Golf Course Updates

Recent News
Full Course Now Open for Play!

The front nine holes of the Sun Peaks Golf Course have had a ‘soft opening’ in effect for the past couple of weeks and although access has been walking only, plenty of golfers have been out enjoying the great early season conditions on the course’s sunny side. The back nine, sitting in Mt. Morrisey’s shadow for more of the spring, has finally thawed and the full course is now open for play with power carts!

Exceptional Conditions Throughout

Hole #1 Tee Deck
Normally this time of year we experience very wet conditions but thanks to the warm spring we're playing in conditions similar to late June, even with the recent rains.” Keith Lyall, Golf Course Superintendent

Hole #3 Tee Deck

Hole #4 Tee Deck

The greens are firming and tightening up, there are still a few scars here and there but we're well ahead of our usual spring up here in Sun Peaks. Greens on the back nine are not as colourful as the front quite yet. The first nitrogen application was applied to the back nine on Wednesday which will help brighten them up but has made access for photos relatively tough.

Hole #7 Green

As usual this time of year snow can be found on the course, but way less than expected. The only spot left in play is the green-side bunker on Hole #13. Even in the alpine, only a few patches of the winter’s epic snowpack remain.

Mountain Weather Challenges & Moving Forward

The rough in some areas will be a bit longer than normal, the entire course has been cut over the past week and things will be trimmed a bit closer when the full maintenance crew starts work first thing next week. 

Hole #12 Tee Deck

Dandelion explosion! The down side to an early and warm spring, herbicide applications are scheduled to begin next week to combat these colourful pests and will take up to 2 weeks to complete.

Dandelion explosion around Hole #2

Last fall's vandalism on the Hole #10 green has not yet fully grown in, a temporary green has been cut on the fairway to be used in the meantime as this area regenerates over the next week or two.

Overall conditions are excellent and the resort is looking lush and vibrant for the opening of full operations on the golf course. See you on the links!
