Elk Valley

As many golfers know, tucked in the southeastern corner B.C. is a narrow valley carved by the Elk River that is home to the mountain communities of Elkford, Sparwood and Fernie. Though world-renowned for skiing, the Elk Valley shines in summer as home to golf courses nestled beneath the stunning peaks. Golfing in the Elk Valley is a pursuit with its own challenges: you may have to share the greens with some of the wildlife that makes its home in this place often called the Serengeti of the North. Tee time can mean the beginning of an adventure as you follow the contours of well-designed golf resorts as they hug the towering mountains.
