second of two great golf courses to be built at the famous Fairmont Hot Springs
in the BC Rockies, Riverside Golf Resort is a testament to fantastic golf and
beautiful scenery. Surrounded by the distracting views of the majestic Canadian
Rocky Mountains, the Riverside course also requires golfers to contend with the
Columbia River crossing it four separate times. With the choice of four separate
tee boxes and varying widths in the landing areas, this challenge can be tempered
for golfers of all levels.
One of its most distinctive holes is the 562-yard par five 18th. As with any good
finishing hole, Rivershore’s 18th will require you to call on all aspects of your
game to succeed. Shaped like a lazy "S" the hole will require a long accurate
tee shot to the right side of the fairway if you are contemplating going for the
green in two.
that is your plan your second shot will have to be over water with a long iron
or fairway wood. Be sure to get all of the shot as anything short will find water
or one of the four traps that guard this relatively small green.
you are more of the conservative vein, keep your second shot left with a mid or
long iron, and set up birdie with a controlled wedge from your favorite yardage.
If things go poorly for you on this hole don’t worry. The 19th hole is not far
discover all that Rocky Mountain golf can be. Golf Riverside at Fairmont Golf
