The Okanagan Valley in Canada?s British Columbia is packed with spectacular golf and extraordinary wine.
The last round had better be a good one, right? Time to end your golf trip to the Okanagan in style on The Quail course at the convenient Okanagan Golf Club. Designed to inspire even the toughest course critics (I know, I played with a bunch of them), The Quail has all the trimmings of a memorable golf course. There are elevated tees, straightforward holes and a healthy mix of doglegs, all culminating in a collection of holes that require virtually every club in the bag. Designed by Canada’s own Les Furber, the course plays more like a target-style course than a course where you can bomb away, making it a favorite among players who take pride in hitting accurate tee and approach shots. Speaking of shots, bring your camera. The Quail course has 18 worthy contenders for a photo to put on your desk or office wall.
There you have it! Great golf runs abundant in the Okanagan Valley, but playing golf is only the beginning. A visit here just isn’t complete without indulging your palate with all the fine wine and gourmet cuisine there is to offer. To get the scoop on the best golf in the area, visit www.spectaculargolf.com, and to really get a better understanding of the Okanagan beyond the golf, visit www.tourismkelowna.com. Both sites are wonderfully arranged and packed with everything you need to know to plan the perfect golf vacation in British Columbia.
