A GOLFER'S DREAM
Trickle Creek Golf Resort in Kimberley is one of the highest courses in the Kootenay Rockies, located above 4,000 feet (Kimberley, B.C is in fact the city with the highest altitude in Canada), and offers an extraordinary mountain golfing experience. Dramatic elevation changes, peak-filled horizons, gorgeous white-silica bunkers, undulating greens and a solid Les Furber design add up to an unforgettable day of golf.

The course traverses the slopes of North Star Mountain, one of the many holes that’s bound to challenge you is the stunning par-3 on signature hole #11. The tee box hangs on a ledge and the green, approximately 175 yards away, is beautifully shelved among spindly pines and a bold collection of snow-white bunkers.

2017 & 2018, Trickle Creek Golf Resort was voted the number one course in Kimberley & Cranbrook through the B.C Golf Safari client survey.

Located just seconds from the course is the cozy Trickle Creek Lodge, here you can unwind, visit the hot tub and heated pool, then enjoy dinner in the beautiful new Buckhorn & Main Mountain Eatery, located right in the lodge. This award-winning hotel also features kitchen units and living area in all guest rooms, fitness centre and outdoor pool with 2 hot tubs

The Platzl in Kimberley’s city centre is what readily comes to mind when one thinks of Kimberley BC.

Kimberley is widely known as the “City of Festivals” The walking "Pedestrian Only" Platzl is the venue where most of the city’s signature festivals – and other community events, too – take place each year. Visitors to the Platzl during one of these festivals are usually completely enchanted to see artisan booths, street dancing, live music, parades and so much more lively activity, especially during the summer months.

Bordered by unique local shops, boutiques and restaurants, the Platzl’s pedestrian-only brick streets, water fountains, giant chess pieces, climbing wall and cute, hand-painted fire hydrants, draw thousands of visitors every year to this little oasis of downtown heaven.

The Platzl is also home to Canada’s largest free-standing cuckoo clock. Just pop a loonie into the clock – you will be delighted to see ‘Happy Hans’ emerge to greet you. Hans is a yodeling, mustachioed fellow in leather shorts and saluting you with a beer stein. He’s guaranteed to bring a smile to every face.
