Summer golf getaways to Kamloops, BC are the ultimate, crowd-free, total package experiences
From lake shores to cliff sides, Kamloops’ distinct landscapes offer unique challenges for all skill levels. Home to top-ranked courses Tobiano and Talking Rock, Kamloops boasts some of the most unique golf layouts in Canada—eight in total—and with plenty of annual sunshine, amazing conditions and an eight-month golf season, Kamloops is a premier destination for an unparalleled golf getaway.
Monica Dickinson, director, industry relations + communications, Tourism Kamloops, says golf has been the saving grace, the golden experience that has allowed business networking, staycationers, and destination golf enthusiasts to escape for a day trip or overnight to relaxing recreational experiences over the past several weeks.
Kamloops is a 3.5-hour drive from Vancouver, which means a two- or three-day getaway is totally within reach, and being an easy day trip from Vancouver, it is complemented by great value.
“At its core, golf is a super social game,” Dickinson says. “Our courses have taken necessary steps to ensure a safe, approachable experience, complementing Kamloops’ DNA where golf is far from pretentious and open to all abilities.”
You can swing without crowds, the dress code is relaxed and the vibe is friendly. Kamloops golf courses include nearly 1,200 metres of elevation change, where the dramatic topography illustrates a myriad of panoramic views. Golden fescue-lined tee boxes, awe-inspiring fairways and scenic bent-grass greens leave every golfer with lasting memories and a yearning to play again. Golfers are passionate in Kamloops for good reason.
