Kimberley offers golf enthusiasts three championship golf courses with spectacular mountain views. All four offer 18-hole courses with breathtaking views. For more information check out the following links:
Kimberley Golf Club : This is one of the oldest golf courses in the Columbia Valley. Established in 1924, it has been a strong favorite for many provincial and regional championships over the years and is home to some of the longest-running tournaments in Canada.
It is conveniently located just 20 minutes from Canadian Rockies International Airport in Cranbrook BC. With the majestic Rocky Mountains towering to the east and the Purcell Mountain range to the west, the long hours of daily sunshine, warm summer temperatures and noticeably friendly atmosphere have long made the charming 18-hole par-71 course one of the most celebrated in the Kootenay Rockies.
Bootleg Gap Golf: This is a 27-hole public course alongside Highway 93 in South Kimberley, BC. This course was designed by renowned architect Les Furber, and is an 18-hole championship course, along with a 9-hole recreational course andone of the best practice facilities in the area –- all in one place. SCORE Golf Magazine rates it among the top courses in the province and golfing at Bootleg Gap is reasonably priced, too.
Trickle Creek Golf Resort: This is the ultimate mountain golfing experience for those of you who want to experience all the trills, scenery, and excitement of this scenery. This is a vacation golf getaway that you will not forget. The course was designed by Les Furber, one of western Canada’s best known architects, to weave through the rugged and forested landscape, leap over lively creeks and roll with the slopes at the base of Kimberley BC’s North Star Mountain –- and all of this amid some of the most breathtaking scenery anywhere in the world. The readers of SCORE Golf Magazine have given it a bronze medal as one of the top resort courses in the country.
Shadow Mountain Golf Course: Just a few short minutes’ drive from Canadian Rockies International Airport at Cranbrook BC, the spectacular new Shadow Mountain Golf Course is everything the mountain golfer dreams about.
Architect Wayne Carleton of Cooke Carleton International describes Shadow Mountain asone of the most intriguing properties for golf that he has ever had the pleasure to work on in Canada. “The routing will take the golfer on an adventure across this diverse landscape of rolling forested sand dunes and mountainous terrain,” he says. “No expense was spared in preserving the natural character of this wonderful site, letting the land dictate the design and thus allowing us to create some of the most memorable golf holes you will ever have the privilege of playing.”
