friendly and the restaurant patio the best in Kimberley.
