Since opening in 2003, Blackhawk Golf Club has quickly garnered a strong reputation amongst both locals and visitors. Alberta's own Rod Whitman designed the golf course. The riverside layout begins by sweeping upward onto a plateau before tumbling down into the river valley through forests of white poplar and pine. Although at 6,777 yards it is not long by modern championship standards, it is a course that requires careful thought and strategy. There is a lot of variety in the greens. Most feature bold contouring that dips and dives along the rumpled prairie landscape and there are some with steep fronts and swells while others are canted to one side.

Reviewed on

A well laid out course with some very creative holes. The back 9 will challenge even the most seasoned golfer. The driving range provides both artificial and real turf for pre-game warm up. There is also a 3 hole, short-game, practise area which is maintained to the same high-standard as the main course. I can't wait to golf here again!
