Edmonton Garrison Memorial Golf & Curling Club is centrally located within 15 minutes of the Edmonton Area, St. Albert, Morinville, and Cardiff. It first opened as a nine-hole course in the 1950s. Since the second nine wasn't added until 1996, there is a distinct difference between the front and back nine that makes it feel like you're getting two golf courses in one. The front, the original nine, is a more traditional parkland layout while the back is a more open links nine. You'll face a different set of challenges on each. The smaller greens on the front are indicative of the time when it was built and the size will also test your shot placement skills. In contrast, Edmonton Garrison Memorial's back nine has large and undulating greens as well as more strategically placed mounding.

I haven't played Garrison in awhile, but was disappointed in the condition of the rough. Not that is was long but full of clover. The pace was slow specifically because of this. We lost lots of balls barely being off the fairway.

I don't want to be to critical of course conditions because of all the rain we have had, however I do want to point out that cart paths have needed much attention for a long time. They were being worked on during our round which was good to see. Fairways were fairly good, rough was and has been to long in the past. It is a good course and has seen improvements each year.

Soggy Situation

Heavy rain the previous day made the course very mucky. Perhaps a better drainage or water managent system is needed.

The young man working the pro shop wanted to charge me $68 instead of the $61 Golf Now quoted. When I showed him the email confirmation he seemed out to lunch and had to chat with a manager. He adjusted the price but still messed it up.

Need repair car paths.

Overall the course is in good condition except some fairways are water overrun. Greens are in good condition. Car paths are bumpy and rough condition. But overall enjoy golfing there.

wet round

played the course for the first time. Lots of standing water on most of the course and as a result, could not use power carts so did not get the benefit of the golfnow pricing as we paid what we would have had we booked directly with the course. I'm expecting some compensation back from GolfNow as we did not get what we paid for as power carts were not available due to the wet course conditions.

Wet and long

We like this course but was too wet and grass too long. Weather related but are going to have to cut the grass in between rains.

Surprise rules when you show up

After 9 holes we were told we had to walk the back 9. Apparently the course has a policy of no carts after a certain time however, they do not specify this on the booking page or anywhere on their website. They did not tell us when we checked in either. We paid for a cart for 18 holes and were only allowed to use it for 9. The employee who notified us said he was “just a grunt” and got upset when I asked questions about why the course is not open and transparent about their policy.
