Perfect conditions. Soft fairways. Presteen greens. Great sales in the clubhouse. Fabulous beverage cart Service. I left my putter 2 holes back and when I asked the cart girl she was very happy to oblige but needed to finish her service round first. She quickly returned with my club, I was so grateful that I gave her a tip just for helping me. It was so hot that day that I felt barefoot play would be cooler, it was and the course was so amazingly soft to walk on. I love the work on the water features that have been done recently.

Played on a typical beautiful Shuswap summer day! Course was in fantastic shape; it is a challenging walk. Wide fairways collect all but the very errant drive however the tiered greens make the course challenging. Better hit a great 2nd shot into 18 or a big number is possible.

Wide fairways generally makes for a pleasant driving experience. Lots of elevation changes. Easy to find wayward drives, rough is very well maintained. Keep your head up on one of the holes. It crosses a small plane landing strip! A fun course!

What a great value for a really good golf course. It turned out fantastic as the rain quit before we teed off and the weather was perfect for our round. We were pleasantly surprised when our cart was also included at no additional cost. All in all this was a great experience and we plan to use this app again for future golf.
