About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 72
Length 6310 yards
Slope 129
Rating 70.8

Opened in 1945, Picture Butte Golf Club has since become one of southern Alberta's most popular golfing destinations. The club has hosted several tournaments over the years, including the Canadian Senior Match Play Championship in 2006. The golf course has a scenic location atop a coulee just north of Lethbridge, providing golfers with views of the surrounding hillsides from nearly every hole. The 27-hole course is divided into three nines that can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The Homestead/Harvest golf course is the shortest of the three combinations, but it also has the most water. The par-4 fifth is the toughest water hole on the front nine. It wraps around a massive lake but that is just preparation from the formidable water hazards that you'll face on the back nine.

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 :(
