Fort Macleod Golf Club

golf club sign board


Golf was first played in Fort Macleod in 1890; this was the first course to be built between Winnipeg and the West Coast. The area 250 yards from the first tee was used until about 1924 by the N.W.M.P. as a pistol and rifle range.

This 9-hole course is set in the river valley, surrounded by trees and coulees.  Throughout the course, you can see old wagon trails, buffalo wallows and sand traps made by sheep.  Cattle and buffalo bones are there as a result of a blizzard in 1898.

The Prince of Wales played golf on this course in 1924.  Approximately half of this course has been deemed a historically designated area.
