“The course has seen dramatic improvements on an already excellent track. It is one of the nicest courses you could play for the dollars you spend. Excellent facilities and a friendly, welcome atmosphere awaits golfers and has one of the best views in central Alberta for lunch.”
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 — and why it’s host for many provincial amateur and professional events.
We’re semi-private, with about 500 members and a nice mix of daily fee players. And at a quick 45 minutes from Edmonton, we’re a great getaway for a round with your golf buds, or as the venue for your all-important outing. You’ll feel at home the moment you arrive.
The Ponoka Community 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.
We’re a full-service facility that boasts two stunning eating facilities: the Rusty Putter Grill & Patio serves up a wide variety of menu options; the Eagle’s Nest Banquet Room is available year-round for your special event.
