Skeena Valley Golf and Country Club Box 865 Terrace BC 1-800-770-2542 svgc@monarch.net

Aspen grove

Located 2 hours east of Prince Rupert this course is the nicest course between Prince Rupert and Prince George and one of the best maintained and prettiest courses I have ever seen. Skeena Valley G&CC offers the standard fare: fully stocked clubhouse, restaurant and bar, driving range, putting green and lessons from their very friendly and out going pro Kevin Jeffries. What they offer that isn't standard fare is a rock solid layout situated in the middle of the most beautiful mountain setting I have ever experianced. I have always said that if I had one more round to play, and I knew the weather was going to be good, it would be at the 108 G&CC. However after playing Skeena Valley I am not so sure.

It opens up with a 480 yard, from the blue tees, par five that can be reached in two
but to do so you have to be able to work both your tee ball and second shot to match the up and down and running fairway. The number one handicap hole is #7. From the blue or white tees this fairway looks a long way off and seemingly impossible to hit. The tee shot must be turned right to left and you have to hit what looks to be a small ribbon thick fairway. Pull it left and you are in the deep bush and behind the hazard stakes, push it right and you are off the fairway in the trees and in the red stake hazard area. Your second shot will probably be 200 yards (longer if you lay up to avoid the trouble off of the tee) leaving you a slightly uphill shot to a very small green. This green, like all the others, is comparable to anything Whistler or the Okanagan has to offer. The par 3 holes range from 166 yards long to a head cover pulling 225 yards long and all are fraught with trouble. The wind also plays a factor on all your shots including your putts. The day I played the wind was blowing so hard that there was sand been blown out of bunkers. Making me feel a bit like Lawrence of Arabia as I walked up the last few holes. $35.00 weekday rates and $40.00 weekend rates make this course all that much better.

Player's Tip

Even on the longest and most difficult holes they always leave a landing area for those
of us who hit it short or crooked. To score well here you have to play smart and even if the yardage indicates you having to hit driver off of the tee play an iron or a fairway wood to better insure hitting the fairway. Most greens have zones around them that allow you to miss and still have a chance for par. Never short pin yourself here. The speed of the greens will kill you.

Accommodations

While staying in Terrace accommodations were provided by the Terrace Sandman Inn. Located about 10 minutes from the course the staff made us feel at home and the room was immaculately clean and well priced. Sandman Inn Terrace is located at 4828 Highway 16 West Terrace, British Columbia V8G 1L6 Canada. Look up this Sandman and all the rest of the Sandman chain at: www.sandmanhotels.com
