The Point is one of two 18-hole courses at Copper Point Golf Club and it’s significantly longer and tougher than its little sister, The Ridge. Opened for play in 2004 and fashioned by Gary Browning, The Point pitches and rolls through the foothills of the Kootenay Rockies.
The Point extends to just over 6,800 yards from the back markers, playing to a par of 70, with holes set out as two returning nines. The inward half plays significantly shorter than the outward half, thanks in no small part to having three par threes and only one par five on this circuit.
Notable holes on the layout include the first of the par fives, rated stroke index 1, at the 538-yard 3rd, along with the par four 8th, which pinches in considerably as the fairway approaches the green. On the back nine, the par four 18th is a formidable finisher, swinging right around water on the way to the home green.
