Predator Ridge Resort (Ridge course): Two superb and contrasting golf courses await at the impressive Predator Ridge resort. The original links-style Predator layout, was joined in 2010 by an equally impressive and more woodland-style companion. The Doug Carrick designed Ridge course, like its sibling, is immensely natural, scenic and challenging.
Where the Predator thrives in an open, links-style setting, the Ridge weaves through a tighter environment of woodland and rocky outcrops. You'll find greater elevation changes here, with several holes making dramatic use of the naturally undulating terrain.
One of many scenic highlights on this out-and-back layout comes at the turn, where the short par-4 10th plays steeply downhill to a green protected by a "maple-leaf" bunker on one side and a "Bear's paw" on the other. The Ridge's scenic highlights are not however just confined to stylish bunkering. Although the three opening and closing holes are unobtrusively flanked by residences, the middle two-thirds of the course is characterised by a fabulous interplay of natural woodland, protruding rock formations and spectacular views onto the wide expanse of Lake Okanagan.
In this ruggedly beautiful "high-country" environment, tranquillity and a variety of wildlife are never in short supply. Which of Predator Ridge's two wonderful layouts you prefer will inevitably be a matter of personal preference. Our strong advise is when you are here, play them both, and then play them both again.

Predator Ridge (Predator and Ridge courses)
PGA Championship: the first men’s major of the year will be contested at TPC Harding Park, without spectators being present (Aug 6-9).
European Senior (Staysure) Tour: the Europe-based over-50s tour for men has taken the reluctant step of cancelling the entire 2020 season, based on the additional coronavirus risk associated with the age demographic of the players.
Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
