Good Morning TGCC Members & Friends -
We had a Board Mt last night and would like to provide a positive update for the campground portion of the TGCC property! We have been in discussion with our local AHS Inspector, as well as, the Town Of Trochu and Town Council and they are supporting us to open the campground portion of our facility only. Attached are the campground guidelines that we will be following.
The campground will open for overnight camping (seasonal & temporary sites) on Thursday, May 7th with our Manager on site for supervision & enforcement of the guidelines. All campers MUST maintain social distancing. Due to the 30 foot distancing rule for RVs, the seasonal sites can be at 100% capacity but the lower campground (temporary sites) can only be booked to 50% capacity. We will begin taking camping reservations via email at
Please remember that at this time only private campgrounds have been given approval to open and NOT golf courses. No players will be permitted on the course at all. We anticipate strict & large fines for any violation of these rules so we ask that you respect the TGCC and refrain from coming to the course unless you are camping.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us! Again, we really hope to be golfing soon - but just not yet! Stay safe!
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.
