|People Are Buzzing About Talking Rock|
One Shuswap area facility that gets near universal raves from golfers is the well regarded Talking Rock Golf Resort & Quaaout Lodge Resort .
While the name “Talking Rock” recognizes ancestors who recorded historic events by painting or carving on large rocks, these days, the talking is being done by golfers who are giving this course consistently positive reviews.
Talking Rock is located near Chase, BC, midway between Salmon Arm and Kamloops along the shores of Little Shuswap Lake.
Owned and operated by the Little Shuswap Indian First Nations Band, Talking Rock was designed by Cooke Carleton International.
Design architects Wayne Carleton and Graham Cooke have worked with First Nations in the past, most recently on the award-wining Dakota Dunes in Saskatchewan.
“It’s a dynamic property with some very interesting holes and great views across Little Shuswap Lake,” said Cooke.
“Golfers will notice a nice transition from the front nine to the back, from lower lands to the higher, powerful properties on the back nine. There are a lot of pine trees on the property as well. It’s a very sandy-based property as well and that’s enabled us to produce some rugged bunkers. We’ve had to maintain a very formal relationship with the trees. We think we’ve come up with an attractive look and we like the routing plan.”
