Travel: Sandpiper Golf Course home to eagle gathering
Local favorite Sandpiper Golf Course offers more than their romantic Rowena’s Inn. Fall also invites extraordinary wildlife viewing. Each fall, black bears lumber down towards the Harrison River as the salmon spawn, which also attracts thousands of bald eagles.
Sandpiper Golf Course is a resort-style course situated on a historic piece of land alongside the tranquil waters of the Harrison River. It’s ‘forest golfing’ at its finest with two distinctly different environments — the open fairways alongside the river and the quiet serenity amongst the ancient 180 ft. Douglas Firs.
Heralded as one of BC’s leading resort courses and just recognized as one of BC’s best, as a 2012 BC Hidden Gem, by Inside Golf and the PGA, the 18-hole year-round golf course is gently sloped and home to the signature Sasquatch Footprint. You may go for a game of golf, but be sure to stay for their rustic cabins.
