Oliver produces some big surprises for golf fans. This small town boasts two championship courses and a season that goes on and on.
Summers are long and sunny with up to 15 hours of playing time on peak season days. Short winters with next to no snow keep golfers driving, chipping and putting through most of the year. And there are even more challenges close by with another 10 golf courses within 40km/25mi of Oliver.
Fairview Mountain Golf Course
Fairview Mountain Golf Course has earned a host of accolades. Repeatedly recognized by Canadian golf magazine, Score Magazine as one of the Top 100 Golf Courses in Canada, it has also been named "Golf Facility of the year" by the BCPGA (Professional Golfer's Association of British Columbia).
Golf Digest consistently rates this course a "Four Star Must Play Golf Facility". The 7025-yard Les Furber design makes maximum use of the natural slopes, rolling terrain and mini-canyons on the east-facing mountainside above Oliver.
