Golden Golf Club is surrounded by British Columbia's untouched wilderness

GOLDEN, British Columbia, Canada -- Golden Golf Club is tucked away in the Columbia Valley, nestled between the Rockies on one side and the Purcell Mountains on the other.

Surrounded by untouched wilderness, the golf course's rugged terrain was also carefully preserved. Mature trees line nearly every hole and water also has a prominent presence throughout the course. Meandering creeks and ponds accent the landscape and there are also several holes routed along the banks of the Columbia River.

The first nine was built in 1986 by Bill Newis and was later joined by a second nine holes designed by Les Furber. Despite being designed at different times and by different architects, the two nines blend seamlessly to provide a player-friendly golf course that is challenging but fair.

The par-4 11th hole is the course's signature, known both for its views and its degree of difficulty. It overlooks the rushing waters of Holt Creek and has a breathtaking mountain backdrop. Don't let the views distract too much though, since this tricky hole features a tree-lined fairway and a green that slopes from back to front.

With towering pine trees separating most of the holes at Golden Golf Club, you'll seldom see another group. That doesn't necessarily mean you'll have the course all to yourself. With moose, elk, eagles and bears, wildlife usually comes into play. But while you might be easily distracted by the mountain vistas or your four-legged followers, the golf course has teeth, too.
