Where to Golf in Lethbridge, Alberta

Where to Golf in Lethbridge, Alberta September 2, 2018 · 3 min. readWhile the thoughts and opinions are my own, this article was brought to you by a third party. Also, this article may contain affiliate links.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not a good golfer. I don't know my putters very well, I don't know my own driving strength and for some reason I tend to always hit the ball into the water, the sand pit or a tree. But, just because I'm not very good at it doesn't mean I don't enjoy it.

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to visit two golf courses while in Lethbridge. One was Evergreen Golf Centre, a family-friendly golf course, and the other was Paradise Canyon Golf Resort, a picturesque course sitting in the edge of Oldman River.

Evergreen Golf Centre has a nine-hole course, a driving range and a mini putt course for children. The holes range from 65 to 310 yards and meander between trees, ponds and sand pits. The course is small, but comfortable enough for a leisurely golf game.

If golfing isn't your thing, or you need a way to blow off some steam after a failed drive, Evergreen also has an adjacent go-kart course. The karts go up the thirty kilometres an hour, and the course has more than enough turns that you are bound to bump into something. Driving the course is thrilling, but also very safe, so it is an activity for people of all ages.

Paradise Canyon Golf Resort, in contrast, has a full eighteen-hole course. It's a sprawling course, with many of the holes venturing close to the 700-yard mark. All levels of golfers are welcome, but the course is challenging. Each hole is segregated into four different sections for different levels of players. Some of the holes are even uniquely designed, such as Hole 12, which is downhill. This hole offers an incredible view of the valley as well as a challenge to the most experienced players.

Paradise is such a beautiful course, in fact, that it played host to the PGA MacKenzie Tour this past summer. The tour was one of the largest golfing tournaments in North America, bringing this lesser known golfing resort into international spotlight.

Hong Kong Island

I had another another late morning in Hong Kong today, but that's because I only had one location in mind: The Peak on Hong Kong Island.

Last night on my way home I had bought a bottle of Aquarius Water. It's a wonderful beverage I first discovered in Japan. It's like the Gatorade of the Orient. No matter where I went in Japan I bought a bottle of it, and last night I bought a liter of it at a nearby 7-11. I took a swing of it for breakfast, brushed up and left for the day.

I walked West back to Olympic Station. It was difficult for me to find my way out of the station last night last night, but it was much easier in the daylight. Olympic Station is a huge station, that is several football fields long and multiple stories hight. It was also attached to a shopping mall, which is why it was so large. I also here learned that the reason it was named "Olympic Station" was in honor of several Hong Kong athletes winning gold in the 1996 Summer Olympics.

A Family Guide to Winterlude: the ultimate winterfest in Canada's Capital

The snow has begun to fall, and I had to dust off my winter jacket for the first time today. Winter in Saskatchewan is cringe worthy. Minus fifty Celsius winds, snow drifts against the door, those persistent drafts, pushing out stuck cars, frozen engines, slippery roads, tongues stuck to metal poles... the list goes on. Winter sucks.
