Granite Pointe Golf Club
The first nine holes of Granite Pointe Golf Club were built in 1920 and were later joined by a back nine in 1993 that tumbles through the mountains. The layout features a number of risk-reward holes that require accurate shot-making. The golf course begins with rolling parkland and offers wide, player-friendly fairways but then becomes progressively more challenging as it winds through the mountains. There are several elevated tees on the back nine that offer spectacular views of Kootenay Lake and the Kokanee Glacier. Holes 15-17, known as the Three Aces, offer some excellent scoring opportunities. The par-4 16th is touted to be one of the best holes in BC. The golf course finishes with its signature hole. This par 4's trademark is the massive granite boulder that partially blocks the view of the home stretch.

Front 9 or Back 9? Just choose
Was greeted by a friendly staff, where I picked up cart keys and scorecards. Was asked if this was my first time playing....said yes, you will need a course planner and there free. Between the course planner, scorecard and my GPS watch took us 3 holes to finally figure out that they had switched the 9's, nothing was said by the staff, and even if they did it wouldn't make up for changing par 5 to par 3 etc....
I totally get changing and make the course better, but tell people, especially when you ask them is this your first time. And maybe get correct scorecards.
Also ran into a few members, what arrogant @$$holes. Playing with my son I understand that rounds maybe slow however, we were playing well on time 1.5hrs for 9. While I was teeing it up on 10, the group begin us PUTTING on 9 asked if they could jump ahead as we were too slow, then we proceeded to wait on every tee box until 16.
Play somewhere else, anywhere or maybe just take the day off, not worth your time.
GolfNow.com what a great way to play like you didn’t care. A series of tragedies obscured by one miracle. Truly fun
Challenging fun corse w Incredible views
So glad w stopped in for a round. A fun course. Some large granite boulders are unique to have in play. A treat with many interesting holes and friendly local golfers. Back 9 is walkable but advise a cart for the front. - www.calgaryhomeprs.com
Great day of golf
We loved the up and down holes, as a intermediate golfer it was a good challenge and the greens were in great shape. Carts were a little dated but ran fine. Would definitely play again
The whole booking process and time at the golf course was easy and efficient.
Beautiful course. Stunning views. Bring your A game if you want to score well. Greens are challenging.
Great views, especially after 3
I'd been told some love and some hate this golf course.
All in all, I enjoy it, once you get past the first three holes. They really are junk, not appealing at all visually, greens are poorly designed as they all slope away from the front, pretty much eliminating any chance of hitting it close unless you get lucky.
After that though, it's a really nice layout. Not overly tough, a lot of birdie opportunities, but also some spots where you can get in trouble.
Greens were in good shape and there are some outstanding views of the valley and Nelson below.
For a smaller course in the heart of the Nelson BC city limits this course is fantastic, especially if you like the challenge of rarely having a flat lie. The staff is super friendly and the views of the surrounding mountains and lake are stunning.
