Fairmont Hot Springs Resort - Mountainside
With the majestic Rockies serving as the backdrop, the Mountainside Course at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort features stunning panoramic views. The course tumbles across dramatic elevation changes and snakes through tall stands of spruce and fir. The winding fairways are lined with trees and bunkers are strategically placed throughout. The traditional layout provides stunning mountain and valley vistas from nearly every hole. The fourth hole is particularly notable both for its level of difficulty and the unrivaled views. The golf course has a fair amount of challenges but it is still approachable to beginners. The Mountainside is one of two 18-hole golf courses at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort. The other course, aptly named Riverside, runs along the Columbia River. There is also a par-3, nine-hole course available.

This course needs a lot of work to bring it up to snuff. Many greens are so sloped that there aren't very many legal pin positions (i.e. ball rolls from being set in place by hole). 15 is probably one of the strangest hole designs I've ever seen. They also need to have some combo tees to give a better variety of course lengths. Also, not too sure how valid the slope rating is, Glad I played it but won't be back for a second time.
Great Vacation Course
For a course in vacation country it was very good. It is a very tight course with a lot of out of bounds so be careful with your first shot. The greens are very tricky but good. The only negative I had was that I would prefer the greens to be more defined with bunkers orsomethng
