The aptly named Harvest Golf Club (tel: 800-257-8577; is a golfer’s garden of Eden. Depending on the season, you might be tempted to pluck peaches, apricots, pears, cherries or apples from the trees lining the luscious fairways during your round.

Canadian architect Graham Cooke routed the 7109-yard Harvest through a series of working orchards and vineyards on a bluff overlooking Lake Okanagan.

Number four is a deceptively tricky par-three requiring exact aim and enough carry in order to avoid the bunker and pond left of the green.

The clubhouse, offering Pacific Northwest cuisine and an extensive wine list, looks over a waterfall and infinity pond landscaped with a Japanese garden and red pagoda-style bridge. Kelowna Actors Studio (tel: 250-862-2867; serves up dinner and a show with Broadway hits such as My Fair Lady (July 18 to August 4), Kiss me Kate (September 20 to 23) and Barefoot in the Park (October 10 to 27).
