New Hazelton, Golf

The Kispiox Valley, located near Hazelton, is home to the annual Kispiox Valley Rodeo, the legendary Kispiox Valley Music Festival, world renowned steelhead and salmon fishing, spectacular scenery, and a golf course?
Last night, I had my very first golfing experience at a golf course in the Kispiox Valley called Mossy Acres. Mossy Acres is nestled beside the Kispiox River with breath taking 360 degree views of mountains, glaciers, and an abundance of cotton wood trees.
My friend and I arrived at the relaxed golf course, signed the guest book, placed our $5 each in the Tupperware bin and Tee’d off! We played the nine holes and I thoroughly enjoyed my first golfing experience and I must say I think I’m hooked.
There was no better place for me to learn how to play golf as for the first 6 holes we had the course to ourselves and I could swing and miss the golf ball without being too much of an embarrassment to my golfing mentor. Between the stunning scenery and the utter fun of the game, I cannot wait for my next Mossy Acres golfing adventure!
Mossy Acres is located in the Kispiox Valley, past the rodeo grounds, across 17 mile bridge, and 5 minutes down poplar park road. Look for the sign, it will be on your right!
