Where2Golf says: 

Eagle Ranch Golf Resort: Spectacularly located on ancient bluffs above the Columbia River and Windermere Lake, the golf course at Eagle Ranch is the centrepiece of a distinctive, master-planned resort community. The resort's high-end vacation rental properties blend with their natural woodland surroundings, never intruding on the excellently designed golf course.

With the Purcell Mountains across the river to the west and the Canadian Rockies towering up to the east, every hole enjoys a visually arresting backdrop. Good-width, partly tree-lined fairways weave their way through well-spaced avenues of pine and spruce. Notwithstanding trees aplenty, there's also a feeling of space and openness from the tee. On your approach shots, stylish bunkering and slick run-off areas await greenside.

Crossing daunting ravines and taking on a couple of blind drives adds to the challenges on the more undulating back-nine, which builds to a memorable finish. An almost links-style trio of holes, from the par-4 13th to the par-5 15th, bring small ponds into play (also the case at the par-3 2nd). The signature, short par-3 16th demands a carry over a ravine to a rock-fronted green, while another ravine needs to be crossed from the tee at the par-4 17th.

One of the most spectacular views to be found anywhere in Canadian golf awaits at the final green. Framed by mountains all around, the wide Columbia River with its swathes of attractive wetlands can be seen joining into the wonderfully scenic Windermere Lake. Although difficult to tear yourself away from this view, the same stunning panorama can also be enjoyed from the clubhouse.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
