Golf Courses in the Lesser Slave Lake Region

Built on the shores of the Lesser Slave Lake, the Gilwood Golf Course and Country Club is an 18-hole oasis in the thick of the forest, only 10 km from Slave Lake.

A target style course where accuracy is rewarded, golfers at Gilwood must take care to curb errant shots and keep their balls on the fairway. A ball landing in th thickly treed rough is almost guaranteed to cost its owner at least a stroke. Balls are not always safe on the fairways either, thanks to some strategically place bunkers and a handful of well placed water hazards.

The course gives even the most experienced golfers a challenge, which is demonstrated each year at numerous tournaments.
