Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game where they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Prepare clubs for sporting conquests with today's Groupon: for $11, you get two club-detailing packages at Kelowna Springs Golf Club on Penno Road (a $22.40 value).
Golfers prepare their clubs for 18-hole dominance with a full cleaning in Kelowna Springs Golf Club's locally invented, self-service Club Detailer machine. Lounging in the staging area next to the clubhouse, the Club Detailer employs environmentally amicable ultrasonic frequencies to restore club heads and grips to their newborn state. Players place two full sets of orb launchers into the machine's cleansing compartments, and over the course of 5–10 minutes, the Club Detailer loosens debris and primes rigid irons for fairway waltzes using heated water, biodegradable soap, and high-frequency vibrations. The machine's fastidious cleaning also grooms grips and restores their original tackiness by sloughing away skin oils, sunscreen, and outdated band-aids. Clients then preen putters and fluff matted drivers using the machine's expedient blow-dry stage. Like a sumo-wrestler covered in Jello, clubs are ready for competition immediately after cleaning.
Kelowna Springs Golf Club
Designed by Canadian course architect Les Furber, Kelowna Springs Golf Club’s 18-hole course invites clubbers to hunt pins across 6,176 yards of connecting fairways and greens. Seven ponds come into play throughout the round, adding a scenic touch as they wait to take the lives of golf balls that depend on inhaling oxygen through their dimples. The 501-yard, par 5 18th hole provides a dramatic conclusion to the round, as golfers play to a green framed by the clubhouse, protected by three cavernous bunkers, and flanked by a pond on its left side. After rounds, duffers can unwind at Legends Classic Grill, where a menu of savoury clubhouse fare sates ravenous hungers built up after a day of driving balls into the cosmos and suppressing unhappy swing thoughts.
