Ben Hogan once said, "The only thing a golfer needs is more daylight." It's a fair point and for the most part we couldn't agree more with him. With one exception: we can't imagine Ben Hogan ever played golf in beautiful British Columbia during the Fall. Because while daylight hours may indeed be starting to fade slightly earlier in the evening, the beauty of the surroundings, the crispness of the air, and the beautiful Fall light before, during and after your round more than make up for it.
It's a magical time in BC - as anyone who has ever been here - and more specifically golfed here - during the season of plenty can attest to. And make no mistake, there is still plenty of great golf to be played during the season of plenty here in BC. Especially if you're smart about it and stay right on the course at one of the BC golf resorts featured below. That way you don't waste a minute of the daylight hours you do have, going from room to tee in mere seconds. Don't let the sun go down on your golf season without one last hurrah - take advantage of one of these Fall golf resort getaways and go down swinging.

This is a truly unique BC golf resort getaway. “Hear the legend…feel the spirit” at Talking Rock Resort and Quaaout Lodge. Owned by the Little Shuswap Indian Band, the culturally rich Talking Rock Resort blends age-old Indigenous traditions with classic hotel-style amenities, golf and gourmet dining.
Unfortunately, Quaaout Lodge & Spa at Talking Rock Golf Resort lost most of their guest rooms to a structural fire on Sunday, May 22, 2022. Fortunately, no one was injured and a large part of the facility was preserved, including golf shop, restaurant and spa. Fortunately, the Band will be rebuilding the lodge as "the heart of the community." In the meantime, we ask that you consider supporting the community by booking a round of golf either directly or as part of your packaged golf vacation. Kukstsémc (thank you).
