Are you thinking about booking a golf vacation this year? Then you should consider visiting the Similkameen Valley.
British Columbia boasts over 300 golf courses, making it an exceptional holiday destination. Golf enthusiasts can wander greens tucked in rainforests, sprawled out on sweeping grasslands, and shaded by towering pine trees. If you’re looking for variety, beautiful BC can deliver.
Some of the most dramatic landscapes can be found as you journey through the Similkameen Valley, from Manning Park to Cawston. Explore your surroundings that are both stark and vibrant at the same time. And you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy the variety of executive and 18-hole courses dotting the route between Vancouver and the Alberta border.
You can start your golf experience at the Princeton Golf Club, established in 1928. It’s an 18-hole, par 72 championship public course located at the gateway to the Similkameen Valley on the Crowsnest Highway. Dine at Divots Bar & Grill while you’re there – you’ll find classic pub fare and some local originals on the menu.
Stay in one of the many motels in Princeton or, if you’re travelling in your RV, book a spot in the Princeton Golf Club RV Park and be steps away from the first tee. You’ll be disarmed by the hospitality and charmed by the surroundings.
If you’re intent on heading up the west side of the Okanagan Valley, you can make a stop at Twin Lakes Golf Course in Kaleden. It’s an 18-hole, regulation length course with stunning vistas, chipping and putting greens, and a driving range. Check in with the welcoming staff at the pro shop for cart and club rentals.
You’ll find a concession/snack shack in the clubhouse offering good food, friendly service, and a variety of local wines and micro-brewed beers. The outdoor patio provides a relaxing place to take in the incredible view overlooking the 1st, 9th & 10th holes. Want to stay for a few days? No problem. Reserve a spot at the Twin Lakes RV Park.
Heading southeast? You’ll find exceptional courses in the desert climate of Osoyoos and Oliver.
Visitors to the Similkameen Valley are struck by one thing: the genuine hospitality. Whether you’re touring the many wineries, cideries, or soaking in the warm breezes on the golf course, you’ll find a comfort that makes you feel like you’re at your home away from home.
