Located just north of Lethbridge, Picture Butte Golf Club sits on top of a coulee, providing views that span across the surrounding mountains. Since opening in 1945, the club has hosted a variety of tournaments including the Canadian Senior Match Play Championship in 2006. It has become one of southern Alberta's most popular golfing destinations. The entire golf course is comprised of three nines that are played in different 18-hole combinations. The Heritage/Homestead course has a large lake right in the center that comes into play on both the front and back. This combination is the longest of the three. The holes are mostly straightforward except for the menacing fifth hole on the Homestead nine. This par 4 sharply wraps around the lake, requiring a tough carry over water.
As one of southern Alberta's most popular golfing destinations, Picture Butte Golf Club has hosted a variety of tournaments since opening in 1945, including the Canadian Senior Match Play Championship in 2006. The course has a 27-hole layout that is divided into three nines, which are played in different 18-hole combinations. Picture Butte's Heritage/Harvest golf course starts with the longest of the three nines. The holes are fairly straightforward but you'll face more trouble on the back where water is a prominent feature. You'll find multiple holes that wind around vast lakes. Though each nine has a different character, they share the same scenic landscape provided by the location at the top of a coulee overlooking the surrounding mountains. In addition to the three golf courses, there is also a driving range available at Picture Butte G.C.
Opened in 1945, Picture Butte Golf Club has since become one of southern Alberta's most popular golfing destinations. The club has hosted several tournaments over the years, including the Canadian Senior Match Play Championship in 2006. The golf course has a scenic location atop a coulee just north of Lethbridge, providing golfers with views of the surrounding hillsides from nearly every hole. The 27-hole course is divided into three nines that can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The Homestead/Harvest golf course is the shortest of the three combinations, but it also has the most water. The par-4 fifth is the toughest water hole on the front nine. It wraps around a massive lake but that is just preparation from the formidable water hazards that you'll face on the back nine.
