There are three nine-hole golf courses – Lacarva Golf Course, Wells Gray Golf Course, and Chinook Cove Golf Course – in the Clearwater area.
Each of these 9-hole layouts tests the course management skills of even the most experienced golfers. For an 18-hole challenge, head to Sun Peaks Golf Course, 111km/69mi from Clearwater.
Lacarya Golf Course
The Lacarya Golf Course is situated next to a popular RV park, 5km/3mi South of Clearwater on Hwy 5. The challenge at this course is keeping an eye on the ball: the mountainous terrain and high country wilderness is amazingly distracting. The 2625m/2871yd course runs along the flat valley bottom, and has a practice area with sand, putting, and driving facilities. Rental golf clubs, and pull and power carts are available at the course.
