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 design 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: http://golftravelandleisure.com/2013/08/21/golf-in-kamloops-bc/.
