Course Introduction and History
Designed by famous Canadian golf course architect Robert Kains, Shannon Lake Golf Course is a testament to Kains' reputation for both architectural quality and innovation. This course is a semi-private golfing facility that offers the only championship level course in the region. The course itself sits nestled within a forest of towering pine trees and was originally built at a moderate elevation level. As a result, in addition to the flawless layout of the course, you also get to witness views of the surrounding landscape that are simply unattainable anywhere else. You'll have a bird's eye view of the valley, lake, forests, and mountains, all of which combined are sure to keep you staring at least for a short while. From the start at hole #1 to the end at hole #18, the championship level course quality is maintained in such a subtle way that it provides a challenge for any golfer of any skill set.
