Playing Tips for the Okanagan Golf course - Quail
Hole 2 - The straightaway par 5 is only reachable by the longer hitters. The green is two-tiered so be certain to get the ball on the right level with your approach.The green here tend to be very firm, to put the breaks on a long iron is near impossible. Best to leave a wedge in and approach high and soft.
Hole 6 - You will enjoy plenty of choice off the tee of this spectacular par 5 (From long iron, 3 wood or driver depending on the tee box and your distance). The fairway on the left gives a long ball hitter the opportunity to go for the green on the second shot, this is a long shot though! The safe play however is to aim down the right side off the tee and then a lay up second shot. Leaving a nice lob or approach wedge in, careful, there are bunkers behind this green.
Hole 14 at The Quail Course at Okanagan Golf Club - This unique par 4 offers you a choice of direction off the tee. The easiest way to play the hole is a mid to long iron over the waste bunker followed by a short iron second shot. A very short hole but proves testy each time you play.
