Wow – already October! Why does the summer always fly by so quickly? But we have good news, especially for those avid golfers who want to squeeze in all the golf they can! October brings with it fresh mornings, sunny afternoons twinged with crisp breezes, and evenings with that special amber light… in short, the perfect conditions for a fall round of golf! And with 19 courses in the Kelowna vicinity, there are many, many options.
Kelowna is gaining a reputation as a key Canadian golf destination, thanks to our critical mass of golf courses (pretty much one for every 10 square kilometers, per capita), and a wealth of those special extras that make a golf trip memorable (wine country, dining, recreation, etc). This year, Tourism Kelowna and 15 local courses teamed up to offer a new golf reservations system at www.GolfKelowna.com which has been popular with visitors. You can actually book tee times, accommodations, and get travel info all from one spot. For those last few weeks of golf this year, we are featuring some incredible deals for golf+accommodation packages – so if you’re thinking about reaching out to those buddies from afar to join you for some gorgeous fall golf in Kelowna – now’s the perfect time.
Here’s a recent article on SCOREGolf by Peter Robinson, which raves about the golf experience in Kelowna. To see other golf articles on our area, check out our Articles page on the Tourism Kelowna website and have a browse! As you can see, there’s quite a bit of excitement nationally about golfing in Kelowna. We are also having fun this year with a campaign called “Epic Holes” in which our local courses each selected their signature hole and gave insider tips on how to play it. There’s a contest associated with this campaign which is still open, so check it out!
