If you’re planning on making a trip to Revelstoke Golf Club, be sure to take the opportunity to enjoy the other activities and sights the town has to offer.

Movie buffs might want to stop by the old courthouse on Second Street. It was featured in the 1999 film Double Jeopardy as the Island County Courthouse. Another cinematic connection for Revelstoke is that it served nearly exclusively as the filming location for the 2001 film The Barber. The British Columbia town kept its name in the film, but was fictionally relocated to become the town of Revelstoke, Alaska.

Slightly out of town you’ll find the historical location of the Last Spike—a satellite branch of the Revelstoke Railway Museum. This site is where the final spike was driven into the ground to complete the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1885.

If you’re looking for a place to take the kids for a day of magic and wonder, look no farther than the Enchanted Forest. This is a storybook adventure spot where kids can get exercise by hiking through the woods while experiencing a variety of interactive displays that will run their imaginations wild into the land of fairytales.

Overall, the town of Revelstoke is home to a passionate community of artists, athletes, business people, adventurers and so much more. Stop for a drink in the coffee shops, learn something at the historical sites, or just experience the natural beauty of the area and you’ll be sure to enjoy your visit.
