Owner description: Tobiano is situated in one of the most stunning, pristine and unaffected areas of the province. Capturing the essence of B.C.'s semi-arid desert climate, and panoramic vistas, here you will find some of the most remarkable landscape in the province. You will find yourself surrounded by hues of red soil, grey-green sagebrush and deep-blue lake. As you sense the sun on your face and quietly take in your surroundings you will experience nothing less than nature at its finest.Conveniently located 15 minutes outside of Kamloops - the fifth largest city, by population and economic prosperity in British Columbia, the master-planned community's 18,000 acres are comprised of hiking trails, an award winning golf course and stunning views. You'll find it all here at Tobiano. If you are searching for that perfect home, welcome to Tobiano, a place for everyone. Please note Tobiano is open for the 2017 golf season starting Saturday April 1st, 2017. See you on the tee. The Black Iron Restaurant is open every day 8am - 8pm.

Wow. One of the most picturesque golf courses we've ever played, in Canada, Mexico & the Carribean. Killer tough course. Needs to be on everyone's bucket list of top 100 courses.

This course is beautiful. Fabulous scenery and in excellent shape. Be very careful which tees you choose and if there is a significant wind then the next 4.5 hours of your life could be tough. When the wind is blowing it is like you are playing links golf in Ireland, check your ego at the door and keep it straight. Hard not to like the course but depending on the day, you might not like your score.

Thank TheFarkman

Thanks for the great - and honest - review, The Farkman! Love the comparison with links golf in Ireland... hard not to love that, even if our scores are never quite what we want either! Hope to see you on the tee again soon. Sincerely, Terry Smith, General Manager

We got a cheaper rate by booking after 2 pm. We arrived an hour and a half earlier and as there was no one playing, the starter let us on right away. Although temperatures were 30 C, it did not feel hot in the cart and shaded trees as there was also a nice wind coming through the valley.

Course was in great shape, but I wish I could say the same about my game.

Tobiano boasts outstanding views and provides a challenging track... not for the beginning golfer... bring your A game and this beautifully maintained course will demand your best game.. 5 sets of tees but even the forward tees require a strong golfer... greens are true and fast... highly recommend!!

This is a premier golf course. Challenging and you should consider playing the forward combo tees unless you are a single digit handicap. Best course we played in the Okanagan.
However the grill fell short. Ordered Pastrami Reubens got ham and cheese.
Server said the chef replied it was Corned Beef. What? No sauerkraut in sandwich. Special was Ham and Cheese. It was good BUT to insist a ham and cheese is Reuben is just plain not honest. One person does not eat Ham. How can that be? We just took it and ate our ham and cheese but we felt that staff was dishonest or ignorant.
Otherwise the golf was world class.

Thanks for your review and praise of our course, asfdave. We are very sorry to hear about your experience in our restaurant however. We strive for all aspects of our business to be world class, not just our course. We will definitely have a word with the restaurant staff to make sure such an issue does not occur again. Once again, we really appreciate your feedback. We do hope you will visit again so that we can improve on your experience. Terry Smith, General Manager
