About Granite Pointe
Your experience through Nelson’s mountain golfing adventure at Granite Pointe Golf Course begins with park-like settings, generous fairways and some great water hazards. The back nine traverses through mountainous terrain with some holes offering elevated tee boxes. Our Three Aces, Holes 15-16-17, offer some very good scoring opportunities. We don’t like to brag, but #16 (our signature hole) was voted one of the top holes in BC. You’ll also notice a monster sized chunk of Granite partially blocking your view of the flag on #18.
Granite Pointe is rich with history dating back to 1919 when a group of men felt a golf course was absolutely essential for any town with pretension of being up to date. Granite Pointe’s first year of operations as a nine hole course was in 1920. Membership fees were $10 for men and $5 for ladies. A lot has changed since then (the course underwent a major overhaul and expansion to 18 holes in 1993), but it remains a vital part of the Nelson Community.
