Twin Lakes Golf Resort in South Okanagan is situated in a beautiful valley surrounded by towering mountains covered with forests of firs and pines. It's part of the Okanagan Golf Trail, a group of courses in the Penticton, Oliver, and Summerland areas that each offers a diverse terrain and unique playing experience. The golf course full utilizes the dramatically undulating terrain, incorporating elevated tees, rolling fairways and sloped greens. The lofty elevations also provide stunning views across the rugged landscape. The seventh is the toughest hole with a large sand trap combined with a narrowed fairway. As far as difficulty goes, it's followed by the equally tricky 16th hole, which has a lengthy sand trap that spans almost the entire left side of the golf course. In addition to the golf course, Twin Lakes also has a short-game practice area with chipping and putting greens as well as a riving range.

This is a very forgiving course for the most part, great for beginners, it is a lot of fun to play with some challenging holes, especially 11,and 12. There is no active Resturant or cart wagon which is the only negative that I can say. They have a sandwich bar at the club house. The staff are very friendly and the course has been in excellent condition.

Great course and conditions coupled with some very interesting holes. The first hole is quite intimidating but more room on the fairway than you think. Hit it straight on #12, trouble is lurking everywhere..!

very affordable! My wife and I teed off at 3:10 and were done before 7pm. We were never rushed and only caught up to a few people near the eighteenth, very hot with no wind and quite a bit of smoke from nearby forest fire. Other than the smoke, course was in pretty good shape but the greens are very slow, probably because of the extended dry spell we have had this summer. We stayed at the Twin Lakes RV resort which made it really handy to play and stay.

Green where it should be.Good water conservation in the desert.Good greens and fairways.Not as green as other courses in the area but in good shape at a fraction of the cost.You can play here 3 to 8 times for the same price as playing once at other courses in the valley with similar challenge.
