Situated north of Lacombe, Nursery Golf & Country Club is conveniently located just off of Hwy 2 between Edmonton and Calgary. It lies just east of the Canadian Rockies. The course appeals to players of all skill levels, from beginners to pros, thanks to a diverse range of holes. You'll have to contend with tricky doglegs and tree-lined fairways as well as several different water hazards, including a stream that cuts across the entire golf course. The layout crosses over the stream several times, connected by scenic wooden bridges. The tranquil setting of the golf course is ideal for a round of golf. Nursery Golf & Country Club finishes with a tough par 5. There is trouble nearly everywhere you turn on this hole with tall poplars lining the fairways and a sloped green. If you're even slightly right of the fairway you'll be punished with a blind second shot.

Well worth the $$$

Other than a couple greens being repaired the course is great, well worth the money.

Golf Now

I no longer care for the new Golf Now / golf course protocols.
Golf courses use your services to promote their courses.
However, their booking times are all either walking rates or minimum of two.
Yesterday I had to pay an extra 20.00 at the course for a cart.
I might as well dump your services and just call direct to the course and do my own booking.

Nice course

We always enjoy a round at the Nursery. The course is awesome. The amenities continue to need attention. Looks like they are starting to make some improvement which is nice to see. Cleanliness of the pro shop bathroom continue to be an issue that I hope the owners have plans for. It stinks! We golf several courses in the area and I was surprised to be charged 40.00 just for the golf cart. Which I had to retrieve myself and clean of before I could use it. Usual price is 10.00 a person.

The Nursery by Lacombe

The course was lush with ample vegetation and the greens were moderate in speed. The pace of play was excellent and the day was most enjoyable.

Great time had

Supper friendly staff a and fun course. T times could be more closely managed as others t’d off right after our set time and with Covid restricting play through we felt pressured to hurry our game with a single golfer on our heels the whole round.

Hello, Allan. Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We with the recent rain we are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recover the fairways and greens from the water on the course. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Nursery Golf and Country Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Good early spring Shape

Greens were in great condition, fairways need another couple weeks.. Back 9 was not open yet. Staff was friendly. If you a woman that needs a bathroom regularly, golf is not the game for you now. 1 bathroom only at clubhouse available.

Hidden Gem

Just played the course and I was pleasantly surprised. Drove from Calgary to meet a buddy from Edmonton for a round. This is a little country course with a small restaurant/pro shop, nothing fancy but the staff and the course we're exceptional. Awesome layout for any golfer. Greens were big and played very true. Can't wait to play again!
