In the heart of Canadian Wine Country, Les Furber’s 1990 design is arguably his best, featuring a well-routed golf course over some dramatic Okanagan land, with depression areas, rock outcroppings, and some pretty hilly terrain in spots.
Overall, Fairview Mountain is a solid golf course. Is it Canadian top 100? No, but it’s not that far off. With help on grassing lines, a chainsaw in some spots and some shrub management in front of some of the tees, Fairview Mountain could be a legitimate contender. Right now, it’s probably in the 130 range, but good grassing lines alone move it to the top 110.
Outside of that, however, there is quite a good mixture of holes, and it’s Les Furber at his least goofy. The holes are well routed to utilize the natural topography, and not two holes feel the same. if you’re ever in the South Okanagan area, Fairview Mountain is the course of choice.
