There is more than one reason to golf in British Columbia’s Kamloops region – think fantastic warm weather, nearly eight months of the year, spectacular and unique desert scenery broken up by lakes beckoning you to dive in and cool off after a round or three, and home to BC’s friendliest city, Kamloops – also Canada’s Tournament Capital. But it is the quality of the Kamloops Golf Resorts which remains the main reason. Explore Talking Rock & Quaaout Lodge for an incredible experience complete with Indigenous history and culture, or get on top of it all with a trip to Sun Peaks Resort on your next trip to explore BC golf courses.
The Kootenay Rockies offer everything you’d expect from a place dubbed British Columbia’s Mountain Playground. Majestic mountains; pristine rivers, lakes and waterfalls; mineral hot springs; and incredible golfing beneath snow-capped peaks.

Perhaps it’s the dramatic scenery, or it could be the feeling of getting away from it all. Whatever it is, nowhere else will you find a better mountain golf destination than the spectacular Kootenay Rockies with four incredible golf resorts to choose from.
