Natural beauty, abundant sunshine, crystal clear lakes and an extended golf season are all reasons that Kelowna is truly a golfers paradise!
Add in impeccably manicured fairways, incredible vistas, towering pines, natural grasses and majestic willows and the golf experience you are searching for can be found at any of Kelowna’s 19 spectacular golf courses.
Now imagine yourself playing where the pros do. Kelowna plays host to one of the three Mackenzie Tour - PGA Tour Canada events held in British Columbia each year. Okanagan Golf Club’s The Bear course, designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, provides a challenging qualifying site.
Gallagher’s Canyon Golf & Country Club hosts the four-day main event, which starts on June 13th, and is known as the GolfBC Championship. The tournament brings golf tour players to compete on The Canyon’s challenging fairways and well protected greens while trying not to be distracted by the awe-inspiring vistas.
You can turn your Kelowna golf getaway into one you will always remember by watching the pros one day and playing the next. To experience both of GolfBC’s Kelowna properties to their fullest why not play a round of golf on Okanagan Golf Club’s The Bear or The Quali one day, and then be a GolfBC Championship spectator at Gallagher’s Canyon the next?
