The course – located between the Purcell and Selkirk mountain ranges, is highlighted by awesome elevation changes and panoramic views throughout. A friendly, unpretentious place where everyone is welcome. Not only will you experience dynamite scenery, exceptional variety and top-notch conditioning, but wildlife sightings – including deer, moose and more – are common during play. Unquestionably, this is great golf … served up Kootenay Rockies style!

The Creston Golf Club History
The Creston Golf Club was founded in 1954 when a group of locals formed a society and purchased 100 acres of previously logged Crown land for $265. Local engineer Vaughan Mosher donated his time to design the original course and many volunteers helped build 9 holes with sand greens, completely ready for play in 1962. Grass greens were built in 1970. Holes #2, 3, 7, 15 and 16 still play on these original grass greens. In 1982, a new clubhouse was built. And, in 1989-91, a professionally designed expansion to 18 holes took place.
