Sturgeon Valley Golf & Country Club was formed in 1960, with an initial 18-hole layout in play three years later. A major redesign then took place in 1980, with Bill Robinson setting out ten new holes on another parcel of land.
A number of course improvements have taken place since then, including the replacement of several greens, the building of dykes to prevent flooding, the addition of new tee boxes, the renewal of the irrigation system and the construction of a new reservoir to triple the water capacity.
Today, the course measures 6,739 yards from the back tees, playing to a par of 72, with holes arranged as two returning loops of nine. Highlight holes include the 425-yard 9th (rated stroke index 1) with water to the left and right of the fairway, and the 397-yard 13th which swings markedly left as it narrows towards the green.
