Hyde Mountain Golf Course boasts a stunning setting thanks to its location within the hills above Mara Lake, with views that span the surrounding mountains and hardwood forests. Les Furber, a well known name in British Columbia golf, designed this challenging layout. You'll be using every club in your bag and you can't afford to take any of the tee shots lightly. The golf course is routed through dense groves of mature trees and across deep ravines that make for some intimidating tee shots. One hole that exemplifies the Hyde Mountain G.C. experience is the par-4 fourth hole. At 483 yards, the yardage may seem strange but you'll understand why it has so much length once you're standing on the tee box, which is perched 200 feet above the fairway. The elevation offers an incredible view but be prepared for a difficult hole from tee to green.

Hyde Mountain in Sicamous, BC is a beautiful track over looking Mara Lake with some gorgeous views. It is a tight tree lined layout with a number of short narrow par 4's and reachable par 5's (if you can navigate the tight fairways). Target golf for certain, with less than driver off a lot of tee's.

Although I love playing them I find that most short par 4's are gimmicky with unnecessarily difficult greens to compensate for the lack of length , and at Hyde there is only one such hole where you hit a blind approach shot to a multi-tiered greent that can see a lot chips and putts finish further from the hole than you started.

All in all a great track that I am excited to play again, especially now that I have played it once and have a better idea where to aim to leave myself in a better position.

I used to houseboat every summer and that is how we came across Hyde Mountain. This course is as challenging as it is beautiful. But bring lots of balls, you will need them if you're not consistent. Trust me! I no longer houseboat but I try my best to get to sicamous once or twice a summer just to play this absolute gem.

It is a great course regardless of if you are paying full price or using one of the Hot Deals.

Challenging holes scattered throughout. Some of the par 4's are drive-able if you're a long hitter. Views of the lake are perfect both on the course and on the patio at the clubhouse.

I find the proximity to Sicamous can draw some lesser skilled tourist golfers that can really slow down play with how challenging the holes are and of course the photo op on the 4th hole.

Either way, its my go to course when I am in Sicamous. I play 3-4 times per week when I am there.

A cool and wet morning left the course nearly empty for us to enjoy at noon as the afternoon dried and warmed up. Some soggy areas on some fairways and winter kill spots on the greens were to be expected but overall the course was in very good condition. views from several holes are spectacular as some have very elevated tee boxes with the lake in the background. Many of the large greens had challenging slopes and tiers. Always enjoy smashing a drive on #4 from way above the landing zone. Fun to play and my wife enjoyed it too. Had to play around a deer on one hole and a marmot watched us tee off on another. Too bad the house boat snack shack wasn't open that day but I'm sure it will be on weekends and in summer. Enjoy.

Great course visually, and staff is very accommodating. We decided to have post game dinner elsewhere but that was only because we tee,d off late this time & sun was going down. But great deck for burgs + bevvies, and the view is top shelf to say the least.

Aside from the beautiful scenic views, the course was in rough shape. The marsh-like fairways, temporary tee boxes and a shared green made for an interesting experience at the course. Hopefully as the seasons goes on the course will be in better shape
