While mountain vistas are a natural feature at many BC golf courses, few can claim soothing post-game indulgences courtesy of Mother Nature.

The Radium Golf Group, for example, boasts two premier courses which showcase their settings to best advantage; here, The Springs Course sits high on the banks of the Columbia River, seamlessly blending heart-thumping challenges with naturally scenic views, while The Radium Course, framed by the Purcell and Rocky Mountain ranges, skirts along the border of Kootenay National Park. As a bonus, both courses have been extensively renovated, offering enhanced playability and an improved experience for golfers of all skill levels. Post-game pursuits? A soak in the famed hot springs promises a blissfully natural après-golf alternative. radiumresort.com; radiumhotsprings.com

Further south, Fairmont Hot Springs Resort offers classic, tree-lined fairways on the championship Mountainside Golf Course, while intricate water features and a strikingly beautiful backdrop entice on the Columbia River-lined Riverside Golf Course. Here, golf is a must, but young ones won’t be left out, thanks to Family Playcation packages that include one full day of camp, two nights at the resort and unlimited access to the area’s natural mineral hot springs — a soothing reprieve for adventurers, big and small. fairmonthotsprings.com
