Even I had heard of Predator Ridge. They have hosted professional tournaments over the years and attracted some pretty impressive names in the world of golf. Predator Ridge is a full meal deal with accommodations, dining and 2 full golf courses not to mention the community that is springing up around them. It's a good 45 minutes north of Kelowna.
Predator Ridge Golf and Country Club
This is a beautiful place that frequently obliged us to stop our carts and photograph the vistas around us. Once again, although the weather was threatening at times, we endured no rain.
I lost more balls here than over the last couple of days. A lot of them ended up in the water. Nevertheless, at times I actually felt like a golfer!
Since we were going straight from the course to the dining room, I was concerned about the possibility of being rained on and so brought extra clothes, however, as mentioned, it did not become an issue.
At our table, we shared a couple of appetizers. The first was Fried Cheese and Sausage. It sounds a little pubish but when you factor in that the sausage is of duck and pork and that the aioli is of tomato and tarragon, you have something a little impressive. Very nice! Lots of flavours here!
And then there were Garlic Dry Ribs with lemon pepper. Also pretty tasty!
For my main, I enjoyed the Pan Seared Arctic Char. This came with decent gnocchi and a mix of sauteed mushrooms and some nice vegetables. Perfectly cooked fish is always a pleasure.
I noticed around the table that many of us preferred the beefier options like the 1 Lb Rib Eye or the Slow Braised Beef Obie with peppercorn sauce (pictured). The menu offers a lot of options from burgers to bowls to pasta so no one was left without a choice that suited them.
Dessert had a few decent options also. I had the Banana Peanut Butter Gelato Bars because, why wouldn't I? The banana was present in the form of gel. I'm not sure how they make that but it was good!
Black Currant Cheesecake, I believe.
All this in a lovely dining room overlooking a beautiful golf course. You could ask for more but you might seem a little ungrateful. And so our adventure was coming to an end. After breakfast on Sunday morning, we packed up our gear and headed for the airport.
Thanks, Kelowna (and bosses who paid the tab)!
