Explore BC's Hidden Golf Gem: The Shuswap
Golfing the Shuswap region means embracing a rather unique brand of water hazard: gathering enough energy to leave the luxury of your houseboat and hit the turf. It is well worth the effort though, because the golf courses here offer incredible value for money on some amazing golf courses.
The Shuswap, long known and loved in Canada for Shuswap Lake houseboating, is perhaps lesser known for its golf courses. That is about to change though. More and more people are discovering this hidden jewel of a golf area.
The nearby centres of Kamloops and Vernon offer easy access points to the Shuswap, and once you've reached your destination you will find golf which routinely offers jaw-dropping lake views, interesting elevation changes, lush turf conditions and a mild climate, complemented by championship layouts designed for golfers of all skill levels.
Another unique offering of the Shuswap is the ability to actually dock your houseboat at your golfing destination and take the course shuttle up to the first tee!
Whether you're houseboating or not, however, the Shuswap is well worth a visit: five championship courses and a number of 9-hole options - all in breathtakingly peaceful surroundings without any crowding - make this a must-visit golfing destination in British Columbia.
