Fore! Get into your swing at one of the 84 golf courses in the city and surrounding area. Many have been groomed into 18-hole championship-grade courses, open to pros and duffers alike. If you’re in the heart of the city, you’re only minutes from golfing along the picturesque North Saskatchewan River valley in the Jägare Ridge Golf Club. Or tee it up along the tree-lined fairways on Edmonton’s fringe. Players of all ages and skill levels will also find fun challenging some of the city’s newest golf courses along the city’s periphery such as Northern Bear (the third Jack Nicklaus signature golf course in Canada) and Red Tail Landing Golf Club (an 18-hole signature golf course at Edmonton International Airport). Old pros at accommodating large groups, Edmonton’s golf courses host prestigious events such as the Wayne Gretzky & Friends Invitational Golf Tournament, the CN Canadian Women’s Open and the TELUS Open, which is part of the Canadian Tour. From a foursome to a full 144-player tournament, Edmonton’s golfing community welcomes your sporting spirit. For that post-game get-together, keep in mind that most clubhouses here can readily host large groups. Here’s wishing you a hole in one!
