Granite Pointe Golf Club
Granite Pointe Golf Club
Granite Pointe Golf Club is an 18-hole course in Nelson, B.C., that will wow you! With its excellent pro shop, RV park, restaurant, junior golf, tournaments and other events, this facility has earned a shining reputation among West Kootenay golfers.
The course is just minutes from downtown Nelson, and offers views of the city, Kootenay Lake and the famous Kokanee Glacier. It also has some of the most affordable membership prices in the region.
Right from the start, you will be tempted to reach for your camera, as the front nine takes you through glorious mountain terrain (with some holes offering elevated tee boxes).
Holes 6, 7 and 8 are known for providing excellent scoring opportunities, with the signature Hole 7 being voted one of the best in B.C.
The back nine is equally enjoyable, boasting a park-like feel, generous fairways and challenging water hazards to test your skills.
When you finish up at the 18th hole, you'll find yourself right in front of the clubhouse restaurant, (fittingly called the Wedge), where you can select from a menu of delectable food items.

A rich history
Granite Pointe saw its first year of operation back in 1920, when it started off as a nine-hole course. Membership fees were $10 for men and $5 for ladies.
The course was expanded to become an 18-hole facility in 1993, when it underwent a major overhaul and upgrade.
