    Christina Lake Golf Club

    Christina Lake Golf Club is an 18-hole, 6,685-yard course that underwent a huge makeover from a 9-hole course in 1986. The course expansion was designed by Les Furber and shows off his signature architecture with elevated tees, strategically bunkered greens and fairways, multi-tiered greens and four holes featuring water hazards. This is the first course in Canada to offer the unique feature of black sand traps and the course is regarded as one of the top 25 in British Columbia. The course offers stay-and-play packages with many accommodations in the area and, new for 2012, the club has built a brand-new riverfront RV park. There are a total of 27 sites available; 25 are 30-amp and two are 50-amp power hookups. Christina Lake Golf Club also offers lessons for those who wish to learn the game or just improve their present game.
