The Hope Golf Club on the banks of the Coquihalla River is worth checking out for any golf enthusiast.

The clubhouse offers a pro shop and banquet hall. There is also a putting green and driving range to perfect your game before heading out on the links.

With Hope’s mild weather, players can play almost year-round. The course rating for men is 69.6 with a slope of 117 and for women a slope of 122.
