We played 18 holes today on a very hot, sunny day. Greens were fast and course had some challenging holes, with sand, water, doglegs, etc. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were all well maintained. Only negative was lack of signage.

A real hidden gem of a course! Kept in very nice shape - challenging but great fun to play. Not for the beginner! Very nice clubhouse with small deli/cafe. The front 9 is walkable - you get a workout for sure. Price is too high and cart rental is highest I have ever seen - however if you have spare... More

The course itself was amazing. But the price was over the top. At 80.00 person plus cart I would expect better signage on the course denoting what hole you were playing and the layout of the hole. To have to look at the back of the card to see the layout is a little amateurish. Also having to park at... More

Informal casual fast food but all home made. Prices good. Staff very nice. The owner was there too and extreemly nice to me and to all. This place has cafe on the one side, and a lounge on the other side. Golfers always nice too, even to a stranger. Family atmosphere. Join the gang! Food very good, clean, fast and... More

Even though some of the greens had just been punched and sanded, the greens putted very nicely. We were up here as a group of 16 players and our biggest issue with the course is that they have not registered with Golf Canada and thus we could not post our scores as being official scores for handicap purposes. Course still... More

First of all thank you for playing us. As you say we lack golfers. Unfortunately many golf courses do. In any event we are always in great shape and appreciate you mentioning our greens. Sorry about Golf Canada and scoring you handicaps. We have tried to be part of Golf Canada but we do not have members and Golf Canada... More

I have played many courses in the area. Always love coming to your facility! Your shop staff is great. Especially your Head Pro Jesse, and his assitant Kelly. Was sad to hear that Jesse moved on, but still enjoyed the round. Grounds are in top notch shape! Always a great time at your course! Will be back again!

Thank you for your comments about your time with us. We love hearing nice things about our course and especially our team. We hired Jesse a few years ago based on his great outgoing personality and moved him to Heads Pro soon after. He was offered an opportunity at another course that was too good to turn down. We miss... More

not worth $100.00 to play stupid par 5 on back-come on who designed that silly hole?? too many dog legs-di dyou run out of real estate?? this course is only worth $50.00 w/cart, taxes in-NO MORE! no half way houses, no water, a bad design, and you wonder why it isn't busy?? Wake up owners!

Actually if you listened or read the large sign on each cart you just call and we will deliver water or whatever to any hole any time. Better than a snack shack. In addition we do have a half-way house as our pro shop and bistro are between 9 and10. Most like the design but we admit no course design... More

The course was demanding but fair....greens were in pristine condition. Excellent views and several elevation changes. I would give the layout and condition an A+. The clubhouse is very nice with a good pro shop and very friendly staff. The only thing this golf course still needs are paved cart paths, GPS in the golf carts, better signage directing players...

Went with some business friends and had a great time at this tough course. Blind fairways, meandering long and narrow in some parts but managed to shoot in the mid 80's. very interesting golf course, birds everywhere. The scenery is beautiful and the ponds and waterfalls are well designed. I liked the clubhouse for the decor and the homemade sandwiches... More

A very well designed course. Something for all golfers. Some links holes, some mountain golf. Doesn't have the same quality of views as courses like predator ridge or the rise, but is a much more fun course to play. Greens and fairways are immaculate. Staff is awesome. Reasonably priced. My favorite of the courses I've played in the Okanagan.

WOW what a great review, thank you! We are happy you consider our course the best in the Okanagan, what a fabulous comment for us to hear! Dave Barr designed Canoe Creek to be fun and fair, his words, and we love it when you enjoyed it. Our maintenance guys will love the condition comment. Thank you. David More
