    VERNON -- Myles Johnson is proud to call Vernon home. It’s where Johnson was born and raised, where he learned to golf and where he has spent more than 20 years in the golf industry. So it’s probably safe to say no one was happier than Johnson, the head professional of Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club, when Vernon-area golf courses recently formed a consortium to market themselves as a golf destination.

    “I love it,” Johnson says. “I think for too long we have been trying to do things on our own and we end up being lost in the Kelowna-Okanagan shuffle. I think by doing things together we are going to let people know what we have and give ourselves better exposure.”

    The Shuswap, long known and loved in Canada for Shuswap Lake houseboating, is perhaps lesser known for its golf courses. That is about to change though. More and more people are discovering this hidden jewel of a golf area.

  • Eaglepoint Golf Resort A Testament To Robert Heaslip's Vision
