Opened in 1994 River's Edge Golf Club is one of the top choices in the Okotoks area. It was designed by former Canadian Tour Professional Ed Engelhardt and his son. The course started as just a nine hole course with the South Nine opening in 1994 and the North Nine opening ten years later.

River's Edge Golf Club was selected as the host club for the 2010 Alberta Ladies Amateur Championship and was renovated in many ways for the event. Today, it's a very challenging course measuring about 7,000 yards from the championship tees and about 5,200 yards from the front tee box.

The course includes Death Valley, which is holes 13, 14 and 15. They run along the river and have very narrow fairways with 50-foot Poplar trees surrounding them. You will also get to enjoy the Waterworld hole (number 9) features a signature island green surrounded completely by water.

Facilities

Along with the challenging course, you will be able to enjoy other facilities including:

  • The Pro Shop
