With its big blue skies, long summer days, and average summer temperatures ranging from 10˚C/50˚F to 20˚C/68˚F, Fort St. John is a golfer's dream.
Fort St. John's northern latitude provides extended daylight hours, allowing golfers to tee off as last as 7pm in June and July at any of three local golf courses.
Lake Point Golf & Country Club
Lake Point Golf & Country Club has a beautifully manicured golf course lined with aspen trees, and set along the shores of Charlie Lake. Beginners and experts alike enjoy this challenging 18-hole course, which is surrounded by beautiful views of the lake and surrounding wildlife, including numerous songbirds. The country club features a pro shop with equipment rentals, and offers Canadian Professional Golfers Association (CPGA) lessons. Hungry golfers can satisfy their appetites at the on-site licensed clubhouse restaurant, or at Jackfish Dundees Pub, less than a 10-minute drive away.
