PENTICTON - The Osoyoos Indian Band and its partners will build 16 more homes at its NK'MIP Canyon Desert Golf Course.

Chief Clarence Louie said on Monday the 16 homes along with the 17 already built will attract even more tourists and golf-enthusiasts. This will pave the way for a community centre, parks and a trail system.

The 16 homes will be built sometime in 2014. The 17 golf villas are two to three-bedroom homes with 1,050 to 1,500 square feet of indoor living space with more than 500 square feet of outdoor property. New homeowners received a complimentary membership to the golf course.

“We are making Canyon Desert a destination for people who want to live in a spectacular setting right on the golf course and close to all the great attractions and services Oliver has to offer,” Louie said.
