18 holes of golf

The Rise Golf Club is situated 400 meters above Okanagan Lake, providing stunning views of the water and surrounding valley. Fred Couples paired up with Gene Bates to design the course, skillfully manipulating fairway width, landing area design, and hazard placement in order to make a golf course that both a seasoned professional could enjoy as well as a high handicapper. The landscape's natural wetlands, including Moose Pond on the 12th hole, were carefully preserved and incorporated into the design. The par-3 15th hole is the course's trademark. This hole plays from an elevated tee that sits 100 feet above the green, which is also framed by a large pond. Opened in 2008, The Rise Golf Club is one of the area's newest but it has quickly become a local favorite.
