Assistant Golf Professional

Talking Rock Golf Course has been the pride of the Little Shuswap Indian Band since opening in August 2007. On the shores of Little Shuswap Lake, a unique golfing experience awaits.

Designed by acclaimed Canadian architects Graham Cooke and Wayne Carlton, the course meanders through a mature, sandy forest before ending with a breathtaking 18th hole extending along the Little Shuswap Lake shoreline. Minimal alteration of the diverse landscape was required, creating a course of natural and rugged character that demands strategy and thought from players of all skills and abilities. Whether you are an experienced golfer or just learning the game, Talking Rock Golf Course offers a wonderful challenge for everyone and stunning scenery with every shot.
