The "dunes" on the course provide tough challenges when you stray; very "links-like" feel to the course.<br/> Nice playability for all golfers.<br/> Great service from all staff; overall, a very pleasant day of golf.

A very relaxing game with challenged just off of the fairways

Long par fives force you to use every club in ur bag

Easy to have a good game

One small drawback is the mosquitos that attack along the river holes

Still a good game

The Dunes is one of my favourite courses and I always enjoy playing there. The one average score I gave above is simply because it’s early in the year and the course is still greening up. Once the temperatures have warmed up, the fairways are growing and the bunkers conditioned I know the course will be in its usual great shape.

Very enjoyable sunny (but cold) day with pleasant playing companions. We were stuck behind some two-somes and a very slow foursome of non or beginner golfers though. The pro shop should always combine groups of two into four, encourage beginners to play from the forward tees, and have course marshals out there to encourage a decent pace of play. We were finally able to play through the beginner group on the back nine, who reluctantly let us through on the 12th.

Hi, Dave. <br/> Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about water on the course is important to us. As we begin 2017, we are working to develop a better way to provide our guest with refreshments. British Colombia has restrictions on water fountains, water coolers, and plain old water on golf courses. These rules, unfortunately, have our hands tied with providing drinks on the course. Our beverage cart does not run on Mondays which keeps this from being a solution for your poor experience. Because of your feedback, we are going to start providing free water bottles during check in on hot days that do not have the beverage cart running. We also want to address where you said the “Course does not allow outside drinks". We do allow outside drinks. We do not allow outside alcoholic beverages. You are welcome to bring your own bottled water, Gatorade, or another refreshment that is alcohol-free. We are glad to see you rated everything else to be great during your game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing The Dunes at Kamloops, we hope to see you again soon.

Greens and fairways were in prime shape - it would be nice if people repaired their ball marks though. The tee boxes were pretty hacked up from a big Tournament that happened on Friday and should be moved asap. It is a shame they cut that par 5 on the back nine in half because of the houses - it was a much stronger hole then. Played the course with a friendly retired couple on carts in less than 3 1/2 hours, so pace of play was ready golf practically. The rest of the holes are a fair test, and quite enjoyable. Friendly staff and players, and a nice summer day with not too much wind, which always comes up after about 2 pm. I highly recommend this course.
