Rating 71.5
Type Semi-Private
As one of southern Alberta's most popular golfing destinations, Picture Butte Golf Club has hosted a variety of tournaments since opening in 1945, including the Canadian Senior Match Play Championship in 2006. The course has a 27-hole layout that is divided into three nines, which are played in different 18-hole combinations. Picture Butte's Heritage/Harvest golf course starts with the longest of the three nines. The holes are fairly straightforward but you'll face more trouble on the back where water is a prominent feature. You'll find multiple holes that wind around vast lakes. Though each nine has a different character, they share the same scenic landscape provided by the location at the top of a coulee overlooking the surrounding mountains. In addition to the three golf courses, there is also a driving range available at Picture Butte G.C.

Nice Course

Fast Greens, moderate bunker condition. Love the trees on the Heritage & Homestead with great manicured fairways. Play was a little slow as we were booked at the tail end of a tournament.

Not so good

Rather expensive course with a slow pace of play. Layout is interesting, some up and down holes, and a couple of target ones. Clubhouse is showing its ware, and little choice of menu. Staff were clueless, and totally unfriendly. Shame, as I really wanted to like the place.

Great gold

I had a super time, we played as 3. Fast play we kept up to the 2some in front of us. We had a 2some behind us and they kept up until our second nine we pulled away from them.

Good round

First time on the course. The course layout and overal condition was quite good, however a few of the greens were rough and bare in spots. There has been some ...interesting weather in the area recently which may have contributed to this. Had a fun and enjoyable round. The staff at the pro shop was slightly confrtontational when checking in. Good value!

Course is in Great shape

This is not the first time I've played this course but it was probably in the best shape I've seen it this time. The course is moderately challenging with lots of trees if you miss the wide fairways. Water comes into play on more than a few holes where accuracy trumps length. Greens where excellent even on the Monday of a long weekend. Overall very enjoyable course to play, my only complaint is the tree on the first hole that is right in the middle of the fairway making for a very difficult third shot on the par 5. It wouldn't be so bad if it came later in the order but as it stands I usually walk away with a bogie to start my round :(
