Opened in the 1950s as a nine-hole course, Edmonton Garrison Memorial Golf & Country Club was expanded to an 18-hole course in 1996. Because of the difference in the time when they were constructed, each nine offers a very different experience. The original front nine features mature poplar trees along the fairways. Indicative of the period when it was built, the greens are smaller than those you might see on more modern golf courses. The size makes for challenging shot placement. In contrast, the greens on the links-style back nine are large and undulating and provide a different kind of test. There is also carefully placed mounding on the back. The centrally located golf course is popular among Edmonton-area locals, partly because of the easy accessibility from St. Albert, Morinville, and Cardiff.
