The course at Ponoka Community Golf Club began as a 6-hole affair in 1926 before another three holes were added eight years later. Fifty years then passed until Bill Robinson renovated this course and expanded it into an 18-hole layout.
Today, this tree-lined layout extends to 6,639 yards from the back tees, with holes laid out as two returning nines, each playing to a par of 36. Water hazards feature at several holes, threatening the tee shot on the par three 5th and the approach to the par four 12th, while the fairway on the 18th veers left around a large irrigation pond on the way to the home green.
Highlight holes include the par four 6th (rated stroke index 1 for both men and women); the slightly right doglegged 9th (with out of bounds all along the right side of the fairway); and the shortest of the par threes at the 138-yard 15th, which plays to a large green that’s protected by two bunkers on the right side of the putting surface.
