One of my latest experiences was aimed to seek out the scenic value in the Kootenay region of British Columbia. This region features seven golf courses sprinkled around the charming towns of Kimberley and Cranbrook nestled between the Purcell and Rocky Mountain ranges. All seven of their golf courses are within a 24-minute drive of each other, which makes it a perfect spot for a filthy golf trip.
Every great golf destination, in addition to good golf, has a distinct sense of place which helps elevate the experience into a uniquely memorable one. Located in the beautiful Okanagan Valley with five golf courses, sprawling orchards, wineries, brew pubs, beautiful lakes, beaches, and a longer golf season than much of Canada, Vernon has that sense of place.
