Where2Golf says: 

The Okanagan Golf Club is home to two championship layouts: the Quail course designed by Les Furber was joined four years later by the Bear, designed by Bill O'Leary of Nicklaus Design.

The Bear course is a generally well-regarded layout, which includes several attractive holes and features. This tree-lined and open parkland layout will test most facets of your game, and should provide a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges. Worth visiting if you are in the area.

The Welcombe Hotel : provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. From the layout's higher elevations you will enjoy wonderful views over the surrounding Warwickshire countryside. Read more...
