About Tower Ranch

Tower Ranch has been described as one of the most beautiful and exciting courses offered anywhere in North America. The views are spectacularly breath-taking and the golf holes are unique and  challenging. Positioned high atop the eastern bench, Tower Ranch looks down upon the Okanagan valley and lake, wends its way through the rugged hills and across daunting fissures. Thomas McBroom took advantage of every variation in the land to craft a remarkable and distinctive course that needs to be experienced to be believed.
