Rating 72.0
The country hospitality at The Ranch, five minutes west of Edmonton, belies the fact that this is one challenging course. One elevation change has been nicknamed the "Pit of Doom" and the final hole has been rated the toughest on the Canadian Tour. Rated one of the Top 100 courses in Canada, The Ranch comprises two distinct nine-hole layouts. The front nine feature a links-style design, while the back nine include a narrow, tree-lined fairways and ominous water hazards.

Great layout, great pro shop and great staff.

I play at The Ranch regularly because it’s a great course with the best staff. I love the course layout itself. It’s very well maintained and the practice facilities are perfect on their own if you don’t have time to play. Little music and a beer at the driving range make for a nice quiet evening enjoying the fresh air and beautiful sunset.

Challenging

Course is in reasonably good condition but some of the fairways were trimmed a little low. We also found that some of the greens were not consistent in speed and possibly had been replaced. I tried out to many bunkers and again found very little sand in a couple.

It was a great day to play. The group in front of us fell behind and this pushed the round out to 4:45 hrs. which is slow.

They do offer a loyalty card which sounds very interesting and better value if you play more rounds.

Alright course

The course wasn't bad. The greens are a bit spotty in places, but it's early season. I've played later in the season and it's been fine. Pace of play is pretty good, as with most courses with GPS carts, the marshals don't typically patrol. There are some weirdly laid out holes (15 and 18 stand out in this), but its a nice enough track. Staff have always been friendly, and you can't beat the twilight rate with a meal certificate.

Stay Away, far far away

12 of us went there , as we have virtually every year. This year (a Monday at 11:30 am no less) one of our guys couldnt play at the last minute. They refuse, & continue to refuse, to provide a raincheck for the non player (we paid in advance). Classy operation.

Now for the golf. Its a bit of a goat track. But they clearly put out too many players as $$$ is all they care about. Pace of play was ridiculous. No marshall in sight (I guess thats because it costs $$).Course has some beyond stupid holes. I would stay far away. Far better alternatives out there..

And oh, the clubhouse is a joke. Barely better than an Atco trailer imo.
