Golf in Salmon Arm is as much a visual as a physical experience.
Four courses in and around the city provide non-stop mountain and lake views and award-winning layouts to challenge every level.
Salmon Arm Golf Club
Score Golf magazine rates Salmon Arm Golf Club among the top 50 courses in Canada and readers of Pacific Golf Magazine have rated it #1 in British Columbia.
The links-style course follows the contours of the mountainside 3.2km/2mi south of downtown. It provides 18 holes of championship play (6738 yards/par 72) plus an executive 9-hole course (1883 yards/par 30).
Fairways lined with mature fir and pine trees and no residential development give a game here the feel of a walk in nature. But the course is demanding, requiring careful club selection on approach shots and skilled putting on the many two-tier greens.
