Balfour Golf Club is laid across a stretch of grassy meadows and rolling hills that sit right along the shores of Kootenay Lake. Perched atop a plateau above the Balfour Ferry Landing, the course tumbles through the Purcell Mountains, providing a rugged terrain with plenty of interesting elevation changes. The golf course winds through dense forests of pine, birch, and Douglas fir trees. The nine-hole layout boasts beautifully sculpted fairways that are wide and lined with trees and contoured greens that are very fast. Water hazards come into play on two holes. The course has the ideal level of challenge while still maintaining playability for players of all skill levels. There is an additional set of tees in case golfers choose to play Balfour Golf Club as an 18-hole round.
