About Us

Local to scenic and beautiful Rossland, BC, Redstone Resort is home to the only Les Furber “Signature” course in Canada. Ask any Canadian golfer who has created some of the greatest golf courses and we’ll bet Les Furber’s name is first on the list!

Having designed more than 60 premier golf courses across Canada and remodeled 52 others, Furber is a veritable national treasure alongside the Canadian Mounted Police and hockey.

Based in Kimberly, British Columbia, and one of the most popular golf course architects in Canada, Les Furber and his company Golf Design Services Ltd in 2007 have designed courses in the US, the first 18-hole course in Cuba, and several in Europe. 

Furber-designed Redstone Resort is a stunning 18-hole alpine course that boasts beautiful and meticulously kept USGA greens. Nestled in the Monashee mountains, Furber himself says the natural beauty of Redstone is second to none.

The origins of Redstone Resort date back to the spring of 1922. The first golf course was constructed on lands donated and loaned by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company on what was the Floyd Ranch. The rental fee was a whopping $1 per year!

The course’s clubhouse opened in July of that year, christened with an afternoon tea and dance in the evening. The club hosted its first tournament that September with an entry fee of only fifty cents.

It offered local golfers a temporary course until a new one opened five years later, further up the valley, with a brand new log clubhouse. The brothers Stone, Roy and Reg, the first pro at the course, came to work at the club in the late 30s.  

The Stones founded the Rossland-Trail open in 1946 along with the first Pro-Am event in the Kootenays. In 1968, with the help of Peter McIntyre, built the 9 hole Birchbank course near Trail along the Columbia River, thus expanding the Rossland-Trail Club to 27 holes.

The brothers, along with Reg’s wife Ruby also an avid golfer with her own list of event wins, would dominate the West Kootenay golf scene for almost 30 years, winning open events across the region. They were influential in all areas of the Kootenay golf scene, advising on the design and rebuilding of many golf courses between Rock Creek and Elkford, BC.

With the redevelopment of Rossland Golf Course in 2006, it was renamed ‘Redstone’ – an homage to historic Red Mountain and Reg Stone, the course’s first golf pro and respected organizer.

When you play a round of golf at Redstone Resort with friends and family, you’re getting an extraordinary experience on the links at an affordable price – green fees and rentals.

Redstone Resort understands the importance of community and giving back. We are thrilled to help a variety of organizations raise the funds they need through a range of campaigns. We take advantage of our ability to host incredible tournaments and events to help generate significant funds. 

In 2021, Redstone helped local organizations raise over $30,000. Rossland and Trail non-profits were able to tee off for their respective golf fundraisers again this summer. 

For example, at the Forget Me Not Mixed Open tournament, the $50 admission went directly to the local Alzheimer’s project: Garden of Gratitude Project, which raised $7,544. The Canadian Tire Jumpstart program raised more than $13,000, thanks to a match from the national retailer. The Trail Youth Baseball golf tournament raised $5,687, Rossland Sr. Warriors raised $3,008, and Greater Trail Minor Hockey Cinderella fund which helps minor hockey players in need of financial assistance, raised $6,344.

Other organizations that Redstone supports include the Rossland Arena Revitalization Project and the JL Crowe Grads.
