Opened in 2011, Wildstone Golf Course may be young but it is quickly gaining a reputation as a must-play. Surrounded by the Canadian Rockies, the course offers spectacular views and dramatic elevation changes throughout. Fisher Peak towers over the golf course, providing beautiful views that are almost too distracting. The incredible landscape provided by the rolling highlands of Cranbrook is just one feature that sets Wildstone apart from other courses in the area. Despite the undulations, the golf course is surprisingly walkable without being a pushover. From the championship tees, the layout plays to a lengthy 7,100 yards and provides a formidable test for even the most seasoned golfers. The forward tees are still approachable for beginners though. There are also extensive practice facilities available at Wildstone Golf Course including a large putting green, a chipping green, and an expansive driving range.

Terrific

What a great course! Generous fairways, huge greens in excellent condition. Lots off combo tees for all golfers so very playable for any handicap. Great views of mountains and valley, lots of elevation changes but course is still walkable

Wildstone GC

There was a 1.5 hour frost delay on the morning of play.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a course which is surrounded by mountain scenery and only two weeks into the golf season, it was actually in pretty good playing condition. Stately pine trees line most of the fairways, giving the impression that the course is more mature than it is.

The rolling fairways are wide and plush, the rough very forgiving, the greens enormous and players should note that more than a few have significant slopes on them. Very pleased that they were rolling exceptionally well. If you love bunkers, there are plenty of very good bunkers on this course. The par 3, 12th is the only hole where water could come into play.

The course seemed to be playing long for some reason as I found myself coming up one club short on many approach shots. Played with two members, Doug and Don who were great company. Holes 4 and 5 stand out.

Overrated but still good

When playing a Scoregolf top 59 course you usually can’t go wrong. Wildstone is #29 and is a great track. However neighboring Shadow Mountain #42 is a far superior course. The design is better, the conditioning was slightly better while we were there, and the views are not comparable. But like I said Wildstone is still a great track, but if you only have one day in Cranbrook play Shadow Mountain hands down!

Nice course, great conditions

Played Wildstone on our Kootenay golf trip. Best
greens we putted on. Tee to green not overly difficult.
But, watch out for the greens! Far too many 'buried
animals' and undulations on some of the greens.
The average golfer is going to not only 3 putt, but
4 putt some of these greens :-( ! Mr. Player, or who
ever did these greens got a little carried away. I
would still play the course again, and recommend
playing it, but be prepared to struggle putting
these greens. Great Practice area as well!

Great course, excellent value on golfnow, slow play behind tournament

Love this course, great condition, and can't beat getting the good price on GolfNow. Unfortunately, we caught up to a ladies tournament and the gals were in no particular hurry. Turned out to be a little over 5 hour round, longer than we expected. Need more choices for staff rating, I would have rated it ok, neither poor nor wonderful, but selected super friendly rather than dismissive as no other choices were available.

Take a walk on the Wild side!

In good condition for first full year of operation. Can make it as difficult as you please depending on tee box selection. And compared with other courses in area, value is excellent.
