The region bordered on the south by the 49th parallel is located in the Canadian desert. Yes, that’s desert! The arid climate makes for a recreational playground where summer temperatures can soar. The quality of golf is outstanding, from well-established, 100-year-old facilities to a couple of new kids on the block and freshly renovated layouts.
Access by air through the Penticton Airport (YYF) has created convenience in recent years. Travelers can also snake their way along Highway 97, the Okanagan Valley’s main thoroughfare, and enjoy great golf from Summerland to Osoyoos. And don’t forget, this is wine country!
