A good vacation for a golf enthusiast includes spectacular golf courses, incredible wine choices, and fabulous food. Luckily, Kelowna is home to all three. A visit in the fall, during the Fall Okanagan Wine Festival and when fairways are lined with the beauty of ever-changing colours, turns a great golf vacation into a something truly special.

You can visit mid-week to take advantage of quieter roads and easier access to the tee and wine festival events, or spend your weekend swinging, sipping, and savouring the best Kelowna has to offer.

Kelowna golf courses are in terrific condition. Grass actually enjoys a rich growth spurt in the fall. In addition to the bright colours, now’s the time to enjoy a lush course that’s benefitted from a full season of grooming. Play every morning and enjoy a wine-tasting event in the afternoon, or skip a day of golf and enjoy a leisurely lunch with a lake view.

Kelowna is internationally renowned for its local fruit and produce but not every visitor is aware of the rich and diverse food scene. With top chefs and an abundance of dining options to choose from, Kelowna dining will please even the most knowledgable palates.

Staying in Kelowna puts you within a 20-minute drive of over 40 wineries. A visit between October 3 and 13, during the Fall Wine Festival, puts you in the center of over 80 special events. There are award-winning wine tastings for every preference, as well as food pairings, sommelier battles, live music, and more, happening throughout the entire Okanagan Valley.
