Fall Golf Amidst the Largest Eagle Gathering in the World
(Harrison Mills, British Columbia) Another secret revealed about Pretty Estates Resort - home to Sandpiper Golf Course, Rowena’s Inn on the River and River’s Edge Restaurant.
Although glorious anytime of the year, there is no prettier place to golf than at Sandpiper Golf Course.
When the forest greens turn their splendid hues to scarlet, rust, gold and orange it is so breathtaking that golfers often find it hard to concentrate on the game.
Fall also invites extraordinary wildlife viewing.
Each fall, black bears lumber down towards the Harrison River as the salmon spawn, which also attracts thousands of bald eagles.
“Sandpiper Golf Course is part of the winter homeland for 5,000 -10,000 bald eagles -- the world’s largest concentration of eagles ever witnessed as they forage, fight and feast on the record salmon runs in the Harrison River,” says David Hancock, Hancock Wildlife Foundation Bald Eagle Biologist.
Sandpiper Golf Course is a resort-style course situated on a historic piece of land alongside the tranquil waters of the Harrison River.
It’s ‘forest golfing’ at its finest with two distinctly different environments — the open fairways alongside the river and the quiet serenity amongst the ancient 180 ft. Douglas Firs.

The 18-hole year-round golf course is gently sloped and home to the signature Sasquatch Footprint.
