Originally opened as a nine-hole course in 1971, Black Bull Golf Resort now offers a total of 27 holes. There is an 18-hole course as well as a nine-hole executive course. Black Bull is conveniently situated only an hour from Edmonton near Pigeon Lake, one of Central Alberta's most popular vacation destinations. It is just far enough from the city to feel like a getaway, a feeling that is enhanced even further by the beautiful mature forests that enclose the golf course. The championship course is challenging enough for avid golfers but it's not overly punishing. The layout features plenty of strategically placed bunkers as well as elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. In addition to the championship and executive courses, there is also a driving range lined with mature trees, mimicking the feel of the golf course.
