“" But Stay out of the Rough "”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

A group of us played Tower Ranch, yesterday...what a challenge. The course is in fabulous shape with fairways like plush carpets and greens like tabletops. This course can be a bit tricky for short hitters but most of the fairways are very wide. There are few flat greens and most have two and sometimes three levels. Most flat putts will always " break to the lake ". The views of the valley, city and the lake are breathtaking. The layout of the course can be seen from the main access road so a first timer can decide if he/she is up to the challenge. This course cannot be walked unless the walker is followed by an ambulance or at least a paramedic on a mountain bike. A great golf experience.

“Tough course with fantastic views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

We found this course challenging and somewhat intimidating. As average (Handicaps from 15-22), but avid golfers we have played a variety of high end courses. This trip includes Tower Ranch, The Rise (Vernon, B.C.), Predator Ridge (both courses), and Kananaskis. This course is not for the faint of heart with lots of elevation change, fairways and greens that roll towards the valley and is likely unwalkable unless you are in tremendous shape. The pro shop was hospitable and helpful throughout the check in. The service in the restaurant a little slow in the morning, but good after the round. The course carts felt challenged by the demands of hills on the pathways making us wonder at times if we'd have to get out and push. The paths are well marked and distances are available on sprinkler heads throughout the 18 holes. It was a fun round and having played it once it will be good to return with a better awareness of the layout. The incredible views of the Okanagan Valley and Kelowna stretch from North and Lake Country south towards Peachland and Summerland make a drive up to the clubhouse worth the trip. Enjoy them with a meal - the food is good.

“Golf course with a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

This was our first visit to Tower Ranch and we were very happy we went. It is a tricky but fun course. Each hole presents a new challenge. Amazing views of Kelowna as you play. We plan to go back. We golfed 4 courses in the area during this trip and Tower Ranch was by far our favourite!

“True test of golf and focus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Wonderful, challenging layout of golf that can be enjoyed by all - if you choose the correct tees to play.
The most difficult thing to do was focus on the course and not the surrounding views and grand vistas - especially from the Back 9.
Well worth putting this golfing experience high on your list of courses to play in the Okanagan Valley - you won't walk away disappointed (as long as you bring your camera!)

“OMG!!!! The Best!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Fairways were perfect from one end to the other. Although I missed a few fairways due to the tough layout. The greens were perfect. Lots of roll and topography! Scenery was spectacular. Love the elevated tee shots across ravines and down to greens. Definitely planning golf trip around this course. Staff were great.
