The West Kootenay region definitely has its own flavor, and the golf courses and golf resorts throughout this part of British Columbia are no different. There are kid-friendly municipal courses of nine holes and there are championship golf resorts where golf carts whir quietly down immaculately groomed cart paths. The one thing they have in common is the natural beauty surrounding them on all sides in this well-treed part of the province with its sparkling lakes and mountain views. There are nearly two dozen different places to golf, so make a tour of it on the winding roads, or find a place to stay lakeside and get to know the local course.
