The Rise Golf Course in Vernon, B.C. has multi-million-dollar project plans for a 30,000 square foot, multi-amenity building that includes a restaurant and lounge, corporate event space and wedding venue. The venue’s top floor will feature 35-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and a 120-seat casual dining area including a multi-level patio overlooking Okanagan Lake, the City of Vernon and the golf course.
“Vernon, B.C. is the right place and now is the right time to elevate local experiences. We’re breaking ground now and we’re so excited to build this for the Vernon community and our visitors,” says Ian Renton, general manager of The Rise Golf Course. “Vernon is a growing city that’s gaining national visibility and accolades. Add to that the realities of the last two years where we’ve seen people and families cooped up and really appreciating what Vernon has to offer, and we’ve got a new opportunity to serve our community.”
Renton references a recent survey conducted by Maclean’s magazine in which Vernon ranked in the top 30 out of 415 Canadian communities to live in—and the 5th ranking highest city in B.C. Renton notes that there’s a trend to seek entertainment locally.
“Everyone’s more than ready to celebrate and make memories again. Mix that with the growth and recognition Vernon is receiving on the national stage—well, it’s the perfect time to provide extraordinary places and experiences—locally. We’re carefully delivering a world-class restaurant that—no matter the time of day or season—takes your breath away,” he said.
The Rise restaurant and event venue is slated to complete in 2023.
