Par-3 15th hole selected as one of the ‘Great Holes of the Northwest’
Federal Way, Wash. – In the upcoming November issue of Pacific Northwest Golfer magazine, the par-3 15th hole at Talking Rock Golf Resort in Chase, B.C. is recognized as one of the “Great Holes of the Northwest,” one of just four holes selected each year by the Northwest’s largest and longest-running golf publication.
Measuring anywhere from 152 to 210 yards, this downhill par-3 marks the return of the layout to the shores of Little Shuswap Lake and provides spectacular scenery for the finishing holes.
Guarded by bunkers left and right, the mounded green allows for shots to run up onto the surface, while shots hit long will roll into the surrounding fescue.
Talking Rock will be the site of the 2015 BC Men’s Mid-Amateur and Mid-Master Championships. It has previously hosted the 2009 Pacific Northwest Master-40 Championship.
Talking Rock Golf Resort is an amenity of the Quaaout Lodge & Spa. Both are owned and operated by the Little Shuswap Indian Band. The golf course opened in 2007 and was designed by renowned Canadian architects Graham Cooke and Wayne Carlton.
The course and the lodge are located along the shore of Little Shuswap Lake, northeast of Kamloops, B.C. Visit www.quaaoutlodge.com for more information.
