36 Holes – 2 Distinct Experiences
The finest option for a round of golf in the heart of the South Okanagan Valley’s wine region, we invite you to experience Canada’s premiere desert-style golf club, complete with plush conditioning, warm hospitality and two very different golf courses in one location … everyone is welcome!
In the Heart of Canada’s Wine Country
Established officially in 1973, Osoyoos Golf Club brings together ideal desert climate and picturesque golf with two full-length courses boasting the longest season in the Okanagan. The Park Meadows course is a pleasurable “resort-style” course that is walker friendly amidst a park-like setting, while the Desert Gold course brings a new and unique links-style golf experience. Perched high above the Town of Osoyoos and sculpted in the environs of a desert mountainside, golfers will be rewarded by precision shot making and captivated by views of Osoyoos and its surrounding orchards, vineyards, and Lake Osoyoos below. The courses were built with a keen eye on the environmental protection of the unique antelope brush ecosystem and the Club established a desert sanctuary area to protect and preserve the habitat for the future. A state of the art irrigation system maintains the lush playing conditions throughout the heat of the summer.
Osoyoos Golf Club is a public club that offers membership opportunities. A stopover on your next golf outing and we are confident the Osoyoos Golf Club will become your golf destination of choice. Finally, don’t forget to set aside some time to stop in at the Greenside Bar & Grill and say hello. We can’t wait to meet you!
Looking back … a bit of history:
Play initially began on nine holes designed by Jack Reimer in April of 1973. The course was an instant success and by, 1979 a second nine was urgently needed to accommodate the growing number of members and visitors wanting to play the course. Again Mr. Jack Reimer was contacted to design and build the additional holes, and in April of 1981 the Club was a full 18 holes.
The popularity of the game, and the course, allowed for the addition of a third nine. Boyd Barr designed and constructed the new holes that opened in the fall of 1994. The three nines appropriately named the “Park”, the “Meadows” & the “Desert” each provide a unique golf experience and in combination they offer many varied 18 hole rounds!
After many years of expanding and renovating of the original clubhouse the Club sensibly moved forward again with the construction of a magnificent new 13,000 sq ft clubhouse which opened in 2001. Providing dining rooms and extensive patio decks overlooking the greens, fairways and Osoyoos Lake itself, the Mediterranean inspired clubhouse design has become an icon of the “new Osoyoos”.
Never able to stand still, in 2005 the members of the Osoyoos Golf Club voted to expand to 36 holes and in August of 2006, the Desert Gold Course was opened to rave reviews.
