Situated less than a half hour from Lethbridge, Magrath Golf Club is known among locals as the South's hidden gem. The course sprawls across gently rolling hills dotted with mature trees. The greens are quick and the fairways are generous on this player-friendly layout. There is a stream that snakes through the golf course in addition to a number of lakes. You'll encounter water on nearly every hole and you'll also have to contend with a few strategically placed bunkers. The golf course begins with a par-4 dogleg right with a fairway bunker on the left and trees all along the right side. Magrath Golf Club's final hole is another par 4, though this one is a bit tougher. There is trouble from tee to green, starting with a tee shot over water to a sloped fairway. Two bunkers guard the front of the green, making approaches extremely difficult.

We thought we would get out one last time before the snow flies. As we drove up we were so surprised at the shape of the course. The fairways were so green and lush with only a few leaves here and there. We had a great time. No one in front of us and no one behind us!!

We have come to love this course.

fine course and worth every cent via golf now. however, as per most courses today, the usual 60 to 75 dollars with cart is too much for a round. conditions and layout are in the upper end of the public course spectrum. greens very good, sand is often packed and can be rocky, which is too often the need in southern alberta,

Great course nestled away. Some people don't even know about it. You can tell it was built in the 1920's as it's a little shorter of a course and has huge trees all around it. If you aren't very straight off the tee you could have a bad time here. Greens are always awesome. Roll great and good speed. Beverage cart doesn't come around enough tho
