n integral part of Rossland for generations, the beautiful old course set within a rich, tree-filled valley was run as the Rossland Trail Country Club for many years. Recently it was transformed into Redstone Resort — an epic mountain track designed by Canada’s renowned course designer Les Furber. Every hole is a completely different golfing experience and each one offers a postcard view of the surrounding peaks. The big greens are friendly, but the ravines, deep bunkers and rolling terrain will keep any golfer honest. Rossland and Redstone make a great base from which to explore the other outstanding courses in the area — Christina Lake, Birchbank and the Castlegar Golf Club.

escribed by players as a postcard image on every tee box, Redstone boasts stunning conditions and championship quality greens. Located in the Monashee Mountains, the course cradles the lower elevations of the picturesque town of Rossland, while framing fantastic views of Red Mountain and the rest of the Rossland range to the north. Redstone is tree lined and features rocky outcroppings, ravines, creeks, ponds and white silica bunkers casting an amazing backdrop to an outstanding Les Furber signature layout. While the tips challenge the low cap golfer, the forward tees enable the recreational player to enjoy an abundant variety of golf holes. Be sure to join the locals for a post-round beverage in the classic log clubhouse. You can’t manufacture the kind of history that has been made there over the years. Redstone has firmly established itself as a must play.
