The Sturgeon Valley Golf and Country Club was established in 1960 and is located north of Edmonton and east of St. Albert in the Sturgeon County (Alberta). The current course borders the Sturgeon river on the northwest and Sturgeon Road on the southeast.
The 18-hole golf course recently went through an extensive rebuild, in which some holes were completely dug up and built anew. Now, the course is a stunning place to see, let alone play golf on.
The scenic fairways now lead to hardy perennial bentgrass greens making for a lusher, more consistent playing surface and the greens now have much more character. Golf cart paths are paved for ease of transportation (although golfers can easily walk the course and enjoy the natural views). Beautiful water features and sneaky sand traps are speckled across the course and attract an array of wildlife. Trees were cleared to let in the perfect amount of morning sunshine and brightly coloured flowers decorate the outdoor areas.
The course is one that lends itself to players of all abilities, whether an experienced golfer or new to the game, anyone can enjoy the outstanding course. And they do. Memberships are still available – including corporate, junior and associate – and of course the public is always welcome.
