Welcome to The Bear Course at The Okanagan Golf Club

The Bear Course at the Okanagan Golf Club - a 36 hole golf resort in Kelowna - was designed to ignite your passion for the game of golf. Planned by Nicklaus Designs and built in 1998, The Bear is an 18-hole, 6,885 yard, par 72 masterpiece unlike any other golf course in British Columbia. With dramatic sculpted fairways surrounded by the forests and sage brush hills of B.C.'s sun-drenched southern interior, The Bear is the crown jewel course of the Okanagan Valley.

Golfing in Kelowna at The Bear
Crafted by Nicklaus Designs, one of the pre-eminent golf architecture firms in the world, The Okanagan's Bear Course can prove as ferocious as a grizzly or as gentle as a teddy, depending on which set of tees you choose. On its hind legs the layout stretches to 6,885 yards. Well-placed bunkers, grassy swales and collection areas, sculpted moundings, and tiered greens lend the course some challenge. The routing climbs through forested hills on a plateau overlooking the Okanagan Valley.

The Bear's signature hole comes at number three, 453 yards of challenge requiring a combination of accuracy and distance to avoid two bunkers en route to the green. While the course boasts an extensive collection of sweet holes, numbers thirteen through fifteen - playing over the blue waters of Lake McIvor - are the real honeys here. More than 150,000 cubic metres of earth were moved to create the lake and the dramatic topography around it, yet the course maintains a perfect harmony with the natural terrain.
