Christina Lake Golf Course
The Christina Lake golf course was originally established as a nine hole course back in 1962. Twenty four years later in 1986, Les Furber of Golf Design Services, undertook the courses’ expansion to 18 holes, stretching the course out to 6785 yards. Furber’s signature architecture of elevated tees, and strategically bunkered greens and fairways provide a good challenge to all golfers. The greens are multi-tiered and there are water hazards featured around 4 holes.
A member of the Kootenay Golf Trail, this is the first Canadian golf course to feature black sand in all the bunkers. Considered a top 25 golf course in British Columbia, Christina Lake’s signature hole is their par 3 9th hole, measuring 215 yards from the tips. The elevated tee box stands above a green bordered by two sand traps and a large lateral water hazard along its full left side.
Located on the scenic Kettle River, this Kootenay Golf Trail course is surrounded by towering ponderosa pine and fir trees. The backdrop is the beautiful Monashee and Selkirk Mountains. Keep in mind, the course is located within minutes of Christina Lake, said to be the warmest lake in Canada. The course is less than a 1 km from the Cascade-Laurier U.S. border, two hours from Spokane and 2 hours southeast of Kelowna, BC.
