The inaugural design from the drawing board of Canadian professional Dave Barr, the 7,000-yard plus Shuswap National golf course, formerly known as Canoe Creek, represents a stern Salmon Arm challenge.
Since the recent change of ownership over the last few years this has converted this course to an outstanding golf course. New clubhouse, practice facility and course upgrades make this an almost unbeatable course based on the price. The staff in the pro shop are always friendly and welcoming. The food in the clubhouse ranks as one of the best places to eat in the area. 18 holes through tree lined golf holes with varied terrain make this both playable, challenging and enjoyable. A golf course that still demands every club in your bag. A couple courses in the Vernon area (specifically the one named after Fred Couples) could learn a lot from copying this business model especially when it comes to customer relations. Many locals now travel the 25-30 minutes to play here instead of in the local area. Don't miss this if you are in the area.
