The Okanagan Valley in Canada?s British Columbia is packed with spectacular golf and extraordinary wine.
Time to tee it up again. This time, the course is Gallagher’s Canyon, where unlike the previous courses that held a hospitable resort feel, Gallagher’s Canyon will have you feeling like a country club member, even if it’s just for the day. The course, designed by Bill Robinson, resembles a true mountain course with loads of elevation changes and topographical variety. Not exceptionally long, measuring only 6,802 yards from the tips, Gallagher’s Canyon makes up for it with a series of uphill-downhill approach shots, requiring precise club selections. The par-3s might sting if you aren’t paying attention, but the par-5s are a hoot. If that’s sounds like too much of a challenge, consider the mid-length 9-hole Pinnacle course. It’s a lot easier. After golf, rinse down some fabulous food in the clubhouse and play Gallagher’s Canyon again!
