13 Lush Golf Courses. 13 Provincial Parks.
When it comes to golf, there’s something special about pulling up to the first tee box and looking down a groomed fairway surrounded by tall trees (or wide-open prairie) and clear blue sky. Mix in the sounds of birds chirping, water flowing and other songs of nature, and it’s hard to not feel a sense of peace and relaxation.
