Great all around course

Purchased a VIP membership this year, golf 1-2 times on the average per week, rarely have a issue booking a day or 2 in advance . Carts are good although the course is easily walkable. Staff friendly and helpful, cart girl friendly and always has a smile. Took some lessons earlier this year ( took some a few years ago as well) Bill is quite a good teacher ,spends the time with you to make sure you are doing it correctly from the start. I like golfing Dunes ,for the money you can't beat it ( VIP membership deal). Look forward to going soon.

Enjoyable round on a links style course. The course is in great condition, although I found the greens slower than expected. This is the second time I have played here, and would come back again.

OK Course - Friendly Staff

This course has lots of man-made mounds and man made rolling fairways which make it imperative to keep the ball in the fairway and even when you do, you can have awkward side hill and downhill lies. There is lots of tall grass that catches wayward shots and can slow down play. The greens were in great shape and the fairway conditions were OK. The staff was very nice. These types of courses with all the extreme man-made terrain are not my cup of tee.

Man-made mounding a bit of overkill

The Dunes was probably my least favorite of the six courses I played in Kamloops. That's not entirely a knock on the course, but more a testament to the depth and quality of the golf in the region.
Man-made mounding defining fairways and separating holes just isn't the style of architecture I'm looking to play. To me, it symbolizes the artificial design characteristics that failed golf in the 1990s-2000s before minimalism made a triumphant return.
That said, there's nothing wrong with this course. It's perfectly playable and enjoyable. For the price point - generally less than $50 Canadian - and what you get condition-wise, it's actually a strong value. I'm guessing that's why most golfers give it four and five stars.

Great day despite the mosquitoes

The course played well. I played well. My only negative is the condition of the on course washrooms. Dirty, unkept, weeds in the flower pots, weeds at the entrances. Unfortunate to me as the mark in this area.

Slow

We started 20 minutes late. The course Marshall didn’t start anyone on time. We were bottlenecked all day. We left after 14 holes because we were already over the 4 hour mark. Price was fine. Course was in decent shape. Greens were fine, a couple with some winter stuff on them still. People were driving carts on the greens and there was no thought to pace of play.

The Dunes at Kamloops

Quite a scenic course surrounded by the hills of the Thompson Valley and running along the banks of the Thompson River. Nice to be greeted by friendly staff, a well stocked pro shop and a restaurant with a great menu.

I arrived mid morning and found the parking lot starting to fill with classic cars. What a bonus, came for a round of golf and a car show appeared.

A great opening hole, a par 4, dogleg left into a green protected by a water hazard and tucked amongst small dunes. The fairways are framed by small rolling dunes, a few water hazards and a sprinkling of both greenside and waste bunkers. The greens were receptive and rolled smoothly at a nice pace.

Opened in 1997, the course has its own challenges and golfers of all abilities will enjoy themselves.
