Golf is a tremendously popular sport in the West Kootenay. As a result, there are golf courses everywhere. In the Nelson area, you will find three beautiful, yet very different courses that make for a perfect little golf tour. Starting in Nelson, you will find Granite Pointe Golf Club, an eighteen-hole course that tests your ability while at the same time offering spectacular scenery. The view from the 16th tee box alone is worth the price of admission, so don't forget your camera.

Heading up highway 3A along the west arm of Kootenay Lake, to Balfour, brings you to the Balfour Golf Course. This challenging eighteen-hole course is an excellent walking course. The views are

gorgeous as you make your way around, but make sure you stay clear of the trees - they won't help your score.

Also located in Balfour is the Eagle View Golf Course, a par three that's perfect for a practice round to work on your short game. It's also a great course for children who are just learning how to play, and includes a challenging putting area.

After playing at Balfour, it's time to catch the longest free ferry ride in the world over to Kootenay Bay. After a short ten-minute drive to Crawford Bay, you'll discover Kokanee Springs Golf Resort. This PGA rated golf course will test even the best of golfers, and provides spectacular mountain scenery as the back-drop for each hole. A round at Kokanee Springs will be memorable, not only for the great experience, but also for your score.
