Canyon Golf Club
consistently as one of the top courses in all of Canada, Gallagher’s
Canyon is a fantastic test of golf and a must-play when you are
in the Okanagan.
to nearly 6800 yards from the tips, Gallagher’s Canyon certainly
has plenty of yardage to keep your driver busy but it is how you
position yourself for your shot on the green that is the most important
thing at Gallaghers.
A great example
of the Gallagher’s brand of golf is the 414 yard par 4 eleventh.
A virtually straight-away hole with a two-level fairway, golfers
are left with an interesting decision on the tee: Do you pull out
the driver and try and reach the second tier of the fairway, 260
yards away, or do you hit a more conservative 3 wood and go at the
green with a mid or long iron? The ball really carries in the dry
Okanagan air so 260 yards is not unreachable, but if the drive is
just a little inaccurate you will left with a challenging shot to
a green that is defended by a steep fescue-strewn hill on the right
and by bunkers both in front and behind. Executing a well thought
out strategy will get you on the green in regulation. Fail to execute
your plan and you will have to work some magic to get down in regulation.
you round of golf be sure to relax on the sunny deck at Gallagher’s
and take in some of the phenomenal local wines and ales that have
made the Okanagan one of Canada’s favourite summer playgrounds.
This year come
and enjoy golf the way it was meant to be played. Come golf Gallagher’s
