Wolf Creek Golf Resort (The Old course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1984

The Wolf Creek Golf Resort offers two 18-hole championship courses, and can also accommodate visitors onsite. With both layouts designed by Rod Whitman, the wonderful Old course presents a challenging mix of open, linksy holes and others that are more tree-lined. It is kept company by the longer, but often more forgiving Links course.

The Old course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Alberta. This predominantly links-style course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.

Stay&Play at Wolf Creek: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
