Ponoka Golf Club is “Where Everybody Likes to Play.”

(We used to be “Alberta’s best-kept secret” but the word got out!) That’s what happens when you try to keep a charming, excellent golf course a secret. Everyone finds out – even Golf Digest, who called us one of its recommended “Place to Play” courses.

Located in the scenic Battle River valley, the course offers a mix of parkland and rolling links-style holes which, after your first visit, will leave you wanting more. You’ll find our staggered tee system favorable for your handicap. Ponoka is a decent challenge for all golfers — novice to advanced — which is why it’s host to many provincial amateur and professional events. 

Best of all, we have that the small town “X factor” that cannot be replicated or manufactured: the great atmosphere developed from friendly, hospitable people.

“My friend and I came to this course as a meeting point between Edmonton and Calgary and will definitely be back! We are both beginners and found ourselves able to reasonably keep up. Everyone was very friendly and we had a great afternoon.”

– Andrea Astle

“I give Ponoka five stars. The course is in excellent shape. The staff are doing a fantastic job, focusing on excellent customer service. I’m very impressed with the value-added services with my membership this year, such as the free lessons and wonderful communication strategy through Facebook and email”

– M. Stol

“The course is in excellent condition and the greens are awesome. Keep up the great work management greens keeper and all staff.”

– James Chapple

Our Community Roots Are Deep
Literally & Figuratively. 

The Ponoka Golf Club is the result of hard working residents who possessed a love for the game of golf. Ponoka was established in 1929 — just six holes — by a group of doctors from the adjacent hospital. In 1936, it was expanded to nine holes. In 1987, famed golf architect Bill Robinson oversaw the addition of nine new holes as well as the renovation of the existing nine. Architect Robert Kains has been entrusted to oversee and map out our changes and tweaking since 2000.

Today, our 6,700 yards (from the back tees) course is short by today’s standards, but features challenging, undulating greens. In fact, Ponoka will challenge the best players with a mix of immaculate tree-lined fairways and rolling links-style holes.

Conveniently located in Central Alberta on the Highway 2 corridor between Edmonton and Calgary, we make for a great day away, but not so far you’ll need overnight accommodations.

The Alberta Government has announced additional public health measures to protect the health system and reduce the rising spread of COVID-19 province wide. Additional restrictions come into effect as of 11:59pm on May 9th in our region and will be enforced with $2,000 fines. These measures will be in effect for at least the next [3] weeks.

New restrictions limit who you will be allowed to play golf with. Starting Monday, May 10th, you are only permitted to play golf with members of your own household OR, if you live alone, you may choose up to two non-household close contacts.

The Golf Club will be revising our tee-sheets and as result if you currently have any tee-times booked between May 10th and May 31st, they will be CANCELLED. Because we are unable to identify the living situation of the reservations that currently exist on our tee-sheet, we have no choice but to proceed with cancellations for all of these bookings. (unless you called in and booked Friday morning)

New restrictions limit who you will be allowed to play golf with. Starting Monday, May 10th, you are only permitted to play golf with members of your own household OR, if you live alone, you may choose up to two non-household close contacts.

We are tired of continually having to completely recreate the way that we operate our business and we know that you are also tired of the changing regulations and protocols, but unfortunately this is the situation that exists at this time, so let’s do our best to politely work together during this difficult time so that we can all continue to play the game we love. Starting Friday, May 7th, you will have an opportunity to reserve tee-times for May 10th forward under the terms outlined below:

  • Maximum Booking Size = Twosome (2) people
  • Minimum Booking Size = Single (1) person
  • -TEE TIMES WILL GO TO 5 MIN INTERVALS-PLEASE DO NOT SHOW UP MORE THAN 10 MIN BEFORE-DRIVING RANGE MAX 5 PEOPLE AT A TIME.
  • -MANDATORY MASKS IN AND AROUND THE PROSHOP

**PLEASE REMEMBER DON'T SHOOT THE MESSENGER, ME AND THE STAFF DO NOT MAKE THE RESTRICTIONS WE JUST HAVE TO BE THE ONES TO PUT THEM IN PLACE. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO MAKE THIS INTO A POSITIVE SITUATION FOR ALL.

-I will be sending an email out later today once I get tee-on set up with the new tee sheet intervals and rules. I will also then set up online booking. Until then please call to book your times. Thank you everyone, and please be patient over the next few weeks.
