"It’s great, obviously, for Tobiano Golf Course, great for the Tobiano community, great for golf in Kamloops and golf in B.C.," Tobiano owner Michael Ternier told KTW.

"More specifically, for us, it brings us to the core of a lot of peoples’ golf thoughts. Hopefully, it will make it easier to develop the hotel and some of the other properties at Tobiano that are tied in with golf."

Tobiano architect Thomas McBroom accepted the award during a virtual ceremony.

The World Golf Awards celebrate excellence in golf tourism, world-class courses and golf destinations.

A nomination process was followed by a worldwide voting event involving golf professionals and public golf consumers.

There were 20 nominees in the Canada’s Best Golf Course category.

"It is going to broaden the reach of the Tobiano name," Ternier said. "It’s going to help attract more people to this area."
