Tips for playing Castlegar Golf Course

Leave your approach shot below the pin to master this course

by Karen Kornelsen

While playing the Castlegar Golf Club, a good rule of thumb is not to go long over any green. If at all possible, leave your approach shot below the pin, as most greens slope from back to front. Several greens are elevated, making club selection tricky. Some shots will require a little extra to carry to the green.

Although some of the par-fives are reachable in two, strategically placed bunkers both in the fairway and greenside make laying up a smarter play. With that said, keeping tee shots between the treeline is vital to scoring low on this course. The three starting holes and three finishing holes on the front nine provide some of the most challenging shots in golf. The back nine, though more forgiving, will still challenge all levels of golfers.
