    Kaslo Golf Course opened in 1923, when there were about a dozen golf courses in all of British Columbia. In Kaslo, which was a larger community than it is today, some enthusiasts formed a company, raised some capital and began to generate interest in creating a course locally.

    Subscriptions provided enough capital to build 4 holes in 1923, and the following year a further 5 holes were carved out on the reasonably flat bench just south of the main area of the town, where the course is still located.

    In the beginning, a ladies' membership cost $10 and men's $15.
