Clad in whimsical wraps and tops that shimmer, Bahiti Belly Dance's instructors lead groups through belly-dance routines that blend Egyptian, Polynesian, and Bollywood moves. Groups learn to undulate, shimmy, and pop, burning calories and toning their abdominal muscles all the while.
From a tee box raised 75 feet above the fairway, the Okanagan Valley spreads out before golfers as they tee up their first shot at the Summerland Golf and Country Club. This sort of panoramic vista is commonplace on the 18-hole course—named the best course in the South Okanagen by Penticton Western in 2013—from the opening drive to postround drinks on the clubhouse’s 1,500-square-foot balcony overlooking the course below. Before toasting good fortune, players must first navigate through the groves of tall Ponderosa pines, calibrate for wild swings in elevation, and best the mighty par 5 18th hole. Measuring 522 yards from the back tees, this final hole borders the edge of the Trout Creek Canyon, one of five holes on the course to do so without falling in.
