Golf the Similkameen Valley

Planning a Golf Getaway? Consider the Similkameen Valley!

British Columbia boasts a remarkable 300+ golf courses, making it an ideal destination for your next vacation. Golf enthusiasts can traverse courses nestled in rainforests, sprawled across vast grasslands, and shaded by majestic pine trees. If you crave variety, beautiful BC has it all.

Embark on a scenic journey through the Similkameen Valley, spanning from Manning Park to Cawston, and discover some of the most breathtaking landscapes. Immerse yourself in surroundings that are simultaneously stark and vibrant. Whether you’re a seasoned golfer or a beginner, enjoy the diverse range of executive and 18-hole courses scattered along the route from Vancouver to 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.
