OVERVIEW

BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA – Greywolf Golf Course, located in British Columbia’s Panorama Mountain Village surrounded by the Canadian Rockies and Columbia Valley, and designed by Doug Carrick Design, is without a doubt well deserving of its 4.5 star rating by Golf Digest. This British Columbian course that opened in 1999, is popular in golf packages as it tops out at 7,140 yards from the silver tee boxes to 5,365 yards from the forward tees. This jaw-dropping BC, Canada course is playable for all golfers that want to tee it up while on a golf vacation in Panorama Mountain Village.

The first three holes on the front nine are uphill, requiring an extra club to reach these receptive undulating greens.

“A long downhill par 4, followed by a three-shot par 5 brings you back down the mountain and to Greywolf Golf Course’s signature hole, No. 6 – Cliffhanger,” said Canadian Rockies golf expert Osborne Tracy. “Ranging from 200 to 142 yards and perched atop a granite plateau, this is one of the most exhilarating golf holes in BC, Canada.

“It is better to be long than short on this beauty.”

LIKES

It is likely the best driving course you are ever going to play in British Columbia. For those who like to let the “big dog” eat, you will feast on a buffet of holes. The location and routing of this golf course in Panorama Mountain Village is truly an amazing accomplishment.

“Being at an elevation close to 4,000 feet, not only does your golf ball fly further in the thin BC, Canada air, it is as if your ball is soaring high in the Canadian Rockies with the eagles before finding the fairway,” according to Tracy.

DISLIKES

Playing uphill and downhill can cause a few uneven lies and a few chucky shots if you aren’t careful.

PLAYING STRATEGY

Choose your tee box to reflect your handicap and then let it fly. Treat the par 5 on No. 5 as a three-shot hole as there is no bail out area if you miss going for the green in two shots.  Trust your ability and distance on No. 6 – Cliffhanger. It’s a typical big green often found in BC with lots of room long.

“If you are on your game, then go for it on the driveable 11hole (par 4). Hunker down on the par-3 nine hole, and on the No. 15 as water comes into play,” said Tracy.

If you like this BC golf experience in shadows of Canadian Rockies at Panorama Mountain Village, then you’ll enjoy playing British Columbia’s Silvertip, Bear Mountain, Stewart Creek and the Ridge course at Predator Ridge.
