2 Different Nines

The Front 9 is very much Target Golf. Make's one "Think" & roll with result.
Back 9 was more open & fun to play. 12th. seems out of Sync to rest of layout. 16th. lightens up play as it is a "Grip It & Rip It" Hole. A Carrot or Needle Fun Play!!
Respectfully, we played after a huge downpour so the Rough was long & wiry resulting in some ugly shots out.
We enjoyed the day as had lot's of laugh's.

poor timing

This course is at altitude and so at this time of year it is wetter than at others in the area. Carts weren’t allowed because of the previous rain so you have to be prepared for walking hilly terrain. The weather changes quickly so I was washed out after 6 holes.

Otherwise it is a really nice challenging course but conditions aren’t great so early in the year. The signage is poor and satellite navigation would come in handy for directions to holes let alone yardage.

There are few amenities otherwise like a clubhouse - not sure if this is temporary or not.

The staff is definitely friendly and helpful. Am taking a rain check.

A tale of two cities

The first 9 holes are tight and basically target golf and the second 9 give you a chance to rip with your driver in a more resort golf setting. With there are many amazing vistas and a lot of rolling fairways and greens you may also find yourself with some uneven lies and tricky puts.
The day we played followed an evening rain so the greens were not cut and quite slow.
Pretty limited food and drinks at the starter shack which was also accessible at 10. We got a great rate from Golfnow so we have to say really good value and a pretty enjoyable experience overall.

Sun Peaks Resort GC

The bases of three mountains converge to provide the valley floor that is the home of the Sun Peaks Resort golf course. Leave the driver in the bag on Holes 1 and 2 to avoid going off the rails early in your round. With rolling fairways, contoured greens, sandy bunkers, a few water hazards and great scenery. Sun Peaks can be enjoyed by golfers of all abilities.

Beautiful and serene scenery with

Course could be slightly better maintained, fairways cut tighter, and fringe. Greens were also a little rough
