Course Introduction and History
The Mission Creek Golf Course is right in the heart of Kelowna and can be found on the border of the Mission Creek Greenway. Mission Creek is a semi-private course where the dress code is simply shirt and shoes required—a dress code that one should hope for in much of daily life! The course is peaceful and tranquil; it could be compared to a nature walk through a state park because of the number of beautiful trees and natural growth. There are, of course, a number of ponds and streams to look out for, but these waterways are home to birds and wildlife, which are a gorgeous addition to the course. The course is known for its walkability, and you should be able to complete an 18-hole round in fewer than three hours. If you are looking for a shorter course, or are intimidated by long courses, Mission Creek is the place to practice. With few holes that stretch more than 300 yards and many within the 100+ range, the course will allow you to move through with confidence.
Amenities and Services
The Mission Creek Pro Shop is your one-stop shop for clubs, pull carts, power carts and a wide range of other golf goodies. Mission Creek has a putting green that will help you sharpen up your shot in a real setting. To really give yourself the edge, talk to a qualified golf instructor on site. There is also a full-service clubhouse on site that is great for hosting tournaments, and Duffer's restaurant is a favourite with locals who want to eat great food and enjoy top-notch entertainment. If you're looking for a spot to enjoy a banquet dinner or wedding reception, try the upstairs lounge.
What Makes Mission Creek Golf Club Special
Mission Creek is a small, executive course known for putting on company tournaments that locals and visitors alike enjoy. There are tournament packages available for companies or organizations interested in putting on small (10-30 guests) or larger (30+ guests) tournaments at the course. While Mission Creek is not famous for holding masters' tournaments or any of the big, grand events seen at other courses, this close-knit community is best known for making its members and visitors feel welcome. If you've ever felt like a golf course was too insular and highbrow for your tastes, try Mission Creek. It's a beautiful course maintained by excellent staff, but you won't be made to feel like you’re on the outside of an exclusive club.
While playing the Mission Creek Golf Club course will usually cost you $26 for nine holes and $37 for 18 holes, there are a few ways to get onto the course cheaply—on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Monday's special is 4 for the price of 3 afternoons, Cheap Tuesday drops prices (nine holes will set you back $23 and 18 holes $31), and Wednesday is Men's Night from 3-6 PM when $26 includes green fees and prizes.
Mission Creek is a stunning, picturesque golf course with plenty to see and do, both on and off the course. This beautiful, well-maintained course has much to offer the casual golfer and top player alike; no matter your level of commitment or skill, Mission Creek has something for you. Golfers will love the course's challenging 18 holes, and non-golfers will love the gorgeous scenery and tasty food on offer.
