Around the World in 84 Ways

Edmonton showcases its range of golf courses

The one-stop-shop for booking tee times for courses throughout the region is Playgolfalberta.com.
One of Canada’s oldest municipal golf courses is also one of its prettiest. The Victoria Golf Course is tucked away in Edmonton’s lush river valley, and it guarantees stunning views as golfers traipse along its wide and forgiving fairways.

The Victoria is one of three city-operated 18-hole golf courses amidst a veritable green sea of courses dotted throughout the region. Riverside and Rundle round out the trio, all of which can be booked with a single call or online reservation.

Edmonton doesn’t have a hold on all of the golfing opportunities in the area; more then 80 additional courses offer a wide range of styles and types of greens and fairways in the city that first established itself as a golfer’s paradise in 1896 and hasn’t let up since.

Long summer days with light lasting up to 17 hours helps fuel the obsession over the links shared by locals and visitors alike.

A few of the courses in the area include Eagle Rock, Cougar Creek, Coal Creek, The Quarry and Trestle Creek – a massive endeavor that will eventually serve as the centerpiece of a 440-acre recreation area and RV park amongst its 27 holes.
