Course Reviews

Course Name Fernie Golf and Country Club
Location Fernie, British Columbia, Canada
Comments from Marv Slind, Moscow, Idaho, USA
This is definitely one of the most beautiful courses I have ever played. The physical setting is striking, with high mountains visible in all directions. Wildlife included a large fox running across the second fairway, and a wide variety of fowl. Car t paths often go through wooded areas for additional asthetic charm. The course is challenging, without being daunting for a mid- to high-handicapper. The scorecards suggest which tees are appropriate for different ranges of handicaps, and our foursome fo und those recommendations quite accurate. Water comes into play on several holes, either lying alongside fairways, or crossing between teeboxes and the greens on some par-3's. The course was well groomed, greens in good condition, and rough long enough to pose a challenge without making errant shots impossible to recover from. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. While I am sensitive to Canadian feelings on the matter, I also cannot fail to mention that the current exchange rate makes play in Ca nada a great bargain as well. All in all, playing at Fernie was an extremely pleasant experience.

Played this track 4 or 5 times with my uncle and would recommend it to anyone. I rate it right up there with Kananaskis for the awesome views, and the tracks not bad either. Great job to club pro Doug Robb and course Super. Bob Brydon.
