Where2Golf says: 

Greywolf Golf Course: Located high in the Purcell Mountains, Greywolf is laid out on pine-clad slopes that sit below the Purcell's rocky peaks. With a clubhouse elevation of 3,800 feet and an elevation change across the course of over 300 feet, golfers can be forgiven for thinking they have been on a roller-coaster ride through the mountains. But Doug Carrick's handsome layout has little in common with the genre of mountain courses that are awkwardly squeezed onto uncompromising and unsuitable terrain. Far from it. Greywolf is an absolute belter, with a succession of excellently crafted and gloriously scenic holes, and a par-3 to die for.

Here at Greywolf, Carrick's two nine-hole loops present a fair and immensely scenic challenge for all golfers to enjoy. And in the middle of the front-nine is an absolute gem. If jaw-dropping "wow factor" holes are what spread the fame of top golf courses, then Greywolf has one of Canada's best - the infamous "Cliffhanger". Whether attempted from the tips (200 yards) or the more forgiving 155-yard forward tees, the 6th hole is simply stunning, one of the world's truly great par-3s. The green is perched atop a rocky pedestal. All around it are sheer cliffs. Behind it beautifully forested slopes stretch up to a lofty mountain summit. The 360-degree views from the green outdo even those from the tee.

Before reaching "Cliffhanger", the opening trio of holes, two par-4s and a 5, involve a steady ascent from the clubhouse to the highest part of the course. The 4th and 5th bring you part-way downhill again.

The pick of the holes in Greywolf's stunning collection are found on the front-nine, although the mischievous par-3 15th played over water, and the plunging par-4 11th protected by a glacier-blue pond, also deserve a special mention. Needless to say roads and intrusive housing play no part here; the ski chalets at the course's lower elevations complement rather than detract from this alpine golfing feast.

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