When players peer down the first fairway at Pine Hills Golf Club, they may feel a bit like a placekicker in football, aligning themselves for a shot between uprights formed by tall Ponderosa pine trees. And though successful strokes may not result in fans rushing the course to lift golfers up onto their shoulders, the difficulty involved can give players a deep sense of accomplishment. Challenges such as this one, which arise from a confluence of elevation and natural surroundings, are frequent on the nine-hole par 3 course, draped as it is over the hillsides along Okanagan Lake’s southern rim. As golfers look up from their tight lies, they can feast their eyes on the expanse of Okanagan Lake to the east and the town of Penticton, due south.
