Dawson Creek, Golf

Every year when our family comes to visit, we take a day to play golf. I am not an avid golfer, but I do enjoy a round with friends on a beautiful day and Dawson Creek and area has 2 great courses to enjoy.
The Dawson Creek Golf and Country Club is nestled in the junction of the Hart and Alaska Highway. It is beautiful spot just minutes from the heart of the city. This 18-hole, par-72 course is well groomed and is enjoyed by visitors and residents alike. There is a pro shop, a driving range, rentals, restaurant and lounge.
The last time we played there, it was a beautiful warm sunny day and we shared the course with a small herd of deer. They were obviously used to people, because although they kept their distance, they didn't leave. Our visitors live in a city so really enjoyed this added bonus. Many photos were taken that day.
There is also a great par-36, 9-hole course a short 10 miles out of town on the Alaska Highway. It's called Farmington Fairways and is really popular with people who want to relax and stay for a couple of days at the on-site RV park & campground. This is a really pretty spot in a very natural setting. Farmington has a 300-yard driving range, a pro shop, cart and club rentals and a fully licensed clubhouse. The campground and RV park has everything a traveler could need/want.
As a resident/host, I am so proud of what we have to share.
