At Canoe Creek our great teaching Pros have a first class Teaching Centre to work with.

In addition to our excellent driving range, our centre includes our PGA spec putting green as well as a designated chipping green with both sod and sand bunkers, all adjacent to Barr’s Bistro and our pro shop. We also have a second putting green flanking our number one tee boxes.

All our practice greens have been built and are maintained to the same exacting standard as our golf course.

Be sure to utilize our practice facilities before your next round and see what a difference it can make.

Group lessons are available as well as private sessions, and we offer a variety of packages to suit your schedule and your budget.

Cody will also be happy to help you with club selection and custom fittings, ensuring that you maximize your game with the right equipment for you.


Cody Bell | PGA of Canada Golf Professional

Born and raised in Salmon Arm, Cody began playing golf at the young age of five years old at the then called Shannon's Golf Course (now Club Shuswap). Addicted to the challenge and mental aspect of the game, Cody started to compete on the Zone 2 Junior Golf Tour at the age of 14 and began working at the newly opened Canoe Creek Golf Course in the spring of 2008. While attending Salmon Arm Secondary School he helped lead his team to a BC High School Sports Provincial Golf Title in 2010. After high school, he attended UBC Okanagan on an academic and golf scholarship. In his three years on the team, Cody qualified for the CCAA National Championships twice, was a two-time Academic All-Canadian, and PacWest Player of the Year in 2011.

He graduated in 2014 with a degree in Business Management with Honours and a year later decided to turn professional. Cody worked as an Assistant Professional at Canoe Creek in 2015, where he had great success on the IPGA Golf Tour and was 4th on the Order of Merit in his rookie year. Going into his 8th year at Canoe Creek and his 2nd year as a Professional, Cody looks to continue sharing his passion for the game and making each and every golfer's experience one to remember.
