7 Tips to Plan a Perfect Day of Golf & Wine in Kamloops
What You Need-to-Know to Pair (or Plan) a Perfect ( or Full ) Day of Golf and Wine (in Kamloops)
A round of golf and a 3-winery tasting tour is full day but totally doable in Kamloops. With a little planning and some itinerary intel, you can easily get in 18 holes in the morning and still have time to enjoy a three-winery tasting tour in the afternoon. Here’s what you need to know to plan the perfect day:
Plan for approximately 45 minutes at each winery. Â½ hour for wine tasting and 15 mins to Â½ hour for shopping and just enjoying the properties. Be sure to reserve a tasting time in advance.
If you want to do a winery lunch, plan that around Monte Creek Winery which would then be your first winery stop. Be sure to book a reservation for the Terrace Restaurant in advance.
- Do not plan on going back to the hotel after golf and before hitting the wineries. You will end up back tracking and wasting too much time.
Plan on golfing at a course that is
close to your first winery stop to minimize drive time.
Monte Creek and Harper’s Trail are
located on the South Thompson and pair well with Rivershore, Big Horn
and Eagle Point Golf Courses.
- Privato Vineyard and Winery is in the North Thompson Valley and will pair particularly well with the Dunes, and Kamloops Golf & Country Club.
Where you choose to golf, will dictate
which winery you will start at.
