Kokanee Springs Resort Club has a winding layout that wraps around a mountain, offering panoramic views of Kokanee Glacier and the surrounding countryside along the way. The golf course features long driving fairways and massive, rolling greens that require careful placement and sound strategy. Norman Woods, who designed the course, was known for his deftly designed mountain courses. Woods transformed the rugged landscape of bush, water, and rocks into a challenging championship layout. He ensured that it would be a formidable test by including 66 sand traps, 12 water hazards, and elevated, multi-leveled greens. Another of Wood's unique touches is the hundreds of feet of rock walls that sit along the tiered tee boxes at Kokanee Springs Resort Club. A well-played round on this lengthy course can take you 6.5 miles.

This is one of the gems of the Kootneys! This is a great course and very playable. I love this course but it is a little bit out of the way. If you are planning a trip in the area it is a must play.

Despite being a bit of a hike to get there with the ferry ride it is always worth the effort. Kokanee Springs is a big golf course with interesting holes and beautiful vistas. This year the course was green and lush.

This quite Gem is a must play. The conditions of the course were spectacular. The peacefulness made it even better. In a more populated area you would pay well over a $100 to play a track of this calibre. The only down fall was the lack of GPS or booklets for yardage references on where one would really like to target or lay up to. Put this on your list or even make a weekend adventure out of it as there are great deals for stay and play vacations.

The panoramic surroundings and the course make it an eyecandy experience. The course itself, the reason you are there, is enjoyable to play because of the fairway/greens condition being so well maintained. My wife and I are weekend golfers and were fortunate that the day we played was relatively quiet and we were able to enjoy our pace. The golfers behind us must have felt the same as when we signaled for them to play through, they declined.<br/> Overall just a great afternoon at a "have-to-come-back" to play again. This is the third time that we have done the distance to play this course and will do so again.
