Shuswap National's (formerly known as Canoe Creek Golf Course) unique design brings you a bit of the British Isles, offering more than 7,000 yards of open fields, grass-faced bunkers and striking water features including creeks, waterfalls, fountains and natural marshes. Fescue defines many of the fairways at Shuswap National. The course welcomes both walkers and riders; it features grass-style cart paths that blend with the natural feel of the area. Dave Barr's first signature course, Shuswap National is well known for its immaculate hybrid A4 bentgrass greens, which are open, accessible and very receptive to approach shots, but challenge with subtle undulations.

Better every year

We had not played Canoe Creek for a few years and were pleased to see what good shape it is in. The greens on the front nine were lightning fast. The back nine had been punched so were a little slower. There are a couple of holes that are a little unfair to a first time player but once you know the course layout they are part of the challenge and fun to tackle.

A thinking person's course

A good layout in good condition. What I like most about it is the need to think out your strategy on the tee and select the appropriate club instead of just automatically pulling out the driver every time.

Great Value, Inspiring Golf

Truly enjoyed the variety of holes on the course. Appreciated the outstanding conditions and the opportunity to play those interesting greens that are typical of mountain courses where the breaks may deceive you when the entire green is tilted a certain way. Trust the feel of your feet!

Very scenic golf course

Canoe Creek is a beautiful course, it was not very busy the day we played so we (twosome) were able to play 18 holes in 3:30 hours.
The golf course is very well maintained and the staff in the pro shop were friendly.

Lots of Challenges

This course was in great shape. It would be an advantage to have played the course several times as there are many hidden twists and hazards. Pars are hard to come by, greens are tough to hold.

Ok

Nice enough course. Greens are excellent. Tee boxes are average. Make sure you have a yardage tool with you. Couple of blind tee shots. Bunkers on some holes are not in great shape and need work. Overall plays at a decent pace. Not in the top 20 courses by any standard but overall a good value.

Canoe Creek rating

Greens and fairways excellent. A short but very challenging course. 5 blind holes a couple of tempting doglegs, but I recommend sticking to the fairways as I lost 5 balls trying to take some shortcuts. Lots of fescue, water and a few cavernous sand traps. A fun and challenging course..par 72. From white Tees rating 68 slope 123.
