Golf is one of the most popular activities in the Kootenays!
In the Nelson area, there are four courses each offering breathtaking views and varying degrees of difficulty.
Granite Pointe Golf club is a full 18 hole course located just outside downtown Nelson. A scenic, and challenging course, Granite offers some of the most spectacular views of Nelson and the surrounding peaks.
Castlegar Golf Club is located 30 minutes west of the Alpine and is also open to the public. To the north, a scenic 30-minute drive up the lake you’ll find the Balfour Golf Club. It is a dazzling Les Furber-designed course that will keep you on your game. Across from Balfour in cosy Crawford Bay, lies the Kokanee Springs course. A traditional Robert Trent Jones design, Kokanee is well worth the trip.
