Itching to keep that golf game fresh while on vacation? Want to check out a great golf course in the heart of some of the world's most spectacular scenery? Then you need to head to Fernie Golf & Country Club. This spectacular 18-hole championship golf course challenges grizzled veterans and beginners alike with its sweeping fairways, tricky water hazards and meticulous greens.

Opened in 1918, this majestic course has endured for nearly 100 years. Staffed & maintained by Canadian Professional Golf Association professionals, the course has withstood the test of time incredibly well and continues to receive praise for its playability combined with its striking visual surroundings. The Fernie Golf & Country club offers a beautiful clubhouse that boasts wonderful breakfast, lunch & dinner menus, beautiful outdoor seating and top-notch, fully-certified staff. Its Pro Shop offers the latest cutting-edge golf gear from drivers to apparel to bags to balls.

The Club also hosts a variety of events and tournaments. On August 9th, the Club will host the He/She Golf Tournament. Team up with your favourite member of the opposite sex (anything less would be sheer chaos on the golf course!) and enjoy this fun twist on the classic "alternate shot" golf tournament. In this unique format, each player will tee off and then hit their partner's ball on the following shot. From there, they can choose which shot is best and take it to the hole! To register, contact the Pro Shop at 250-423-7773. Golfers will be treated to pizza and prizes after their day on the links!

If a weekend golf getaway is in your future, then look no further than Fernie Golf & Country Club.
