Mini Golf FORE the Win!
The Columbia Valley is well known for its golf courses, home to 10 in the communities of Spur Valley, Radium Hot Springs, Invermere, Panorama, Windermere, and Fairmont Hot Springs.
It is also a putter’s paradise with five mini golf courses throughout the valley, each showcasing unique features and views!
D's - Radium Hot Springs
If you’ve entered Radium via Highway 93, you’ve surely noticed the inviting blue water features on D’s Mini Golf course! The 18-hole course offers beautiful views of Mount Berland, a couple easier holes for higher chances of the elusive hole in one, and fun ornamentals gnomes throughout.
The rules of the game state the winner buys gelato (numerous flavours available), or grab a bite of mouth-watering Mexican from Leo Burrito at the same location. They also have sombreros to borrow while you play to get into the spirit!
Ozzie's Amusements - Windermere
Ozzie’s Amusements mini golf course is charming with a unique feature at every hole to keep both adults and kids entertained. Many water features, a miniature stained-glass church, rockslide tunnel, and waterwheel are a few of the fun elements along the course. (If you are playing with kids, expect a bit of extra time at the waterwheel hole!)
Mini golf isn’t the only fun activity, with a Go-Kart track for those 10 years and older. They also have ice cream to cool off after an exciting round!
Funtasia - Fairmont Hot Springs
Funstasia’s mini golf course is perfect for a hot day with the 18-hole course nestled amongst the fir forest. The well-maintained course incorporates natural features for challenges including a tight uphill green with a narrow passage between two trees. Expect a few cheers from the mini animals nearby (we enjoyed the alpaca and donkey snorting for us when we played!)
After your round, check out the other activities including spin and bump cars, feeding animals in the pet park, playing in the gardens, and more.
