Golf course now open

Golfers are back on the links at Kettle Valley Golf Club in Rock Creek.

The Kettle Valley Golf Course is open for the 2015 season. Taking on the role as clubhouse manager is Sam Hall, replacing Krisi Goddard who has moved on to the grounds keeping department.

Sam, along with course manager Aaron Rexin, invited the Times to stop by to get a picture announcing the opening of the course for the new season.

Judging by the delicious homemade cookies that Sam brought out there will be plenty of satisfied diners at the golf club this year.

She describes the upcoming menu as “good food; fresh stuff” with signature salads, good burgers and, “a lot more homemade stuff” and both she and Aaron invite the public to stop in for lunch or dinner.

They are planning some signage for the highway that will help let people know the restaurant is open to the public.

The clubhouse itself has been given some TLC over the past winter. The door between the entryway and the till and grill has been widened and an interior wall has been opened up to reveal a framed glass window that was part of the original clubhouse building before the addition.

“The changes make the whole place feel a lot more open and inclusive,” says Sam.

For the first few weeks they will serve soups and chillies, garlic bread, maybe a sandwich. As the season picks up a bit the restaurant will have consistent hours— and, according to Sam will feature killer butter tarts and fresh baking on a regular basis.

She talked of her EBTKS Salad—everything but the kitchen sink, saying she plans to offer fresher options, not so much fried food.

“Come for a cup of coffee and a cookie or anything right up to a full meal,” said Sam.

Both she and Aaron were born and raised in the Kettle Valley—so what customers at the golf course experience is real local hospitality.

Sam said they both are looking forward to welcoming everyone back, and hope to make new friends this year as well.

As of last Friday, the course is open. Spring rates are $20 plus tax.
