Wainwright Golf and Country Club
Wainwright Golf Club is a two-hour drive from Edmonton and it sits just one hour from Lloydminster. The course has a traditional layout featuring a mix of tree-lined and links holes that offer plenty of variety. With narrow fairways lined with deciduous trees and small, tricky green, it's a golf course that demands accuracy. Straight shots will be generously rewarded and there is thick rough waiting to penalize errant shots. The original front nine is tighter than the back nine and there are more trees framing most of the holes. Though the back nine is more open, it's not any less challenging. In addition to the course, Wainwright Golf Club also has a practice facility with a driving range that extends more than 250 yards with several different targets and also a large putting green.

Wainwright course upgrades
The Wainwright course is going through upgrades that will challenge future golfers.
Great friendly staff
Love coming here. Great staff that always has time for you!
Nothing extra ordinary about that golf course, for the first 3 holes we were followed by a maintenance guy mowing the grass. On the tee off the guy never stop his lawn mower of working, it was really annoying and really start our round of golf on wrong foot.
Good value with hot deal
Would not play course at full price . average shape for a community course. Front 9 was ok but got behind a couple that were playing multiple balls on each holes looked like she was learning to golf. Course was fairly busy so a Marshall could have helped.
Greens are in good shape but are extremely slow, and need to be cut regularly. Some really easy par 4's where there isn't need for an accurate tee shot, because their isn't really much trouble.
First time in a couple years
Not my usual course and was warned that the new management have changed a few things, especially the price of a round. This was surely the case and I had been watching GolfNow daily for a decent price. It didn’t seem to be the case but I found this $12 rd just out of pure luck. Daily fees are quite expensive and the courses isn’t in superb shape, if you are looking to golf here daily probably best to get a membership or indeed watch GolfNow for a deal. Enjoyed my rd though but don’t see me going often at there prices.
Overall good value; friendly staff.
Nice, intermediate friendly course; pleasant cordial staff. Pace of play was only fair because it was on a Sunday and course was busier than the usual weekdays when we typically golf. We'll definitely be back as enjoy adjacent camping.
This course is getting better in the last 2 years
The staff is very helpful and polite
Love the diagonal mowing and the sand trap placement . We had a stellar day Watch out for those red ants when searching for a ball - nasty
The eastern fish tacos At the club house were just the item to keep us fuelled for 18 holes !
What we expected
My son and I were meeting halfway between Saskatoon and Edmonton. This course fit the bill perfectly. It was in pretty good shape with all the rain we had this summer. Even though there were lots of people golfing, the pace was fast. Lots of doglegs on the back nine. The bunkers were wet but playable. Greens were fairly fast considering we got a rain shower. A few creeks and ponds running across the fairways. Grass driving range. It was a fun small town course.
Save your money and go to Edgerton instead. The course was very dry and the greens were in terrible condition.
Overall, I enjoyed my round. The conditions were generally good for this time of year. Greens played fast. Course needs a good watering. I will be back
