“Nice place in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

Although we are not golfers, we stayed at the Kokanee Springs Golf Resort while traveling the International Selkirk Loop. This place caters primarily to golfers, but everyone is welcome. The setting is beautiful and we had a nice view from the balcony in our room. There is very little, if anything, in the way of restaurants in Crawford Bay so we ate at the resort restaurant and found it to be satisfactory. Our room was large and comfortable and had a great shower. Be careful when showering, however, as the tub is very slick and there is no rubber mat. We were surprised that there was no phone in the room, although there was an alarm clock to replace the wakeup call. This wasn't a problem for us, but it could be if you don't have a cell phone or if your phone does not work in Canada. The deadbolt on our room door did not work and there was no iron, ironing board, or in room safe. The beautiful location made up for these small annoyances, and the hotel is only minutes away from the ferry. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

The area is beautiful however the hotel is nothing special for the price. The golf course was not in the best of shape due to rain but was a challenge & quite pretty. The whole resort looks like it is in decline with the bulidings, proshop, washroom, and parking areas not being maintained very well. We went to the restauant for lunch & breakfast & it too was not that great. We wouldn't go back even though it was a Stay and Play special.

I have been going to Kokanee since 1993 and it is my favourite golf course. If you love to play golf and enjoy a high risk, high reward golf course...look no further. The first hole drops 200 feet to the fairway and the 3rd is a drivable par 4 for some. The food, atmosphere is second to none.
There isn't a ton of things to do other than golf and relax...

My parents first started going to Kokanee Springs Golf Resort in the summer of 1973 and our family has not looked back since. Now, 38 years later, it is a calender staple that every year myself, my 3 brothers, our families.... and of course my parents, meet in Kokanne every summer.
In 1973, the course was only about 15 holes, was $2.00 per round, and you payed on an honour system!
Nowadays the course is no longer $2 per round, and there is an actualy human hand to recieve your cash or card, but that doesn't mean the word honour is no longer a part of the experience. The staff (many of whom have been there for years) seem to have a passion and connection for the course that is uncommon, and probably is attributed to the tranquility of the whole Crawford Bay / Kootenay Bay area. They really treat you like its an honour to have you around, and that's an experience I'll never pass up.

What else keeps us coming back year after year? Quiet area, un-obstructed nature, peaceful exsistence, and an absolutely stunning and elegant gem of a golf course.
The whole area never changes much but that is what makes it so great. The course quality is amazingly consistent every year and the artisan community is kind and welcoming. At night it is so silent that you get to experience what quiet sleep really is.

What else can be done outside of the course? An afternoon trip to the secluded and often non-busy beach is perfect. A day trip across the worlds longest free ferry in Kootenay Bay allows you time to explore the selkirk mountain range, the laid-back unique town of Nelson, or the famous Ainsworth Hot Springs. Explore the Artisan Shops along the sleepy highway.

The commerical development of the area has grown but stayed true to maintaining the secluded tranquil feel that makes it so appealing to many.
Almost everyone I know who golfs has been to Kokanee Springs Golf Resort, yet every time you go, you truly feel like you are playing on a hidden gem.
How many places can maintain this quality?

Take the time, do the drive, go to Crawford Bay, play and stay at Kokanee Springs Golf Resort. The experience will speak for itself.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the mountain range, or stay in one of the Big Bend Cottages for a secluded for...

For golfing enthusiast! - Every shot on every hole has to a quality one. No room for error at Kokanee! I've been coming to Kokanee since 1972 and every time I play here, I learn something new about the course. Whether its a week end with the boys or with other couples enjoying the golf school, I can't wait to hit the first tee and what a view it is! Wakes you right up! The resort is first class, well maintained with top of the line houskeeping, the clubhouse staff are courteous, friendly and the food (selction and quality) first class. Wildlife abounds and if you have a sandwich in your cart, protect it on the 11th hole - otherwise while you are putting, a couple of crows will swoop down and take it away!
Look forward to returning to my favorite golf course next year!!

Always a great time! This is an annual trip using the Kokanee 2-4 package. Super deal with great staff, accomodations, food and not to mention the golf is excellent. Really enjoy the hot tub after going 36. Looking forward to next year, especially seeing all the new additions and changes that are happening. Thanks for another fantastic time.
