Not worth the drive from Edmonton

Unfortunately we ended up with a 5 hour 20 minute round with a mid morning tee off time. The greens were in reasonable condition but somewhat bumpy. Better than many in the Edmonton area but not great. The fairways were very hard and cut very short so not very good. The couse layout is O.K. But there are a few holes that need to be redesigned.

Price wise it is a little expensive if you consider the value. Certainly not worth the drive from Edmonton.

They definitely need a Marshall, which we finally saw on hole 16 but he did nothing to speed up play.

Coal Creek Golf Resort

A brilliant fall day for a round of golf. A brisk wind, the sun popping out now & again to light up the turning leaves, fast sloping greens, rolling fairways and wispy fescue grasses to remind you the importance of staying in the fairways. The round started off with a lot of promise, two birdies on the front nine and then I made the turn, whereupon the wheels abruptly fell off. Some days you're on top of your game, some days not. The company was great and the course was as challenging as ever. Any day at Coal Creek is a good day.

Coal Creek Golf Resort

Made the 2 hr drive from home to join a golfing buddy for a game at one of my favorite courses. Always a treat playing on a well conditioned track that offers spacious fairways, huge rolling greens, terrific bunkering, numerous water hazards and brilliantly routed through an old mine site. With attentive, friendly staff, a great practice area and a cozy clubhouse, you're guaranteed a good day. I just wish it was a little closer to home.

Coal Creek Golf Resort

Coal Creek has only recently (2012) come onto the golf scene in Alberta when the owners of the Dodd's Coal Mine hauled the last load of coal out from this site in 2007. Nice of them to think outside the box & commission Puddicombe Golf to come in & design a course that maintains the history of the mine that once was. As you drive onto the property you'll see remnants of the old mine scattered around this rugged landscape, the old tipple, a processing plant & storage facility along with some retired heavy equipment laid to rest in the fescue lined fairways. There are numerous elevation changes, doglegs right & left, uneven fairways, large, undulating greens, a few water hazards & a great mix of short & long holes strategically routed throughout the property. Coal Creek is renowned for its "deep & dark" bunkers. It's not coal but a black copper slag hauled in from a mine in B.C. As golfers you're taught early to avoid them but it would really be a shame to play here & not experience them...they are brilliant. With a new clubhouse, cordial staff, driving range & an RV park onsite, Coal Creek is worth the drive from where ever home is.
