Course Details & Location
The Cultus Lake Golf Club is a 4,000 yard executive par 63 course that is set in beautiful Cultus Lake Provincial Park. This mix of par 3s, 4s, and a par 5 weaves tightly thru large old growth fir and cedar trees. Don’t let the yardage fool you as it will be sure to test every club and every shot in your bag. The Cultus Lake Golf Club has been owned and operated by the same family for over 30 years. The unique design, beautiful setting, fabulous playing conditions, and relaxed atmosphere make this facility one of the great “hidden gems” in British Columbia.
