With the majestic Rockies serving as the backdrop, the Mountainside Course at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort features stunning panoramic views. The course tumbles across dramatic elevation changes and snakes through tall stands of spruce and fir. The winding fairways are lined with trees and bunkers are strategically placed throughout. The traditional layout provides stunning mountain and valley vistas from nearly every hole. The fourth hole is particularly notable both for its level of difficulty and the unrivaled views. The golf course has a fair amount of challenges but it is still approachable to beginners. The Mountainside is one of two 18-hole golf courses at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort. The other course, aptly named Riverside, runs along the Columbia River. There is also a par-3, nine-hole course available.
The Riverside Course is one of two 18-hole championship courses at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort. While both courses share the Rockies as a backdrop, the other golf course, called Mountainside, possesses a more undulating terrain. As its name aptly suggests, the course runs alongside the Columbia River, whose headwaters shaped the design of the course. Each of the par 3s uses the mighty river to defend fiercely guard the greens. There is tremendous variety throughout the golf course, both in length and terrain, which makes it appealing to different skill levels. It is also an excellent walking course that is enhanced even further with mountain and river views. The fifth hole is the course's signature. This tricky hole crosses the river twice. In addition to the two 18-hole courses, there is also a nine-hole par-3 course.
Fairmont Hot Springs Resort boasts 45 holes of golf, two 18-hole championship courses and one par-3, nine-hole course called Creekside. Like its longer sister courses, the Creekside Course enjoys the same stunning mountain views provided by the adjacent Rocky Mountains. The golf course also shares the same interesting variety that appeals to a range of different skill levels and abilities. The layout sprawls across a gently undulating landscape of ponds and creeks. The water system was uniquely designed with an environmentally friendly water filtration system. In addition to the water, the strategic placement of the sand bunkers is another tricky element of the course. Creekside offers the same features as the 18-hole courses but on a smaller scale, which makes it an excellent option for a more casual but still challenging round.
