This review is about the golf course only: My husband and I stayed in Balfour for 2 weeks this July, the home for the Kootenay Ferry dock. As this was a golf vacation, we wanted to golf across the lake at Kokanee Springs so we hopped on the free ferry, drove about 15 minutes to find the course and had an absolutely fabulous day of worry free golf on a beautiful lay out. The holes which incorporate the creek are a challenge, but lots of fun..if you know they are coming up.
The practice range is excellent with 2 chipping areas and full driving distance range. The only odd thing about the course lay out is that the restaurant is down the hill from the pro shop and they want you to bring up your cart right after the round (within 30 minutes of completing the last hole) which is not convenient if you want to have a drink and something to eat. They say someone will take you up and down the hill, but again, not convenient. The course is in great shape, interesting, has wonderful views and the staff is very accommodating. This course is an absolute 'must play" course and the 35 minute ferry ride across the lake is the icing on the cake.More
