Waterton Lakes Golf Course


Waterton Lakes GC is a place where wildlife—deer, elk, moose, and the occasional cougar and bear roam. More than 1,400 forms of flora, many species not found anywhere else in Alberta, also call this place “where the mountains meet the prairies” home. The course dates back to 1922 when the original 9 holes were opened. To accommodate demand, a second nine was added, and on Canada Day, 1935, Waterton Lakes expanded to 18 holes. Following input from Canada’s most famous Golf Course Architect, Stanley Thompson, further course improvements were made through the 1950s.
