Vernon Golf Courses
Already the top resort in Western Canada, Predator Ridge is only going to get bigger and better. On 1,200 beautiful acres of spectacular, varied terrain, it will, when fully built-out, be a community of 2,100 homes. The Doug Carrick-designed 18-hole course will take golf to the next level in the summer of 2010. Also, the much-anticipated Sparkling Hill Resort opened up right next door.
Vernon Golf & Country Club:
Established in 1913, the Vernon Golf and Country Club has matured like a fine wine. The towering lombardy poplars and the majestic weeping willows draw attention to this lovely course situated between downtown Vernon and Kalamalka Lake.
The Rise Golf:
Offering a spectacular golf experience, the Fred Couples Signature Course at the Rise is the culmination of a ten-year partnership between legendary golf course designer Gene Bates and one of the tour’s most popular players - Freddy 'Boom Boom' Couples. The centerpiece of this Okanagan Valley community is set amid 250 acres of The Rise’s finest golfing real estate. Five tees on each hole and breathtaking views of the Okanagan Valley wilderness; truly a masterpiece in every respect.
Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club:
Located across from the historic O'Keefe Ranch, Spallumcheen offers two distinct challenges - a 9 hole, par 35 Executive course and an 18 hole Championship layout of 6423 yards. Maturely landscaped with water in play on 9 holes.
Hillview is a fast playing 18 hole golf course with short but challenging holes. At par 57, only three of Hillview's fairways rate par four, but this does not mean golfers will have an easy time here for this is no chip and putt. Eight lakes (connected by a wandering creek) plus several sand traps are in play over the course's 3375 yards, making this a target golf course where accuracy is paramount.
