About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 71
Length 7155 yards
Slope 125
Rating 73.6

The two 18-hole courses at Wolf Creek Golf Course tumble through the hills of central Alberta. As the name indicates, the Links Course is an inland links course that features all of the classic elements of a traditional Scottish course including pot bunkers and immaculate fairways lined with long native grasses. Although it definitely connotes the Scottish highlands, there are some points where the golf course seems more desert in nature, adding an interesting twist to the round. The third hole is touted to be the toughest par-4 for on either course due to the tricky water hazard running along the left side of the narrow fairway.

Wolf Creek golf Resort, Links Course

Two courses make up the Wolf Creek Golf Resort, the Old Course & the Links Course. The Links is a great addition to the Old Course as it can play as tough as the original. Like the Old Corse if you think your way around the course, pick good lines off the tee, limit those wild swings, avoid the numerous hazards & then manage to roll in a few putts then you can pencil in some good scores. Nicely routed through varied terrain, numerous elevation changes, strategic bunkering & large undulating greens will provide the golfer a serious challenge every time out. Great practice area, RV & camping facilities onsite.

Great Challenge: fast greens and a fun layout

I really enjoyed this course from the back tees, each hole is unique. I like this 18 more than the Old course but that could just be me. You absolutely need the course booklet to manage this course as all you can see are the 150 markers, which you may not realize is 150 until the 3rd hole.
The front nine fairway should be cut shorter with the greens as rock hard as they are. It seemed like the backnine grass was more lush and shorter.
My favourite holes are: 3, 8, 11, 14, 16

Fun Day

The staff were very friendly.
The Links Course is just over 7000 yards off the tips and offers a great test with the undulating greens.
The greens were in great shape being firm and fast.

The front nine has been arounf for years and is a great layout with everthing in front of you. On the back nine there are a few blind tee shots that require a few times to play to get the correct line. The 270 yard par three is a real challenge withhazzard to the right.

Love the course and make it an annual trip to play both courses.

Not the star, but could be.

This course is newer, but is really coming into its own. Anybody who can't get on the awesome "Old Course" should embrace playing the Links. It's definitely a good test, as it is looong...but is really a great layout. A lot of elevation changes for a "links" course, but still the rolling fairways, bunkers and tough greens you'd expect.
Worth the drive and the very reasonable price.
