About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6712
Slope 125
Rating 71.8
Type Semi-Private
From its perch atop a plateau that sits above the Columbia River, Castlegar Golf Club offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. The up-and-down layout plays through forests of pine trees that can prove to be treacherous to the errant shot and the sloping greens don't make the golf course any easier either. Major golf publications including Golf Digest have hailed Castlegar as one of the best courses to play in Canada, especially for the value. The layout's most challenging hole is the par-4 ninth, which requires not only two long shots in order to reach the green, but the approach also has to be well placed to even have a chance at a birdie or par. In addition to the challenging course, a driving range and practice greens are also available for golfers at Castlegar Golf Club.

Great course with great staff

August 4th was my first time playing this course. I usually play Granite Point in Nelson because I stay in Nelson. The Castlegar course far exceeds Granite Point in every way. I enjoyed it so much that I’m coming back tomorrow.

excellent playing conditions

When my wife played it was fairly quiet-we felt we had the course to ourselves so the pace of play was great. We live in the area so we know the course well. It doesn't get any better than this!! one of the best courses in the west kootenays-arguably the best!!

Course A1. New Restaurant Management?.

Once again Castlegar was an absolute challenge and pleasure to play. Pro Shop and restaurant servers were friendly and professional. Will always come back despite the awkwardness/coldness felt in the Clubhouse prior to the round and at the turn. No smile or greetings. Not used to this after numerous trips

A true gem in the Kootenays. Not to be missed.

Have not played the course in 10 years but it is still a fantastic golf experience at a reasonable price, even at full rates.This is one of the best golf values I know of. It is an outstanding layout nestled into the mountains. Fair but very challenging at times. Use the free course guide available at the pro shop! A few red tee boxes were set back with the whites so the course was at times really tough for anyone playing the reds. Despite being at the end of a record setting stretch without rain the greens and the fairways were in great shape and the course played beautifully. The staff was very friendly and the facilities were comfortable. Nothing but great things to say.

A really good experience

The course is in great condition. There is a good variety hole layouts, with beautiful scenery. A number of greens are rather challenging but fun. Overall our favorite course played on our Kootenay vacation, and only a half hour drive from Nelson

A Great Course

I've golfed this course once in the past and loved it. Staff are very friendly however the colours for the tee boxes have changed since I golfed there last and we weren't told before heading out. Very confusing as the score cards didn't match up with the indicators on the tee boxes.
