Set in the hills above beautiful Mara Lake in the Shuswap region of BC, MaraHills was designed by master architect Les Furber. When you play a Furber course, you can expect two things: 1) You will have to use every shot in the bag; and 2) You can’t afford to take any tee shot lightly. MaraHills is no exception, with the course winding through thick evergreen forest and across ravines to give golfers equal amounts of beauty and challenge. The MaraHills experience includes Geronimo, the 4th hole, boasting a 483 yard par 4 from the back tees! The view and the yardage for a par 4 are both extraordinary, with a tee box sitting 265 feet above the fairway and an exquisite view of the lake. A solid 3 wood will launch your ball over the trees to settle impressively on the fairway. With the elevation difference, it is not uncommon for shots to reach an incredible 300 yards off the tee.
Golfers will discover that over-hitting that high-compression ball, resulting in even the slightest fade or draw will have plenty of time to amplify itself. Shots not hit dead solid may sail into the hillside forest—never to be seen again. If you do manage to resist the urge to knock some dimples off the ball and find yourself in the fairway, you will be left with a mid to long iron to a green that is protected to the right and left, but wide open to a bump and run up the middle. Get a par on this memorable hole and you will have a great story to tell. Get a bogey or higher and there will be sympathy from your fellow golfers back at the Clubhouse.
With incredible views and four sets of tees to choose from, golfers of all levels will be able to enjoy all that MaraHills has to offer. This year, come and golf one of the most “Scenic and Challenging Courses in British Columbia”.
