From the rolling, scenic terrain of the Qu'Appelle Valley, to the lavish country club setting at Regina, Saskatchewan has golf that is enjoyably varied in course design and challenge.
Saskatchewan has a long history of golf, with many courses established in the early 1900s.
If there is such a thing as a typical Saskatchewan golf experience, it would be characterized by open fairways, rolling terrain and roughs consisting of tufted prairie grass.
An interesting feature of Saskatchewan golf is that many sand-green courses remain. These courses were constructed during the Great Depression, when cultivating and irrigating pampered grass greens was not realistic. Over the years, most sand-green courses have been converted to grass greens. Out of tradition, some courses have opted to keep these sand-greens—and many players prefer them. Many locals refer to this style of golf as “pasture golf.”
The historical value of many courses in Saskatchewan includes special details—such as The Lobstick at Waskesiu Golf Course, near Prince Albert. The Lobstick is an evergreen tree that has been limbed halfway up the trunk. Trees like this were used by the northern Cree nations as markers or monuments.
Wonderfully interesting experiences and fun challenges await in Saskatchewan—and be prepared to enjoy some remarkable value, as well.
