“Great fun”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I am not a golfer but I always tag along when my husband goes to play. The view of the mountains so close on all sides and the wind blowing thru the trees make it magical. It's fun to spot the turtles strolling around the greens, and watch out for drowned balls in the lake!

“One of best courses of Penticton area for sure”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

I really enjoy this course each time I play it as staff are nice, (big improvement though from a few years ago as they got rid of the rude guy in the pro shop), and course is challenging and in good shape but the red blocks on hole 7 are very unfair as unless you are a pro you will hit the branches of the tree before the water as set up that way to do so. It is good to make for new changes but to keep in mind most men that will play here are not pros and will then go in the water and get frustrated. And please have a marshal in place as even on a Friday the round was over 2 hrs for 9 holes and not right as not even a weekend yet. I have played 9 holes on this course in past with me and a buddy and took just an hr and 10 mins! Marshal please to avoid people taking 5 practice swings every shot and then going 5 feet or shanking it!

“Just wonderful”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

Mid sized course but with red tees that allow it to play like a par 5 9 hole course. Tough!!! Tricky greens, tucked in and not as accessible as you'd think. A true island green surrounded by old willows - tough! Restaurant needs updating but the food is really good and the service is like "down home" friendly. They also have very inexpensive rooms for stay n play. In the heart of wine country the best deal going!
