Par 72
Length 6843
Slope 137
Rating 72.8
Type Private
The Rise Golf Club is situated 400 meters above Okanagan Lake, providing stunning views of the water and surrounding valley. Fred Couples paired up with Gene Bates to design the course, skillfully manipulating fairway width, landing area design, and hazard placement in order to make a golf course that both a seasoned professional could enjoy as well as a high handicapper. The landscape's natural wetlands, including Moose Pond on the 12th hole, were carefully preserved and incorporated into the design. The par-3 15th hole is the course's trademark. This hole plays from an elevated tee that sits 100 feet above the green, which is also framed by a large pond. Opened in 2008, The Rise Golf Club is one of the area's newest but it has quickly become a local favorite.

Stunning test of golf

Beautiful course with challenging tee shot's and hard fast greens. I think when they have a club house and driving range it will be up there with some of the top clubs in BC.

Altitude Sickness. (thats a good thing)

Gem! Pay the money, Bring some extra balls and play this course whenever you can! Found a wicked local rate on thursdays. (gotta show the creds) Lucky to live close by and plays the old layout, then the new layout, the old club/shack, then the temp tent. And hopefully this spring when i push all the way up the hill. I will find a beauty clubhouse! Great course. The views are breathless. The 17th green, standing 150yrds out...... STOP, Look, and just say nothing...... just...... you gotta see it. Ive played this baby about 20 times, and i think i finally can play smart around this place. It seems to trick you into hitting that driver off the cliff and try and find it later. Id say 5 times you wont hit a driver off a par 4. just lay, GIR it, 2 putt, smirnoff ice and move on. haha. Looking forward to more rounds this season at The Rise. The story is fun about Fred Couples. So ask someone to tell you about the first 4 holes. 4 stars until the clubhouse is done. Then we will see.

Late season play good price!!

Luv this course. Awesome views, great, interesting layout. Lots of tee choices. Check yardages against your home course . As some holes from white are short ( 300 yards or so) so may opt for black tees. Good carts, great clubhouse food. I usually hunt for specials as mid season prices not always in my budget.

Great experience

The course was in excellent condition and very interesting to play with the large number of blind shots. The blind shots weren't really a problem as the "pro tips" available on the included gps were very helpful. We did have both carts in our group die on us which caused us to be delayed and the gps units themselves didn't always function all that well. There was a difference between the gps on each cart as to the distances to the green etc. overall it was a pleasure playing the course but the gps units could use upgrading.

Beautiful views

Excellent course, challenging fairways & greens. You need to keep your focus on the golf and not the scenery. Worth the trip up the hill

Always a fun challenge

I have played this course at least 8 times each season and I simply love everything about this course. The setting in magnificent, the course have bite and yet reward good golf shots. Couple of blind holes on the back 9 but apart from those few holes this is an absolute must when visiting Vernon

Unfinished business.

This course is a long way from being complete. No driving range no club house. Old carts and gps system. Two garbage cans on whole course. Zero service at check in. Did not get a score card until after 2nd hole and only because a grounds keeper went by and he got me one. The course is loaded with completely blind shots and even if you hit it straight the severe slope on fairways makes finding your ball a chore. They charge for a full service course and this is far from that.
