Tobiano Golf Course stretches across more than 1,000 acres of rugged terrain located at the heart of British Columbia's interior. Situated on the site of the historic Six Mile Ranch, a famous cattle ranch known for its Red Angus breed, the golf course offers a golfing experience unlike any other. It's the highest-ranking public golf course in B.C. and it's the sixth best public course in all of Canada. The beautiful landscape and its natural features inspired the Thomas McBroom design. McBroom also utilized the stunning views of the lakes and mountains that stretch from every direction. Notable holes include the no. 1 handicap hole, the intimidating par-5 eighth, and the trio of holes beginning with the fourth, all of which are par 4s. Tobiano is a golf course that is challenging from the intimidating first tee to the undulating green on the final hole.

Excellent practice range and short game putting areas. The course layout follows the terrain and it looks like there wasn't much earth moving in the design. Nice views to the lake from all the holes and excellent course conditions. Some challenging forces carries but for the most part a fair layout. The only hole I thought was over the top was number 8 with the forced carry over the barranca and then everything funnels to the right. The service in the pro shop was top shelf and the starter was most helpful. Definitively a course to replay and recommend.

The first round was a little frustrating with blind shots, sloping fairways and a GPS cart that did more than give layout and constant yardage; it kept you in line but provided a cooler and ball and club cleaner as well. The cart is included and we saw no one walking.

The second day with some familiarity was great. The lake views throughout the round are beautiful and the condition of the on the fairways is better than most courses keep their greens. The greens were very challenging but the surfaces were impeccable.There are 4 shots across canyons for a challenge.

A course that I had wanted to play for a long time; but time and cost for greens fees was more than I wanted to spend.

With Golf Now I was able to have an afternoon t- time on my day off and the price was great. Great to have some time before starting, to go to the range, unlimited balls. Courtesy bottle of water in the ice box on the cart. An N95 dust mask would have been a nice touch, Ha Ha. It was smokey due to wild fires this year.

For the first 9 the gps was not working for us, so got stuck with no cart power once, no signage on the course and the score card was without a map. So got instructions/clarifications for the 2nd 9. First nine was was a challenge without the gps. The second 9 holes were easier to follow than the first but I would like to try Tobiano again after being better prepared for the challenge. It is not for the novice golfer if playing off the longer tee boxes. Bring some extra balls, although I found more than I lost. After 9 holes the lunch special was very welcoming and tasty with very quick service. I'm sure the views would have been great, if not for the smoke.

In my humble opinion , tobiano is one of the most beautiful golf courses you could ever play . Course conditions and maintenance are second to none ( I've played a lot of courses in the Phoenix area ) let alone the stunning views . Driving on Tobiano's fairways is like driving on other courses greens . A fantastic golf experience .

A course can be the best in the world but if you play is over a five hour round, it doesn't matter how good it is. The fun is lost - his messes up your momentum and ruins an otherwise good game.

The course itself is very nice. It was in great shape - very nice greens.

There was a Marshall on the course for the first few holes then we did not see him again. I like the philosophy that you annoy four people and move them along or you annoy the whole course. Obviously this is not the case at this course.

We play a lot of fantastic courses - Brandon, Pinehurst, Chambers Bay, Ballibunion, whistling Straits, Cabot and the list goes on. We will not come back to Tobiano. The pace of play was ridiculously slow but also we were told the manager would call us, I left my card and he never did. That was very poor customer service.

There are a lot of fabulous courses in the world. We will stick to the ones where I can get in a reasonably paced round.

This is one of the most beautiful golf courses I've ever seen. The views are incredible, and the course is in immaculate shape.

I've played here a few times, and when the wind whips up... it's almost unplayable... but you still play anyway because it is such an amazing track!

Put this one on your bucket list...
