    Got a round in yesterday at Rivers Edge. Greens were decent but the course was pretty wet still.

    Anyone know which other courses have opened or opening dates?

    Glen Eagles is always open haha.

    Pinebrook opened the range this weekend, but the course won't be open til first or second week of June (this was planned last year though, as they are doing a bunch of rebuilding).

    Elbow and all the PGC courses seem to be open. Lots of courses seem to require a foursome to book.

    yeah, males sense they aren't grouping you up with strangers, I think.

    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins' mullet.

    Are CoC driving ranges open? Would be nice to swing a club over the lunch hour once in a while.

    You need to call the Pro Shop for most places if you have less than a foursome.

    So I've already played more golf this year than the past two years combined. 25 rounds. Before Covid it was my sisters goal to use her membership more, so she basically dragged me along since only principal members could get tee times for most of May (left the husband and kids at home). But it's been great. Now leagues have started up and I've actually decided to play and I'm wondering why I ever got away from it in the first place.

    By all accounts it seems like golf is booming in the city again despite the economy. The pandemic and restrictions have made it one of the few recreational activities people can spend money on (an no spring and summer vacations either). Our club had a record number of rounds for May, and the last 9 holes didn't even open until the May Long Weekend. It's been crazy.

    I've been playing all over since the season opened a few weeks ago. We end up going 2-3 times a week sometimes since court's are shit and there's tons of time. I got a membership to the local club, which allows access to 4 different courses around the city, where it's half price every time I play and it's awesome. That being said, I still keep trying to go to courses where I haven't been before. Played at Springbank and enjoyed it there - that's the only in Calgary so far.

    We are planning a Golfing trip to Kelowna at the end of the month - wondering what courses should we look at booking? We'll be playing a round on Saturday and Sunday.

    Not sure there's been a better time to play Predator Ridge and Tower Ranch. Both have had booking deals for less than $150 (turns out all these BC courses realize that by telling Albertans to stay away, they don't get as much money) so definitely look online to see what they're offering. If you can stuff in 36 on one of the days, play both courses on Predator.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Did a quick look on Groupon and couldn't find any deals. But I will check up on Google. Predator Ridge has 36 holes? That's insane, might have to give that a go on Saturday if I can find bookings. If you know of any specific sites where they post these deals, then please let me know. Thanks.

    Predator is 45-60 mins from Kelowna. So if looking to stay local Gallaghers Canyon, Harvest Golf club, and Black Mountain are all solid. Tower Ranch is great too.

    Predator is ok, not worth the money though. I played it fo $100 last time, and I'd say that's a little more in line with the quality of the course. Ridge course is a little frustrating the first time you play it unless your with a local as there's quite a few completely blind shots that just make it a guessing game (yeah they have a yardage book, but it only does so much).

    Talking Rock is apparently one of the best in the okanagan, little bit of a drive from Kelowna, but I've heard it's a must play.

    I've only played a few times so far this year, as our club rebuilt 12 of the holes last fall/this spring and isn't open til June 20. I've been going to the range at lunch time most days though since I'm only a few mins from the course. Perfect way to break up the day.

    Talking rock is good, but its in the Schuswap.

    Hyde mountain is nice, if we are expanding the radius that far.

    Okay didn't realize Predator was that far out. That's gonna have to be a no-go for us then. We want to stay in Kelowna proper and try out a couple of courses there. So Tower Ranch is one option, what's a good second option?

    If you are looking for a good value then play Shannon Lake.

    Gallaghers canyon
    Black Mountain
    The harvest Club
    Okanagan golf club - Bear or Quail course

    All good options
