The best golf getaways feature more than a great game. They’re also about time spent off the links – the après-play with friends exploring the local sights and sharing stories over a delicious one-of-a-kind meal paired with local wine or craft beer.
In other words, everything you’ll find in a spring golf getaway to Kamloops.
Surrounded by hills at the southeast edge of Kamloops Lake, where the South and North Thompson rivers merge, the sunny, southern British Columbia city is perfectly positioned for a golfer’s dream vacay. In fact, whether you opt for a bustling downtown hotel or accommodations on the outskirts of town, some of B.C.’s best courses are right around the corner!
