Cougar Creek Golf Resort
2519 Highway 16
Cougar Creek Golf Resort is located 50 km (30 minutes) west of Edmonton or 4 km west of the Highway 43 (Alaska Highway) junction on the South side of Highway 16 (Yellowhead Trail/Highway). If you were traveling across Canada, you would have to pass Cougar Creek on the journey. Jasper National Park and the Canadian Rockies are only three hours away.
If coming from Edmonton, you may take Highway 16 (Yellowhead) which runs east/west through the city and by passes all towns along the way or Highway 16A which is Stony Plain Road in Edmonton and goes through the City of Spruce Grove and the Town of Stony Plain before connecting to Highway 16 just before the Highway 43 junction. Both ways can be taken as the course is past where they join, but if time is a factor Highway 16 is quicker.
A large stone sign complete with waterfall, marks the entrance to the course. 1 km signs both east and west warn of the entrance to come.
For overnight hotel accommodation, Cougar Creek can recommend a number of places based on convenience and location.

The weather in Alberta is one of change, sometimes not only from spring, summer, fall and winter but also from hour to hour. The temperature during the golf season can range from 2°C (late season) to 30+°C (mid season).
Alberta has the greatest number of sunshine hours per year than any other Canadian province. Daylight hours during June allow golf to be played as early as 6:00 am until 11:00 pm and because of our short season we take advantage of every hour.
Canadian temperatures are given by degree Celsius as we are metric. The freezing point is 0°C (32°F).
