Nk'Mip Canyon Desert Golf Course (previously known as Cherry Grove Golf & Country Club) is so-named for its diverse landscape that begins on natural desert and smoothly transitions into lush canyons and valleys. In the centuries prior to the course's construction, the Okanagan people referred to the scenic landscape as Nk'Mip, which roughly translates to "flat bottom land at the mouth of the creek or river." Preserving the stunning natural features, including the abundant native flora and fauna, was one of the top priorities when the Osoyoos Indian Band developed the course into a championship layout in 2001. Despite tumbling across a variety of elevation changes, the golf course is easy to walk and provides stunning views of the South Okanagan Valley along the way. The course offers a fair challenge with water hazards and numerous strategically placed bunkers coming into play.

Interesting Course

Greens had been punched - so putting was a bit of an issue. Front nine is a very nice track - back nine is a bit of a disappointment compared to the front. Staff were helpful and very accommodating

Best greens in the South Okanogan!

My review title says it all! Sometimes the greens crew don't get enough kudos. Great job!

Great course but too many groups and no ranger keeping pace of play

We had a great time but pace of play was quite slow waiting on every shot as they were either.too many groups of the course or the ranger did not work Fridays so no one was told to pick up the pace.

Lovely course though and I would come back again. Staff were great in the proshop.

Love the challenge!

Love the first 12 holes. Back 6 holes feel like you changed courses. Different style holes, from desert style to traditional city course style.
