Discover Alberta Golf Courses in The Lakeland: The Golfers’ Guide

Posted on: May 6, 2019

Fresh green grass, undiscovered courses, the thrill of improving your stroke with each game — there are countless reasons to love golf. And for those golf-enthusiasts out there, the warm spring and summer months signal the return of your favourite hobby to the Lakeland.

Golf has a long history in the Lakeland. In fact, it was introduced to Alberta in the late 1800s, and saw a resurgence in 1918 with the end of World War I. Since then, it’s been a beloved past-time for thousands. In the Lakeland, there’s a golf course for everyone: from small, family-oriented mini-golf courses, to sophisticated country clubs, to courses with breathtaking views.

Looking for the best golf course in Alberta? Discover Alberta golf courses in the Lakeland with our Golfers’ Guide to the top brass golf courses you can experience this season:

Smoky Lake Golf & Country Club

Be sure to check out the Pro Shop when you visit — they’re actually the only Lakeland golf club that offers full club fitting and club building services. At the beginning or end of a long, fulfilling day in the sun you’ll definitely want to check out the Tin Club Restaurant onsite, which offers a fabulous gluten-free menu.

Lac La Biche Golf & Country Club

It’s absolutely worth it to take a trip out to the beautiful, unique Lac La Biche region to golf at the Lac La Biche Golf & Country Club. The name Lac La Biche comes from an indigenous Cree phrase for Lake of the Elk, and those who adventure to this area get to experience the overwhelming beauty of Lac La Biche itself, which stands out as being one of Alberta’s largest bodies of water.

The Lac La Biche Golf & Country Club is located right on the shore of the lake, making it an incredibly scenic place to enjoy a round of golf.
