Have you ever dreamed of playing golf among the ancient landscapes of Europe, so steeped with history that you can almost taste it? Well I can! It’s September and the roads and hillsides of the Chianti region of Tuscany are lined with row upon row of grapes almost ready to harvest. Last night, we’re in Greve celebrating the season and sampling wine and olive oil. Today I played my first round in Italy at the oldest Golf Club in the country. How cool is that?
Wine, weather & a world apart – Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada by Dave Finn
It has been thirty years since I last visited Kelowna British Columbia. My recollection was of a small quaint town of some 60,000 residents, nestled along the shores of the Okanagan Lake, completely surrounded by lush apple, peach and cherries orchards offset by the majestic snow-capped peaks of the Rockies in the distance. What I do not remember from those days was any mention of golf or a large number of wineries that could be toured. Times have certainly changed since the early 80’s.
