Kelowna is a great place to practice hitting that golf ball whether you need to work on your putting, pitching or driving skills, offering several driving ranges and putting greens for golf fans. Plus, with an average of only 37mm of rain per month during the summer season, you don’t have to worry about having to hit a golf ball under an umbrella as Kelowna is known for its fabulous weather.
Looking to practice and play a round of golf? Two Eagles in West Kelowna has a driving range, a practice putting green, and 18 holes that feature spectacular lake vistas. This mid-length facility is also family friendly with a gently sloping landscape for all ages. After you work up an appetite on the tee box, enjoy a meal or a beverage after your session at the golf course’s restaurant.
Practice every aspect of golf at The Kelowna Driving Range on Casorso Road. Choose from a short game chipping area, long-range targets from 50 to 300 yards, a putting green, and an 18-hole championship mini-golf course. Drive your golf balls from mats with adjustable tees and make sure you try aiming for one of the three target greens. You can also sign up for professional golf instruction from qualified and experienced staff. Afterward, relax at The Fox Pit, a licensed bar and grill on-site.
With sheltered and wide-open tees, The Golf Centre on Benvoulin Road is your complete golf practice facility, rain or shine! If you’re looking to practice your short game, there is a 35-yard area complete with sand traps and greens for chipping and putting. Whether you are a beginner or a regular golfer, certified CPGA instructors are also there if you’re looking for a private or a group lesson.
