Summerland Golf Club's location on Paradise Flats allows it to have contrasting layouts on the front and back nines that provide a variety of different challenges. The course begins on relatively flat terrain, offering a combination of links-style and tree-lined holes. The fairways are generous and player friendly. The opening tee is perched 75 feet above the fairway, providing a stunning view of the Okanagan Valley. As the golf course moves towards the back, the terrain gets hillier and more densely covered with Ponderosa Pines. The back nine demands accuracy and good putting skills with undulating greens and no less than five holes that border the immense Trout Creek Canyon. The course finishes with an excellent risk-reward par 5. A good drive will give golfers the chance to reach the green in two but careful maneuvering around the corner of the canyon is required.
