Barrhead Golf Club was designed by Les Furber. Though some Americans may not recognize his name, avid golfers might know of Furber's longtime association with Robert Trent Jones. Named as one of Golf Digest's "Best Places to Play," Barrhead is one of central Alberta's most popular courses. Located about an hour northwest of Edmonton, many would argue that the golf course is well worth the drive. The championship layout is a seemingly short 6,650 yards but it still manages to feel quite spacious. To create a challenging test, Furber incorporated a variety of water hazards including a meandering creek and the Paddle River. Barrhead Golf Club's contoured fairways are lined with mature trees, demanding accuracy and well as a good strategy. No two holes are alike on this diverse golf course.
