It's mid-August and you haven’t had a chance to take a golf getaway to Kelowna yet. If this is you, don’t despair...now is a perfect time to book. 

Here are 10 reasons why fall is one of the best times to golf in Kelowna:

1. A golf course is a perfect place to experience the beauty of fall. As you play your round you can almost see the abundant colours of Kelowna change in front of you.

2. With 19 spectacular golf courses, all in different locations with varying landscapes, you’ll get a complete Kelowna fall experience right from the fairway.

3. You can choose to tee off during a crisp, clear Kelowna morning or wait until the afternoon to enjoy warm temperatures.

4. As Kelowna temperatures cool down from the average highs of 28°C during the summer months, the ground typically firms up. Catch a good drive in the right conditions and there's a chance you're going to see a lot more roll in the fairways.

5. With warm-but not too hot fall temperatures, it’s a good time to forgo the golf cart and take a walk. Aside from the obvious health benefits, when you're not focused on driving a cart, you can spend more time taking in your beautiful surroundings.

6. In addition to the bright colours, now’s the time to enjoy a lush golf course that’s benefitted from a full season of growing and grooming. With the heat of summer gone, the grass likes it better too!

7.  A fall visit also means lower hotel rates and fewer golfers heading to the first tee. Consider a mid-week getaway for the biggest fall travel benefits.

8. Fall is also harvest season, local Okanagan produce is abundant. Visit a fruit stand or farmers' market before heading home or enjoy the farm-to-table menus at many local Kelowna restaurants.

9. A visit to Kelowna is not complete without heading to a few wineries. After your round, enjoy the beautiful landscapes and vineyard views as the harvest begins.

10. Stay into October to experience the Okanagan Wine Festival, which features fabulous wine accompanied by great food, unique events, and breathtaking settings. Then, head up to the Myra Canyon Trestles and take in the beautiful panoramic views; you will not believe how good the views can get.
