Many say the best golf vacations are right here in the Okanagan BC! With over 40 golf courses, you have unlimited choices for a golfing whether you're looking for luxury play & stay resorts, or you simply want to enjoy a round or two with kids and family!
The Interior British Columbia golf season begins in March or April, depending on the weather, and in some areas as early as February.
We often see people golfing as late as November!
Personally, we're not really avid golfers, but we do like to get out now and then to play easy par 3 courses that offer a great challenge for every skill level - and it's just plain relaxing.
Those who know us, though, agree that we should stick to the local mini golf courses where we can't tear up the fairways ;-)
Nevertheless, we've found all the Okanagan BC golf courses, public, semi private courses, and RV golf resorts.
We've included some helpful information on yardages, green fees, par's, and other golf related stuff that you will find helpful in planning your golf vacations in the Okanagan Valley.
We've also created maps along with the courses in each region of the valley, to help you find a specific course by location. Clicking on the maps will give you more information about each course.
Many golf resorts and hotels in the Okanagan offer a wide range of deals on packages for golf vacations - you can find almost anything you want from a cheap weekend golf stay and play package to a luxury golf and spa resort getaway.
Some great deals can be found at hotels like Best Western, the Ramada, Accent Inns, Days Inn, Sandman Hotels and Coast Hotels.
Booking well in advance is highly recommended.
An example of a package, if you're here for just a couple of days, could offer 1 night accommodation, 2 people sharing with 2 rounds of golf (1 per person) and a power cart (shared), a continental breakfast, and of course wireless Internet, parking and other usual hotel amenities for a pretty good price.
That's not bad at all. The choices are really varied, and shopping around is well worth the effort.
There's also a few luxury accommodations that offer stay and play golf packages if you're looking for a more upscale experience.
Predator Ridge Resort in Vernon, Spirit Ridge Resort in Osoyoos, Delta Grand Okanagan Resort and The Cove Lakeside in West Kelowna are beautiful luxury resorts.
Predator Ridge, one of the most popular in the region, is a 36 hole facility. Their 'Ridge' course was named Score Golf's Best New Course in Canada for 2010, and you can customize any vacation package.
No matter where you stay and golf, one thing is for certain... you'll be surrounded by beautiful sun-drenched landscapes, miles of greenery, amazing views and accommodations equipped with everything you need to make your golf vacations in the Okanagan BC memorable.
