Barry ZwuesteCRANBROOK, British Columbia (Gord Montgomery/iG) — As of right now, St. Eugene Golf Resort is seen by many as a two-dimensional recreational area, a golf course, and a casino. That’s about to change though, thanks to the vision of the property’s new CEO, Barry Zwueste.

The new head honcho wants to take this area — set amongst some of nicest backdrops anywhere in B.C. — to hew heights by expanding on the services offered and by partnering with other facilities in the area to grow the interest of travellers by building off a great golf course and the popular casino.



Kimberley Golf Club: Don’t Judge a Golf Course by Its Length

Kimberley Golf ClubKIMBERLEY, British Columbia (Gord Montgomery/iG) — At first glance this assignment seems pretty pale in comparison to some other tests you may have undertaken. After all, the first hole at the Kimberley Golf Club is a par 4 measuring out at only 290 yards from the tips. I mean, how hard can that be?

And then one step further down the scenic fairways, this whole track is compressed into less than 6,300 yards. So basically, it’s a walk in the park, right?

Well, maybe not so much.

Greywolf Golf CoursePANORAMA, British Columbia (Gord Montgomery/iG) — Don’t let first impressions fool you. Certainly, Greywolf Golf Course is a beautiful layout in the Canadian Rockies but despite what one would think because it’s mountain golf that your shots are going to fly forever that’s not necessarily the case.

Justin Brown, the scenic setting’s head professional, said that players from Alberta, and in particular Calgary and Edmonton, won’t notice any extra carry (sorry about that) on their shots. However, if you’re travelling to this idyllic setting from the Lower Mainland, well then, you’re in for a treat!
