About Trochu Golf & CC
With Us the Grass is Greener
The Trochu Golf and Country Club boasts some of the best greens in Alberta, along with a layout that will challenge golfers of all walks of life. The present nine hole course in Trochu, designed by Syd Pudicomb, was constructed in 1990 and opened the fall of 1991. We are also home to the World's Largest Golf Tee! Be sure to stop and get a picture at this great landmark!
Our great scenery, great conditions, and hospitality will bring you back time and time again!
The course is fashioned around a creek which meanders through a natural coulee with uphill and downhill lies, challenging the golfer on several fairways. Treed hillsides and brush are in evidence on five or six holes.
The most challenging hole is the par five, 413 yard 6th. To make par, a long drive is recommended down this narrow fairway, with an out of bounds on the left, and a row of trees on the right. A long iron shot will take you across the creek , which lies directly below and in front of the sharply raised green. A row of thick brush rises from the creek bed to the right, and sits to the left of the green.
With a creek just in front of the green, the par four 2nd is easily the most scenic hole. Your drive must head down a gently sloping and generous fairway to lay up in front of the green. The island green is protected by a lagoon to the left, a creek which flows in front and to the right side, and sand traps to the right and left. It's a special hole that makes you grateful to be a golfer.
