Fort Macleod proud of historic golf course

Golfers can experience the history of their sport by teeing off at the Fort Macleod Golf Club, the oldest course west of Manitoba. The game in 1890 was played on the grassy flats near the old fort. By 1895 the Royal Macleod Golf Club had firmly established itself as a part of the local sports scene.
Today the Fort Macleod Golf Club offers nine holes on grass greens, with a full-service clubhouse. Situated along the Oldman River, the golf course is an oasis on the prairie with lush green fairways surrounded by large trees.
Fort Macleod Golf Club considers itself a family course where people can have a relaxing time, but the course is still challenging for the competitive golfer. Par for the course is 35, with holes ranging in distance from the
par three 160-yard sixth hole to the par five 505-yard seventh hole. The fairways are lined with 60-foot trees.
A well-equipped pro shop has everything a golfer needs, including equipment and power cart rentals. Following your game, you can dine in the licensed
clubhouse. To book a tee time call 403-553-4664.
