Great Kamloops Golf Courses and the Real Estate Around them, 2011

For some having a home close to an award-winning golf course is a dream come true! Here are the best golf courses in Kamloops and some information about the real estate around them.
The Dunes

Offering one of the most unique courses in the Kamloops area the Dunes has been used as a testing ground for national professionals hoping to make it on to the international stage. Expect to pay close to $100 per round on this beautiful course but if you can make friends with a local member that number can drop to less than $50 depending on the time of year. The Dunes is located in Westsyde real estate in this area ranges in price from the low $200k  for older townhouse with single carport all the way up to million dollar river front mansions. Westsyde is desirable due its small town feel and proximity to parks, and the river.
Rivershore Golf Links

Another excellent golf course used in the past as a testing ground for young professionals hoping to eventually compete against the likes of Tiger Woods and Michelle Wie is Rivershore Golf Links.  This course is surrounded a great bareland strata with single detached houses. Most of the houses are ranch style so you don't have to worry about climbing up stairs to get your groceries to the fridge and they start around $350k.  The bareland strata fee is around $115/month and includes water, sewer, garbage, roads, and cable. Recently $10,000 was spent per household to connect this area to the Kamloops city water system.
Sun Peaks Golf Course

Sun Peaks has some of the most competitive golf course rates in the area and considering it is usually 5-10 degrees cooler than other Kamloops golf courses it is certainly a golf course all Kamloops golfers should try at least once a season! Real Estate around the golf course ranges in price from about $200k for an apartment/townhouse to about $1million for a really nice house. Sun Peaks recently became a resort municipality and with this distinction may have a bright future ahead due to increased government grants for infrastructure. If you are interested in more information about the Sun Peaks course I do have a short video tour of the course here.
Sun River Golf Course and Community

Just minutes from the downtown core of Kamloops and close to major highways this course is a popular destination for kamloops residents looking to golf on a great course within 15 minutes after leaving work!  Real Estate around this golf course is long term (up to 120 years) leasehold land.  All of the properties are geothermal If you are interested in the real estate around Sun Rivers I highly recommend you look at this blog and video on the topic here.

Save the best for last! Tobiano has been rewarded with some of the best ratings in the province and it is not hard to see why.  With stunning views at every tee box and an excellently well maintained course Tobiano is a slice of paradise. The community of Tobiano is located along the shores of Kamloops Lake one of the nicest and largely unused lakes in the interior.  Real Estate prices range from the low $300k to million dollar homes and right now it is very much a buyers market in this vacation destination.
