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.

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.

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.

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.

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 !

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.

The course was challenging but almost every green is chewed up. Really bad for putting! You would think the 18th green in front of the clubhouse would be better maintained...The grounds keepers didn't seem to care that we were hitting onto a green they were working on and stood on the green as we waited. Sprinklers going on multiple tee boxes made driving very difficult. It was a bit of a gong show!

FRONT NINE IS MORE OPEN. SOME WATER HAZARDS AND A FAIR AMOUNT OF SAND TRAPS. BACK NINE HAS MORE TREES AND NARROWER , DRIVES HAVE TO BE A LITTLE MORE ACCURATE. FUN TO GOLF AND ENJOYABLE SCENERY. WE DID 18 HOLES THERE, 2 DAYS IN A ROW. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS COURSE. STAFF IS GREAT, FOOD AND BEVERAGES IS GOOD.

Good value through Golfnow. Typical Canadian course price wise. Course could use more water. Back nine is mature and more fun to play. We were not pressed for play as in not overbooked. Overall a good day out . Will definitely play here again.
