Five Days of Pure Golf & Local Beer

With the abundance of professional golf courses in the Kootenay’s, you can customize this trip to fit in as much as you like or choose the courses you prefer.

Day One - Radium, Invermere & Panorama

Eagle Ranch

After a hearty Austrian dinner at Helna’s Stube and staying the previous night at Bighorn Meadows Resort rise early to golf Radium Hot Springs’ two world-class courses, The Springs and Radium Resort. Both courses are par 72 that play up to 6,818 and 6,269 yards respectively. If time allows before heading on the road to Invermere, just 15 minutes away, have a soak at Radium Hot Springs pools to relax those muscles for the next day. After your round, stop in at Radium Brewing to try a flight of their small-batch brewed beers.

Upon arriving in Invermere stop at Arrowhead Brewery to enjoy a pint in the lounge while watching the beer making process from the viewing corridor. From there drive up to Panorama Resort for the night and enjoy options from the decadent Italian dinner menu at Alto Kitchen & Bar and a great sleep at Panorama Springs Lodge.
