SLOCAN LAKE GOLF COURSE
Often considered the "Jewel of the Kootenays", the Slocan Lake Golf Club is nestled amidst the pristine waters of the Slocan Lake. The Selkirk Mountain range provides a picture perfect backdrop for those who wish to relax on the deck of the clubhouse and take in the scenery. The course is located 1km north of New Denver on Hwy 6. Within 1 hours drive of six other golf courses, providing an opportunity for a golf tour holiday.
Slocan Lake Golf Club is a public 9 hole course of modest length, 2682 yards. The challenge lies in the narrow fairways which are framed by enormous evergreens. It is exceptionally well groomed and is suitable for golfers of all abilities, but does demand precise shots. The course is an enjoyable walk over lush, level fairways. A round takes approximately 1 hour, 45 minutes. You have two choices when teeing off #1, drive the green (283 yards), or lay up to avoid two ponds below. Bunkers come into play on holes 2, 4, and 9. All three bunkers are just off the greens, so keep that sand wedge in your bag just in case. OB markers are located on the perimeter of the course, so a straight drive is imperative.
The Golf Club was established in 1927 and was officially formed as a 9 hole golf course in 1933. In 1951 the society know now as the "Slocan Lake Golf Club" was formed. The area is rich in history and has many local attractions including museums, heritage homes and lost mines. Vintage photographs and golf paraphernalia, such as antique wooden shaft clubs, are on display in the clubhouse.
Slocan Lake Golf Club prides itself on the friendly environment, natural beauty and a great game. Also tee times are not required. Enjoy!
