A fun challenge
Sep. 2020
This golf is spectacular but not for the faint of heart! This course requires a cart because of the up and down and hitting from cliff to cliff. Cool. My wrap that I had wasn't the best I've had, but I don't go for the food! Greens were able to hold the ball, and it really didn't break as much as you would think. Fairways were lovely when you hit it in the correct spot. Plan your shots and you will not lose a bucket of balls. I would go back in a heartbeat. If you play from the tips, you had better be accurate!

Challenging but fun
Aug. 2020
Played Tobiano for the first time in several years; it is a challenging course with several holes where a long tee shot over a deep ravine is needed. The course is in excellent shape and the views of Kamloops Lake are spectacular from the back nine in particular.

Staff were friendly and helpful in arranging for my tee time (single) and modifying it when I arrived early from Vancouver.

Fabulous Golf Course in a Great Setting
Jul. 2019 • Solo
The course is located on the south shore of Kamloops Lake. It is long but wide open making it a bit easier for us differs your do fairly well there.
The scenery is fantasti. Lake view and mountains on all holes.
After the round the restaurant served up a great meal. There is a property development there which is being developed in a very orderly manner.
It is a great spot to live and golf

Top Notch Pro Shop Service!
Aug. 2019
Tobiano is a true gem! We have golfed at many amazing courses but what sets Tobiano apart are their outstanding people.

Dave at the Pro Shop made our entire experience memorable. From the moment we walked in, Dave was so accommodating, friendly, patient and always had a smile. He was such a pleasure to deal with and was so informative. My mother had a million questions and Dave was so kind in answering all of them.

It was our first time at Tobiano and will certainly not be the last! Thanks Dave for your top notch service and making our experience special. The 2.5 hour drive was definitely worth it!

This is a hidden Gem!
Aug. 2019
My wife and I were fortunate to experience this amazing golf course on Aug 4th 2019, all i can say is WOW! from the moment we arrived the service was impecable, the bag drop girl was friendy and helpful, the pro shop staff were welcoming and full of knowledge about the course. From the pro shop we worked our way down to the complimentary driving range which is stocked with brand new Calloway balls. After warming up we proceeded to the first tee where we were greeted by a friendly starter who explained the course in full detail. This course is a link style course with many challenging holes, be sure to manage yourself on your first time out as the driver could hurt you in many areas. Stay down the middle as there is no room for error, my first round out i shot an 80 from the alternate tee boxes they call "Lake" & "Spur" its a combination of blue & blacks. My wife played form the "Sage" tees she shot a 101. The power cart come with ball washer, iron washer, complimenatry water in the side cooler and full on GPS with score card system. This course is not a walking course, in fact they will not let you walk as the distance between each hole is to far to walk. You will also find the marshall out in the field offering advice and help if needed, the cart girls is also availbale when you need it with ice cold beer. Make sure to take the time to snap lots of pictures when on this course as the scenery is breath taking. The restaurant also serves amazing food and is air conditioned to keep you comfortable or you can enjoy the patio. If I had to add a few things to make this an even better experiece I would offer the following. Customized bag tags, sun block, tees, ball markers. No one was upselling me at check in, I love this kind of stuff and my wife loves clothes and shoes. Other than that we would highly recommend this Golf course to all my friends and family. This is the BEST course in B.C hands down...

A great golf course
Jul. 2019 • Couples
Priced right. This target track is fair, challenging, but has hidden trouble. NEVER shoot until you know where you are going. The terrain make it difficult to see where the fairways go at times so drive ahead and be sure. Locate the green greens. Also know there are some difficult carries. Trust the score card and/or the cart GPS. Spot each other’s ball flights. Most of all take time to enjoy the scenery and the solitude. This is a most beautiful course. Also I would visit the 19th hole as the food is quite good. Lastly - bring lots of balls if you don’t always shoot straight.

Avoid this mosquito-infested course at all costs
Jun. 2019 • Friends
The course itself is merely decent with many gimmicky holes that do not reward the golfer for a good shot, especially off the tee. However, the main problem is the swarms of mosquitoes EVERYWHERE. With every step on the course, you release dozens of mosquitoes from the rough. The only positive about this course is that you will have to learn to have Zen-like concentration as the mosquitoes continuously bite and buzz you everything you stand over your ball...

Hi Andrew - Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Tobiano’s layout can prove challenging at times, but as one of the top golf experiences in Canada we find that a vast majority of players enjoy the course thoroughly and return often to play again. In regards to your mosquito encounter, we did notice increased activity on the course this weekend and are taking concrete steps to work with local partners to reduce the population around the course in a safe and effective manner. In the meantime, we do offer bug spray at our Pro Shop and golfers can also get a free application at our Beverage Cart to help keep the pests at bay while on the course. We hope that you will consider returning in the future to play again, in the meantime please feel free to contact me at 250-434-7373 ext 3 if there’s anything else we can do to make your next visit more enjoyable. Sincerely, Terry Smith, General Manager

Inconsistent!
Apr. 2019 • Couples
Had lunch at the golf course a week ago and we were very impressed with food and service. We returned yesterday to be disappointed. Ordered the same dish (fish and chips) and asked to share, The food came on a single plate with extra plate provide. The fish was very overcooked so sent it back and ask that it be replaced. We returned three pieces but two were returned without fries. The bill included a $2.00 charge for sharing?
Low class standards for what should be a first class restaurant. We won't return.
