Radium Golf – Golf in BC’s Rocky Mountains in Radium Hot SpringsThe Springs Course had its first, ninth and eighteenth holes completely redone – including reshaping, re-sodding, new bunkering, and planting of additional trees. On all other holes tee boxes were refurbished or constructed to provide golfers with five tee box options on each hole. All the refurbishments have been overseen by the original designer of the course, Les Furber of Canmore, Alberta. At The Radium Course, you’ll see a new green on the first hole, the reintroduction of the spectacular elevated tees on the second, re-contouring of the 13th fairway and the entire front nine of the course rerouted to provide golfers with signature views of the area and enhanced playability. “The course changes represent a significant investment in the two of B.C.’s premier golf properties”, said golf course architect Les Furber. “It is an honour to return to refurbish and enhance what we started close to 30 years ago”.
We are also excited to announce that the Windmill Golf Group and Radium Golf Group have entered into a strategic management agreement which will bring together both companies’ strengths in the golf business and allow both parties to grow and offer expanded facilities to members and guests.

The Radium Course
Welcome to the Radium Course
Perched high over the Columbia Valley in the rugged terrain bordering Kootenay National Park, the course features tight, tree-lined fairways, undulating greens and dramatic elevation changes. The Radium Course can be forgiving to the average golfer – just like you would expect from an old friend – while offering challenges for the low handicapper, making it a perfect complement to The Springs.
The Springs Course
Welcome to The Springs
The Springs is set high along the banks of the mighty Columbia River. The wide open spaces of the Columbia Valley, the snow-capped Purcell Mountains to the west and the imposing Rockies to the east create a stunning backdrop for this meticulously maintained par 72 course. Add in relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere, attentive service and one of the best practice facilities in Canada and The Springs is a Canadian classic you’ll remember.
