Omineca Golf Course North Side Road Vanderhoof BC (250) 567-2920

Aspen grove

Omineca Golf Course is located in Vanderhoof, British Columbia. This lovely community is one hour west of Prince George.

The first 11 holes are a good start to a good course. There are enough tree lined and dandelion strewn fairways and well-kept greens (and loads of red stakes) to keep your wits sharp. This all helps to make this part of the course fun and challenging. But holes 12-14 will have you struggling to stay awake. You're on the flat open valley bottom. Doublewide fairways with loads of room to miss both left and right. You get the feeling you can just let it rip and who cares where it lands. Then you hit the stretch, 15th through 18th. Number 15 is a strong par four 397 yards long with the highway only 40 feet to your right, and marked by white stakes. Number16 is a 560-yard par five and a true 3 shot hole. The par three 17th hole will leave you swallowing a little bit before pulling the trigger. Omineca closes strong.

The number one handicap hole is Number 6, a 378-yard par 4. The trick here is the red stakes that run down the right hand side and the heavy trees that run down the left. Looking down the right hand side you will see a large knot of trees surrounded by red stakes. This knot of trees is right on the corner of the dogleg and pushes far enough into the fairway to catch a lot of errant tee shots. Behind those trees, and behind the red stakes, is a deep over grown gully. And even if you find your ball you will probably have no shot to the fairway or green. The green is small and surrounded by red stakes and a deep gully behind it if you go long. The only break you get on this monster is the green itself. Relatively flat and only medium fast.

If you can over look the rough edges and remember you are paying about thirty five bucks for a full 18 holes of golf, then Omineca Golf Club invites you to come and play. They have an outstanding bar and restaurant, driving range, practice green and a full service pro shop, complete with lessons from Head Pro Bill Stephens.

Player's Tip

The short gravel road leading to the course will pop out your fillings. Drive slowly and show some courtesy to those passing by you. As well I played this whole area during an unusual dry season. That may explain some of the roughness but not all of it.

Accommodations

While making the trek across Northern BC Tom stayed at the Sandman Inns. You can find the Sandman Inn chain at: www.sandmanhotels.com
