Best Rated Golf Course – Talking Rock
Heralded as one of the best golf courses in Canada — #19 Public Course in Canada 2019, by PGA Of Canada — Talking Rock Golf Course is the creation of Graham Cooke and Wayne Carlton, two Canadian architects that embraced the heritage of the people of the Skywlax territory. As an homage to Skywlax — a Secwepemc word that translates to ‘black bear’ — hole #7 features a grass version of this beloved creature.
With green fees starting at $29.00, Talking Rock Golf Course at Quaaout Lodge offers packages that will have you teeing off in no time. However, if you are new to the golf scene, then you may want to attend the on-site Golf Academy where you will be paired up with your own designated PGA of Canada professional to better your swing and pick up a few times, just for you.
