Course Introduction and History
When you take the time to visit the Harvest Golf Club, you’ll understand with one glance where it got its name. The course is set on 254 acres of East Kelowna land, and fifty-four of these acres are dedicated to a functioning orchard that produces five different types of apples, including the well-known varieties of Spartan, McIntosh, and Granny Smith. Here you’ll also find five acres of Chardonnay and Pinot noir wine grapes that go into the local, award-winning Calona Wines. Harvest Golf Club is a course designed by the renowned Canadian golf course architect, Graham Cooke. It offers 7109 yards of tailored and manicured greens and trees. The expansive views of the Okanagan Valley from this Kelowna golf course make the Harvest experience that much more memorable.
