Located an hour’s drive east of Kamloops, on the northern shores of Little Shuswap Lake, the Talking Rock Golf Resort is a new millennium development on the Little Shuswap Indian Band Reserve that offers visitors the chance to golf in a wonderfully natural setting and sample some Native Indian cuisine in The Quaaout Lodge.

Opened to the public in 2007, this Graham Cooke design winds its way through heavily forested terrain, culminating in a terrific 18th home hole that runs back to the lodge along the edge of the lake. Golfers needn’t worry about intrusive housing here as fairways rise and fall across a gently undulating landscape in complete isolation from the outside world.

On the front nine, feature holes include the 8th and 9th, which lie on either side of an attractive pond whilst on the inward half, the 15th is a contender for signature hole on the property. Golfers play this wonderful par three from an elevated tee position, taking aim at a heavily sand-protected green that’s perched on the hillside overlooking the lake.

Talking Rock Resort motto suggests “Hear the legend...Feel the spirit…” Nestled along the shores of Little Shuswap Lake, this spectacular piece property is steeped in the native traditions that soothe the soul. This Cooke Carleton International designTalking Rock Golf Course - Photo by reviewer is well forested and offers tremendous elevation changes, large greens, and wide fairways with lots of bunkers. Fortunately for me, the sand is extremely consistent. Hole # 7 is Talking Rock’s signature hole, a downhill double dogleg par 5 with a bear-shaped grass inset carved into the fairway bunker. Holes #14 and 15 offer the best views of Little Shuswap Lake. The 14th is an uphill par four with an awesome view from the green while the 15th is a downhill par three with the lake in the background. Hole #18 is a tight par four that plays all along the lake with the sandy beach as your lateral hazard. Talking Rock is located 45 minutes east of Kamloops. Stay and Play rates are available at Quaaout Lodge. To read the complete article on Golf in Kamloops British Columbia visit:
