Many golf enthusiasts in the Cranbrook-Kimberley Development Zone have a special affinity for Kimberley’s Trickle Creek Golf Resort, and it would appear they aren’t alone. The 18-hole, championship course is among the 2018 BC Golf Dream Top Ranked Golf Courses in B.C.
Conducted by B.C. Golf Safaris, the BC Golf Dream survey is the largest consumer ranking of public courses in the province. The survey took place in early 2018. Nearly 4,000 golfers in Alberta and B.C. were asked to vote on their favourite courses in six of B.C.’s most popular destinations.
Trickle Creek has also been recognized in the past by readers of SCORE Golf Magazine for being one of the top resort courses in Canada.

At 4,000 feet, it is one of the highest courses in the Kootenay Rockies. Kimberley’s temperate climate and 2,125 hours of sunshine create the ideal playing conditions that local and visiting golfers seek.
The course is complimented by the Trickle Creek Lodge, which is just seconds away, and Kimberley’s friendly atmosphere, not to mention the city’s wide range of amenities and access to other award-winning outdoor activities.
