Carved out of the sunny benchlands at the base of Mounts Peter and Paul, Sun Rivers Championship Golf Course is one of the few “true” desert courses in Canada. Designed by celebrated golf course architect Graham Cooke and Wayne Carleton, Sun Rivers is the essence of exceptional golf; offering dramatic elevation changes, sagebrush, natural sand dunes, classic bunkering, wide bentgrass fairways, gently contoured greens and majestic vista

Along the lower slopes of Mount Peter, the Sun Rivers Golf Resort wanders through an established residential community. If you're up to a challenging round of golf, Sun Rivers will give you a run for your money. With rolling fairways, nicely contoured bunker complexes, big putting surfaces, great routing, elevation changes and fantastic views of the Thompson Valley. Two memorable holes on the course are Holes 14 and 17.

I joke about the houses, but Seriously. Houses...on. every hole!

I had a second shot on a par 5. I cut it over a 30ft concrete retaining wall, over a backyard, hit that green for a eagle putt. The house was for sale so... i don't think they mind.

Overall a tight smaller course. Im surprised with the 72 par. It seemed smaller, but hey, chances to score abundant! I tonne of blind tee shots. There was a crazy downhill hole. We played it way wrong! shoulda just crushed a 3 wood down the pipe, find it down there later. But i layed up. weak play.

Overall challenging, i gave an average rating mainly because i was frustrated most of the time playing. I didn't know where to shoot. what club equals 65yrds downhill. and the friggen houses everywhere. construction noise. very busy roads weave through the course. but i will play it again if i get the chance.

good job.
