Okanagan GC - Quail: #1

The Quail Course is one of two 18-hole championship courses that Okanagan Golf Club offers. Both golf courses play across a hilly landscape covered with forests, grassy meadows, and native wetlands. The older Quail Course winds around the mountainside, offering a more dramatic terrain and stunning views. The layout is slightly shorter than the Bear's 6,900 yards but the Quail is considered a touch more difficult. Multi-tiered fairways snake around a rocky bluff and the undulating greens spill across dramatic elevation changes. The target-style layout was created by Canadian designer Les Furber, who was a disciple of Robert Trent Jones. He skillfully incorporated the densely wooded hills to create a course that is both challenging and beautiful. Okanagan has created a name for itself that has garnered quite a local following since opening in 1994.

Okanagan GC - Bear: #18

Okanagan Golf Club offers two 18-hole courses, the Quail and the Bear. The Bear Course, the newer of the two golf courses, was created by the Nicklaus Design Group in 1999. The course features playable and receptive fairways that make it enjoyable for any skill level. While the golf course is longer than the older Quail Course, it is more approachable for beginners thanks to its gentler terrain. It still offers a fair amount of challenge though with towering pines lining the sculpted fairways and a number of strategically paced bunkers. Besides being an excellent round, the Bear is worth a visit simply for its beauty. When the sun pours in from the surrounding sagebrush hills there are few golf courses more scenic. In addition to the courses, Okanagan also offers a double-ended driving range with grass tees.
