The par 5 15th hole at Tom McBroom designed Tower Ranch in Kelowna is as good as it gets.
The Story – It took me a few years to truly take advantage of annual business travel. Tack on an extra day and often it affords me a chance to play 36 in a location I can’t easily get to. My plans to venture to Kelowna before a work conference was a highlight of the 2017 season. Tower Ranch was visually stunning, incredibly challenging (for someone who neither brought their A or B game) but so, so much fun to play and experience. It would be a very tough course to walk and with a four hour drive back to Vancouver planned afterward I didn’t want to push it. The views of the city and the lake are flawless. If you’re fortunate enough to play here make sure your camera is well charged, it will get a great workout. This tee shot from 15 is one of several on the back nine which I look back at with great regularity.

It’s easy to get distracted by the views at Tower Ranch
The back nine at Tower Ranch moves to the highest part of the course and brings spectacular golf holes like this into play.
