Kindness paid. Kindness returned.

So we take these kind words with a grain of salt, and we strive to make sure every experience here is a good experience for everyone.
I have enjoyed membership at The Harvest for the past sixteen years. There are many factors that draw me back, year after year. There are the incredible views, the challenging, yet fair course, the great practice facility, the beautiful club house, and excellent food and service. But, most of all, it is the friendly atmosphere and welcoming staff that make The Harvest like a home away from home.

Golfing at Harvest has been an extremely rewarding experience. The service is second to none, from the bag people, to the Pro shop staff, the restaurant staff, and the greens keeping staff. They all treat us with respect and friendship. The course conditions are always first class and the members and staff is sociable and friendly. We have made lasting friendships here, through our participation in the Senior Men’s and Women’s golf groups and through other club activities. This, in our opinion, is the best golf course in the Okanagan, bar none.

Both as a member of the club and someone who has organized events at the Harvest, I have always enjoyed the picturesque course, clubhouse, the great food service and especially the staff. One never has to be concerned as to how your guests are going to be welcomed and treated; you know a good impression will be made from the time they arrive to the time they leave.

While not a club member, I have golfed extensively at The Harvest since it opened. The course and practice facilities are superior. The level of service is exceptional. The Harvest may be the best course to host a tournament in the Central Okanagan.

JANET MCKENZIE, CUPCASIONS
I have had the distinct pleasure to be a member of the Harvest Golf Club since its opening in 1994. The Harvest course is beautifully maintained and playable, yet challenging. Whether one chooses to walk or cart in the orchard setting, you are rewarded with panoramic mountain, lake and city views. The club also provides one of the best practice and teaching facilities in Kelowna, as well as a friendly, yet professional staff who graciously attend to members and guests. If one chooses to enjoy a post round snack and drink in the grill, an intimate dinner for two, a special brunch with family, a wedding or a large corporate event, the staff at the Harvest are sure to look after every detail, and have done so over the years.

The Rockets Alumni Tournament has been hosted at the Harvest Golf Club for the past 12 summers for a reason….the impeccable, friendly service we have always received from the management and staff. Anyone who has organized a golf tournament knows the amount of time, effort and hard work it takes to pull it off successfully. The Harvest’s long standing commitment and reputation for excellence in all aspects of customer service from start to finish – course to clubhouse is what makes our tournament seamless and a continued success. .

“Meandering through a majestic hillside orchard, the resort style Harvest Golf Club offers captivating views of Lake Okanagan and golf that is second to none! The Harvest boasts 18 holes of championship golf, complemented with a specialty golf shop, practice facility, full service clubhouse and staff that provide the utmost in customer service.”
“One of the destination golf clubs that I have been to. Some people like it and some people don't. This is the only course that I know that has an actual apple orchard in the course layout. The fairways and greens are nicely manicured.”
“If you want to get spoiled this is a nice place to do it. They have bag boys that come out to carry and clean your clubs after your round. It’s usually only the resort destination golf courses will do that for you.”
“I’m embarrassed to admit that I took a 13 on one hole here!”
“Great place for a fantastic breakfast. We sat on the patio enjoyed the waterfall. My girlfriend had a Caramel banana French toast. I had blueberry pancakes. Great place to enjoy your Holiday.”
“A must play in Kelonwa … stunning views and beautifully landscaped. The Monday special 18 holes and lunch is fabulous. The meals were delicious. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.”
“Always a delight playing a wide open course. Staff always very pleasant and helpful .This week rough overgrown from a ProAm tournament making it challenging. I always book this course when I visit the Okanagan.”
“If you’re traveling to the Okanagan area and will be squeezing in a round or two, make sure The Harvest is on your list. The location and views of the course are spectacular! Never have I heard (or seen) of a course that was built on the site of an old orchard. In fact, a working orchard is part of the The Harvest and surrounds the entire course. We visited in May and were able to pick cherries right off the tree and eat them. The entire cooler on our cart was filled with them! We couldn't decided what to do: play golf, pick cherries or take in the magnificent views of the lake. The course was in great shape — tee to green was lush. The course is fairly wide open due to the orchard setting, but is by no means easy, as the rough is long and thick and the greens had some subtle breaks that made you second guessing that 3-footer. Practice facility was large with a grass driving range and a couple chipping greens. The service was remarkable. We were picked up at our car by the kindest young gentleman who proceeded to welcome us and directed us to where we needed to go. He was still on his shift when we finished our round and recommended a great restaurant. We decided to stay at the club for lunch— glad we did because The Harvest had the best clubhouse food I've ever had. You can't really call it clubhouse food as the menu is far from your typical golf course menu. Hubby raved about the turkey burger while I had the soup and salad. If you're golfing in Kelowna, play the Harvest — the most well-rounded golfing experience I’ve had!
