The most acclaimed public golf course in Canada created in this generation. The winner of more awards than any other modern public golf course in this country. A golf experience built on one of the most spectacular pieces of land in Canada.
Tobiano Golf Course is all of those things and more.
“Tobiano may be the best new course I’ve seen in Canada. Ever. Period,” says SCOREGolf’s Bob Weeks, while golf columnist Robert Thompson calls it “a modern golf course to rival the best in the country.”
From the drama of its opener, through to the stunning challenge of its closing hole, Tobiano will capture your imagination with staggering scenery that is matched only by the quality of its course. Views of Lake Kamloops dominate, so it is no surprise that Tobiano has been compared to some of the world’s best—Ballybunion in Ireland, Pebble Beach in California. It is simply that good.
“As a golf course, Tobiano deserves any honor it gets,” says WorldGolf.com’s Mike Bailey.
The best public golf course in British Columbia. Best New in Canada by multiple magazines. Top 10 in Canada.
Tobiano is without question one of the most discussed golf courses ever to open in Canada—and for good reason.
“I couldn’t tell you the signature hole—because there are 18 of them,” says SCOREGolf‘s Bob Weeks.
He’s right—Tobiano is full of standouts. From the drama of the opening tee shot, with Kamloops Lake positioned in the background, to the 13th, a par five that features a daunting and tantalizing tee shot over a vast canyon, Tobiano is exciting from start to finish.
Every great golf course starts with an incredible piece of property where the designers’ vision can be crafted on a natural canvas. Few settings in the world are better than where designer Thomas McBroom created Tobiano. “Tobiano has to be the best site I’ve ever seen from a drama and a beauty point of view,” says McBroom.
There’s no doubt the canyons that run throughout Tobiano—and McBroom’s ingenious incorporation of them into his design—sets the course apart. But it goes beyond that, with the clear blue of the ever-present lake giving the course another element usually found only on seaside courses. “Kamloops Lake is in view from some point on every hole,” says Golf Digest architecture Ron Whitten, “and those holes closest to it are reminiscent of Pebble Beach.”
With those exemplary raves, it is no surprise that accolades for the course—with its mix of five par threes, including the staggeringly beautiful seventh hole with its cliffhanger tee shot—continue to pour in. “[Tobiano] tops the perennial ‘best-of’ lists for the region, mostly for its ingenious routing through numerous crevices and sage-bordered canyons,” says David Weiss in Golfweek.
There’s no doubt about it—Tobiano is a work of art and a spectacular golf experience rolled into one.
The critics and golfers have spoken—Tobiano is Canada’s best public course.
But don’t take their word for it. Try it for yourself and see what everyone is raving about.
Right now, Tobiano has an amazing golf special available: $299 tee times every Monday and Tuesday which includes golf for 4 players with a shared power cart, use of the practice facility, bottle of water and the GST.
