Picture Butte Golf Club
Picture-perfect Picture Butte
At the top of a coulee in an area rich in agriculture and history, you’ll find one of southern Alberta’s most popular golf destinations: the Picture Butte Golf Club.
Located two kilometers from the town of Picture Butte, just 15 minutes north of Lethbridge, it’s an easy drive from a number of southern Alberta locales. With all that the Picture Butte Golf Club has to offer, it is well worth a visit this season.
Established in 1963 and expanded to 27 holes in 2004, the course is home to a wide variety of holes and is ideal for players of all levels, from beginners to advanced. The most recent change to the course is the restructuring of its signature hole, Homestead #7. This hole, also known as the Ash Hole, is always a favorite with players at the club, according to manager Dean Sklarenko.
This well-established course has been host to a number of championship events over the years. Most recently, the course played host to the 2006 Senior Match Play Championships.
In addition to a great game of golf, Picture Butte Golf Club offers lessons to students of all ages and levels of expertise. Private, semi-private and playing lessons, as well as classes for juniors and ladies only are available. All lessons are taught by CPGA instructors with an aim to improving one’s enjoyment of the game while strengthening skills.
Picture Butte also boasts a top-notch golf shop. An expansive line of equipment, accessories and apparel is available. Knowledgeable, professional staff are on hand to assist you. If you don’t see what you want, ask—they’ll be more than happy to find it for you.
Golfers can continue to enjoy the open skies and breathtaking scenery after the game with a drink or two on the clubhouse deck, overlooking the course. Those that wish to cheer on their favorite sports teams can make their way to the third floor bar, where cold drinks and big screen TVs await them. Players looking for a delicious meal pre- or post-game will find one in the main banquet area, which offers a quality dining experience with full menus available for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
In addition to all the great features of the course and its amenities, the Country Side Campground is located right on site. The campground has both serviced and unserviced sites for a RVs and tenters alike. What could be better after a satisfying day of golf than to ramble no further than your RV and call it a day?
